Fantasy by Skategirl Fantasy by Skategirl
This image is very special to me and I hope it’ll be special for you my friends.
I did it with all affection and love that I can have, perhaps it does not pleases to everyone, but I am totally satisfied with the outcome and would like to dedicate it to a special person, my father, who despite 12 years without him, he still live in my thoughts, in my world of fantasy and in my dreams. Our dreams, I believe, are much bigger than our world and deep into them we can experience things that we can never perform in reality.
If we close our eyes, everything can be real, everything may have life, we can fly, can go to places that we have never met, dream is very good. But sometimes we are forced to wake up from these dreams, fighting to make them real. This piece represents that. Dream and never want to wake up, being stuck to a beautiful and perfect world, but unreal.

A kiss to all
Dream and Live!


Portuguese version:Essa imagem é muito especial para mim e espero que ela seja especial para vocês meus amigos.
Fiz ela com o maior carinho e amor que eu possa ter,talves não agrade alguns,mas eu estou totalmente satisfeita com o resultado e gostaria de dedica la a uma pessoa especial,meu pai,que apesar dos 12 anos sem ele,ele ainda esta vivo em meus pensamentos,em meu mundo de fantasia e em meus sonhos.Os nossos sonhos acredito que seja bem maior que o nosso mundo e dentro dele podemos vivenciar coisas que jamais vivenciariamos na realidade.
Quando fechamos os olhos,tudo pode ser real,tudo pode ter vida,podemos voar,podemos ir para lugares nunca conhecido,sonhar é tão bom.Mas em certos momentos temos que acordar desses sonhos, lutamos para que ele seja eterno.A minha imagem de hoje representa isso.O sonhar e nunca mais querer acordar,o estar presa a um mundo lindo e perfeito,porém irreal.

Um beijo a todos
Sonhe e Viva!

I really love this piece. I am enchanted by it. I've been for some bewitching reason staring at it for more than 30 minutes and just fascinated by the theme... I love nudes, but not just grotesque nudes but artistic nudes that express a feeling... Thank you for posting this picture. You got my attention on this one!

I am very moved by this picture. It is the kind of thing that i will be trying to do with photograpgy and photoshop. The way you got the light to reflect, yet be absorbed by her body. It is great that you added all the little details that will help to keep the observer watching. I keep waiting for her to wake up and relize whats going on around her.

I think we can all get caught up in big, dramatic ideas with faeries and magic sometimes - it's so refreshing to see art that reminds us of those smaller moments that are more beautiful for being there. Your attention to detail and use of colour is exquisite - your scheme of complimentary colours and green motifs (if I'm right) reminds me of Absinthe (the Green Fairy) in a lesser, stolen moment of quiet vulnerability. It's really wonderful. Thanks for your art :)
