Humanity's Nightmare by AzeeraTheNinja Humanity's Nightmare by AzeeraTheNinja
Just something I tried to draw in less than thirty minutes (pretty much a fail right now ^^;) About a nightmare i had, and I've been trying to figure out what the meaning is behind it so here's what i have so far.... Warning: it's going to be pretty... meh... ^^;

The faces represent different emotions I've been feeling, or will be in the near future, sadness, anger, close to tears, and so on (i'll probably add more faces later). There is a fire in the background, represented by the smoke that entices some of the heads, the fire representing the suggestion of chaos, or trying to cause it. (recently I have thought fire as a type of hope or the will to do something.) With the faces in this manner, some emotions over power each other, and as you can see, has turned the picture into a dark, chaotic, mess. Also, the dark decrepit looking hands on the heads in the middle-ish area symbolizes a desperate need to break away or maybe longing for something....
By the way, the waves are also a different form of smoke, that I'm not sure about yet...

So I was thinking that to people with power (government, dictators, etc.) this would be a nightmare to them, if their will (the fire) caused them to go in chaos, not sure of what's going to happen next.

So yeah, hope you like it, I'll hopefully make it better soon ^^ (note: this is actually only a part of it, it's just that I had to crop it down since my hands kept shaking so I couldn't get a steady shot ^^; And of course the original looks better since I used pencil and camera's never really do a piece like that justice ^^;)

I like this!
I rarely remember my dreams/nightmares, but I always want to :( The ones I do remember are mostly set in 'normal' everyday environments, with just normal people. Not something crazy, surreal looking like this, or something beautifull, abstract or indefinable.

Keep it up!

Thanks! ^^ Sadly the dreams I remember or have are either scary, sad, or make absolutely no sense ^^; And hopefully you can remember yours, I think it could really turn into something ^^

i just viewed this piece again and discovered something really rare! The heads and faces move and appear to swirl around the center. The more i gaze into your masterpiece, the more i feel it pulling me in. i also can nearly hear a slight screaming. You have so excellently captured your dream impression! The impact this leaves with me, is profoundly moving!

i am too! i also notice your image cycles and seems to move forward, out of the 2 dimensional plane and at then mysteriously moves inward.

Yes, that was part of the nightmare, except I'm not sure on the inward part, I think I put that on purpose/accident.... I think that happened, but I can't remember anymore.... :confused:

This piece is so profound! So iconic to what is REALLY going on around the world. I simply Love your piece and i am very proud of you for being symbolic in nailing down your dreamworld visions!

As always, your complete and full understanding of the intent of government, dictators, etc. per your discription is so powerful and yields plenty to your outstanding drawing! And both your writing and drawing here is the best i have seen in digging into the depth from both angles.

Man, Allyson, i really hope to see more of this stuff!!

Wow thanks ^^ I was hoping I got it down, but apparently even if I didn't it still looks as if I did ^^ (i'm pretty close to what my nightmare looked like I think)

That's great to know and hear, thanks a lot!!

I hope for the same ^^ Also, thanks for the fav ^^

Dreams have a way of offering us a glimpse into our sub conscience. You have definitely, 100 % nailed down yours!

WOW! I'm really glad you posted it and hope you continue to explore the realms of your dreaming realities as i have been doing for quite a while now. it is a way of getting closer to understanding ourselves, i think.

That's true, and very interesting. Thanks ^^

I think it is, too. Though a certain dream of mine that I decided to interpret wasn't exactly the best thing for me to do. I'm kind of sad about it, but it's okay, probably just something I'll get over soon...

Thanks for all of your support and input by the way, I appreciate it
