The Six Layers of Imagination by hectigo The Six Layers of Imagination by hectigo
I've done too many square-shaped pictures recently, so this time I really decided to paint something different. Only 300 pixels wide and 4200 pixels high, this is something you probably haven't seen before.

~sakur asked me to draw something for her, so this is for you. I should've probably made it more of a surprise, but I hope this will suffice. All my other ideas at the moment are somewhat angsty and serious, so it would've felt weird to dedicate them to anyone. ^^;

Once again I must thank everyone at #kupoli for your creative feedback - your ideas were good and gave me inspiration to carry on.

There are some pieces of text hidden in the picture by the way. Given the size of the piece, it shouldn't be too easy to find them either.

The parts from top to bottom:

I - The New Horizon
II - Flying in the Sunset
III - The Forest of Fairies
IV - The Lost Fish
V - The Unlucky Adventurer
VI - Hot as Hell

Media: Three layers in OpenCanvas 1.1, Wacom Graphire2 A6.

Törmäsin tähän työhön Harhakuvassa, ja mielenkiinnosta tulin katselemaan sitä tähänkin. <3 Löysin kolme tekstinpätkää, olen paras (;;

Jumpe. Kun tuo latautui näytölleni ja scrollasin alas päin leukani tippui navan kohdalle. Erittäin hieno idea, mukava ja hauska. En osaa sanoa mitään hienostunutta, mutta kyllä osaan sanoa pari kehua. Erittäin nätti ja pehmeä väritys, minä pidän.

Perhaps somebody will someday manage to create a digital painting that really is never going to end. The width/height-ratio of this one is still just 1:14. Thank you for the comment anyway :)

Tämä piti ihan olohuoneessa näyttää muille kun oli sen verran ''hauska'' BD. Vielä olisit pistänyt loppuun näkymiä helvetistä niin olisi tullut karmaiseva loppu ( hmm...tai ehkä ei sittenkään x} ) .

This is impressive and beautiful but the part with water...
I think it would have looked even better if it was "deeper". It would have meant more lenght to the pic but it was weird to see that deepwater fish so early in the water.
Ah anyway. Very smooth picture. I love the sunset/sunrise.

You're dedicating me this?! Aww, thank you so much! I would have been happy to receive even the smallest sketch. And this one doesn't mind about angst or seriousness. Too bad you can't estimate how long did it take to finish this one. The tree part is my favorite, abowe is Sun with nice and warm colors and below butterflies that are glowing in the shadows. Oh, I can see my name in the bottom of the ocean! Right next to a skeleton, mm, interesting. xD The picture, or more like collection of little artworks, is great. Thank you again~ :glomp:

I'm glad that you like it :) Believe me, I think you're worth more than the smallest sketch. The part with the trees is perhaps my favorite too, though I do like all of them some way.

This wasn't really that work-intensive - perhaps because I didn't spend half of the time just staring at the screen instead of drawing, like I usually do :P . I used a style and a technique that I'm already familiar with, and ideas just kept flowing at me. Any time estimate I could give would be really inaccurate, so it'll probably remain a mystery. :)
