Amanita virosa by SandraHultsved Amanita virosa by SandraHultsved
"Their empty eyes was haunting,
although it did not frighten me as much as it should have.
Then they started to sing to me in my head,
whispering for my help."


Done with ink & graphite pencils.

This got the very honorable :iconkosa1plz::iconkosa2plz:

The thing is that they came to me in my dreams, like I wrote in the description, so I'm not sure what it was that they wanted from me. But I of course have my thoughts, but I think it's more fun if people get to create their own story. I heard many different ones from my friends that was very amusing^^,

This is such a haunting and mysterious image. Even without their eyes, you still portrayed so much expression on their faces that you can tell they are not to be feared and only are asking for help.

It was very inspiring as you can tell. and yes I'm surprised myself that I remembered so many details, with the stream and how they were laying there in the forest. Their long white dresses, that I especially looked at and of course their faces. It was as if they had been taken out from one of my artworks already. They also rested on some kind of veil, but I figured it wouldn't look very well if I would draw it^^ But the thing with the mushrooms came later when I drew it.

That's just the feeling I got in my dream, too bad I woke up, cause I really wonder what they wanted me...but it's fun guessing too. Two of my friends both had very different but very interesting ideas about them.

Well some of them at least^^ An other day I woke up all sweaty after dreaming I was going to be stung by a bee, there was also a bug and a spider with spider babies in that dream...!

Well... Thats interisting Öo 
It's also interisting in how many different ways we - the artists - get our inspiration. In my case it is DAYdreaming and mostly music; pictures and stories created in my head by my associations of everything.
Very mysterious, that art-thingie.. :)

Really creepy I would say:P

That's how I usually get most of my inspiration too. I unfortunately don't have much nature around me now, after moving to the capital, but that is what inspires me the most I think. I love just strolling around in the forest gathering my thoughts. And I think after I moved away from it, my longing and inspiration for nature has become much more visible in my art.

No. In my dream I also saw them as sisters or twins.

sorry if my question was a bit insensitive, it was just a thought,but thinking twice i shouldn't have asked.
you're welcome :)they are very pretty.
do you plan on creating a story for them too?

SandraHultsved Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
No worries about that^^
I was thinking of keeping it open for interpretation, I think everyone will feel a different story about them. And I would love to hear them. So I will try to keep my thoughts to myself:aww:
