an ordinary day by drachenmagier an ordinary day by drachenmagier
Colored while listening to a Final Fantasy Battle Medley. :D [link]

Again two kinds of people, when it comes to the interpretation of the drawing so far:

One side looks at it and tells me about the weird things one person thinks while everybody else just stares at it and is weirded out.

the other side sees just the adventures you have in your own head. And what could be better than battling the Queen of Eternal Ice when you're waiting in a snowstorm for the bus to finally show up?

What is it for you?

Traditional Media on A4-mixed media paper :D

My first impression was that the figures above were all guardian angels (of whatever imagined sort by their respective mortals) and the interplanar struggles going on in life daily. 

But the other versions are fine too. :D

An interesting interpretation. :D And in a way not too far from my initial idea. After all, stories do tend to help us more than we would imagine. Some can easily be called life-savers too. :D

Thank you. I agree. Stories literally change the way we think. Did you for example that when someone tells a story, a listener's brain becomes synchronous with the same neural activity?  I just learned that, very interesting.

Interesting.
The way the brain ticks is always fascinating, but it's always the small things, that show how complex it is. In such moments, I always tend to sit there and think: "but... how does that work?" O-o

Definitely the second option for me.

I cannot go out without my MP3 player so I can just shut myself off from the world around me (and people... I just don't like people; as you know lol) and loose myself in my own little stories that accompany the music; and think up new ones too.

I zone out a hell of a lot. I've noticed I've been having to ask people to repeat themselves a lot recently lol :XD:

I'm trying to lay off the MP3 a bit, since I fear it might damage my ears over time. ^^ But books, comics, games... that's always with me.

And the MP3, from time to time. d:

I'm always fantasizing about having PK, when I'm waiting around or otherwise idle.

Is that angel a gunner? Monster Hunter FTW! I love your coloring, and I don't want to poke my fingers through your profile, so I must ask: What do you use for color? Is it prismacolor markers like it seems, or something else....

:icondrachenmagier:
drachenmagier Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Angelgunners are only logical: It's the best way to attack from afar. >:3 Plus, wings can't really take a lot of damage, so backrow it is.

Not the brand prismacolor in any case. :D the more I hear about it, the more I want to try those! I used two kinds of markers: Copics and a no-name-brand of water based markers. The moment a surface looks sketchy, it's waterbased markers, since those are horrible hard to blend. ^^'

I'm definitely the one who has the fantasy adventures in my head.
I'm told day in and day out from my mother in law that fantasy and games are for kids, it really makes me sad to be shunned for something that I love. But this picture resembles exactly what my mind does on an average day! :)

If fantasy is for kids, I wonder where all the movies, comics and books come from. ;)

Believing in something you love can't possibly be a bad thing~.

I think it's an awesome drawing! And I thought of it as it was actually happening like that, but just the one in the hood knows about that...and maybe under that hood she's smiling at it.

I always thought that every dream, every fantasy, can be real if we believe strongly enough. :D So, I'm sure the one dreaming can make it real. And smile at it.

What it is for me, huh?
The heroine at first glance of the Queen thinks, "Hell no!" She then opens a portal to another world which happens to be a buss stop and hides among the crowd thinking, "I'll just go order a warm, sizzlingly hot pizza and wait for the others to wrap this one up." :XD:

But I think a few quotes will also serve this one well:
“Lord, I specially care for those who are very logical, pragmatic and realistic; the ones who get impatient of those who believe in the little blue horse.”
― Hélder Câmara
“When we are dreaming alone it is only a dream. When we are dreaming with others, it is the beginning of reality.”
― Hélder Câmara

I do wonder what I would choose, given the options of either fighting for something I believe in in a world like the one above... Or living a calm and most likely longer life in the world we call real.

I can't really say. :D

But I'd say Hélder Câmara is right: Reality is just what we all believe in and dream of. Believing can move mountains. ^^

Eonari Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013
For anyone I guess it would depend on what they would gain by fighting and what they might lose if they didn't. But a good choice is never to fight unless the odds are in your favor. The wiser choice is to always make sure that they are. ;)

Yeah. When you think about it, there is nothing as powerful as humanity's ability to dream and their ambition to make it real.

That would be so according to the Art of War by Sun tzu. But often you don't fight for the glory of someone else. You fight for something you wish to stand up for. And those battles seem often hopless from the beginning. :)
