Escape in Dreams by KaceyM Escape in Dreams by KaceyM
A commission for j.fox

J.Fox is a young freedom fighter of sorts (not in an actual military). You may remember him from another piece I did: [link]

Here, J is catching a bit of sleep in a war zone, dreaming of a happier life, one with the girl he loves.

One of the things I really enjoyed doing in this piece, was creating different moods through the use of color saturation or lack thereof.

Since I know the gun enthusiasts will want to know, that is an M14 rifle with scope. ^.^

This piece was done with acrylic paints on 9"x12" illustration board.

Touching. Tell him to keep on fighting and she'll be there when he gets home.

I think this song "When You're Gone" by Avril Lavigne is totally suitable for J.Fox now. That song makes me feel like crying and also this art. *sniff sniff*

I love the way this looks, the outfit he has on looks very WW2-esque. And the fact that he is dreaming of being with his love is very touching. Great work!

You didn't have to tell me, I knew what it was as soon as it found my sight. I love a M-14 and this picture looks really good.

Wow gotta say I love this. The two of them look very adorable together, then I switch to the right and I get this sadness at how lonely he must be. Very nice detail on the rifle. My mate loves how you drew the rifle to be realistic.

I imagine a side arc somewhere with my white wolf coming in with an Evac team and pulling him out due to some situation and he get's to go back to his loving girl.

Very nice bit of work.

I like the use of the varied color palette, and with the huge contrast between the scenes that you suggested with only a few details. Unfortunately, I can sympathize with the poor guy lately.
