Sweet Dreams by Ciorano Sweet Dreams by Ciorano
A piece I did for @ wild-orca on Tumblr!

Quite an unusual interspecies meeting considering that these two - pacific white-sided and atlantic spotted dolphins - live in completely different areas so they just can't actually meet each other. What also differs is the experience I've got during creating this. Strangely, PWSD was not a problem, I really enjoyed drawing this 'phin! But spotted dolphin had given me a few problems at once.

I had to redraw this part three times. First - the pose chosen in the beginning didn't satisfy me at all at coloring stage, so - had to change it. Second - choosing the colors was hard, since the dolphin is at the distance, but I also wanted him to be not a "casual" part of the background. Third trouble I had - SPOTS, FRECKLES. LOTS OF THOOOOSE. Can't say if that was, well, that problematic, however it did take moooore time than I expected.

Overall tho, it was fun to do this work! Finally I'd a 100% chance to draw a species different from bottlenoses and orcas. In the future I really want to try porpoises and minkes (minkes are my fave butte, luv them <3), but I gotta finish the commissions first. :)

T0T Stunning, every time, Cio!
I love the soft and sharp and gentle aura-glow, it's amazing! ;;
The glow is nice against all that blue as well, just the right amount. XD

You manage often to instil a sense of curious and tranquil. :') I love your ability to tell stories in your art. :love:

XDD Damn them spotties! Though, yes  very nice to see change. :thumbsup:
:'D You sure are dedicated to repaint/draw a lot of your art. <3
Depth/focus is always interesting. ^^

Captivating. <3

Thank you! :D
I am dedicated to redraw some part a couple of times, perhaps it's just my perfectionism hitting too hard. But that's also a problem, I can get dissappointed of a drawing too fast and not finish it. This becomes the reason why I have not much works posted, despite it's been 3,5 years of me drawing (daaaaaamn, it's been so long I didn't even realize it before). Due to this I can't stick to any art challenge, however sometimes I'm so eager to participate in something. ;-;

Also I noticed you commented a lot of my works lately, thanks for that too! Sorry that I might've missed some and didn't reply, perhaps notifications get lost when I try to delete older ones while on mobile version of DA.

I've been thinking of this lyrics when I was finishing the work! Glad you like the results!

P.S. Since we here, gotta say that your drawing will be there really soon. c;

You're welcome. They're a great fit, I say. For two species that normally wouldn't be seen together, a dreamscape is the perfect setting.

:excited: I eagerly look forward to it.

You always do an amazing job with the background ,Such detail ;V; I really love this  cause  the PWSD And the spottys are my one of my favorites! and the fact that they are put together by one of my favorite artist is amazing ;; you're drawings seem to always have jellyfish in them,but i can't tell if they're jellys or not.But i love how theres Detailed background animals in most of them ;; a lot of your drawings are so visual,they always have a glowing feeling! i love the white in this one. not to much to the point where its ugly,but the perfect dose of white Love                                                  KEEP UP YOUR AMAZING WORK *.*

Thank you, glad you liked it! 
Those are not jellies, but little bubbles (tbh I wanted to do jellies so hard, but enoughhh), didn't render them properly as I was afraid of overdetailing this whole thing. Talking of worrying, the "dose" of white also kept me questioning if it was too much or to little. Though, seems like it's fine!
