Ever wondered what's behind the light that blinds you?

Same world as the busstop. :)

Edit: The discussions I got to hear about this picture, when I showed it to friends, were rather interesting. Most people seemed unable to see the dryad, till someone mentioned it. Many only saw the girl, never looking at the light source. (It was hilarious to watch their faces when they discovered it, btw). In a way that is just what I wanted to show with the drawing. We are so well taught and see only what we believe to be part of the world we're supposed to see...

Reminds me what a friend once said. The best way to hide is not to find a good hiding place. The best way to hide is just to make it so clear that you're in no need of hiding that anybody who searches will just walk past you.

How right he is. :)

Edit 2: It got a DD! 8D
Thank you SO much for suggesting it @=SaloGuardione
And thank you just as many times for this feature! @^SylwiaTelari

absolutamente perfecto, no puedo decir otra cosa de esta maravillosa obra de arte. Al ver tu obra me demuestra o me da la sensación de ver el mundo detrás del mundo, aquella belleza, que solo pueden ver pocas personas. La belleza oculta de este mundo, que aquellos que están enserado en su propio mundo en donde no hay cambios ni emociones, nunca podrán apreciar la verdadera belleza de este mundo y las emociones que nos trasmite. tus obras siempre me emocionan ya que siempre me muestran mundos fantásticos llenos de color y emociones de todo tipo. Tus obras demuestran vida.
El diseño del dibujo es muy elaborado y demuestra que le dedicaste mucho trabajo, los colores le dan vida a tu obra y lo dejan aun mas impresionantes, el fondo nos demuestra un mundo que no se detiene a apreciar esas pequeñas y hermosas cosas que nos da el mundo
translation with google:
absolutely perfect, I can not say anything of this wonderful work of art. Seeing your work shows me or give me the feeling of seeing the world behind the world, that beauty, that only few people can see. The hidden beauty of this world, that those who are in their own world enserado where no changes or emotions can never appreciate the true beauty of this world and the emotions it conveys. Your works always excited me because I always show colorful fantasy worlds and emotions of all kinds. Your work shows life.
The tread design is elaborate and shows that you dedicate a lot of work, the colors give life to your work and leave even more impressive, the background shows us a world that does not stop to appreciate the little and beautiful things that gives us world
