Sarah Williams had only dreamt one dream since the age of fifteen. Oh, she was sure there were other midnight forays of mischief and whimsy, but she never remembered them.

For all intents and purposes, there was just the one dream, and the time for it had come again.

It always felt so lucid; she sometimes wondered if she were truly asleep and not actually lost to that strange Otherland.

The hazy dreamscape where she spent so many hours in contemplation never changed.

That is, until now.

This time, for the first time since the vague reality of her teenage misadventure, she was not alone.

Before her dream-self could initiate fight or flight, the interloper spoke.

"Miss Williams, your vacillations long ago grew wearisome, and time grows shorter still. I make you one final proposal: your dreams or mine?"
---
I. Um. Yes. Aside from that bit above, there isn't an actual story that goes along with this. It just sort of… happened. Knowing my brain though, it'll come up with a story sooner or later and attack me with it. That's what always seems to happen.

Also, I draw Jareth's nose different every single time. Sometimes more Bowie, sometimes less Bowie. This time is less Bowie. :shrug:

Materials: Copic Multiliners, Opaque White, and Markers; Reeves Gouache; instant coffee on smooth bristol (As a general rule, don't do it. Your paper will warp, and you will cry. And then there will be ironing involved. I just didn't have watercolor paper big enough and knew what I was getting into from the start.)

i cant even begin to catalog everything about this picture that's breathtaking, from the coffee background to the highlights on his hair and feathers, to the gorgeous color scheme. but the thing that got me to favorite this picture was the sheer cloak. how on earth did you make it look so realistic?

also, unrelated, but necessary from one fangirl to another, gorgeous thighs on that goblin king, eh?

Thank you! :iconiloveyouplz:

The translucent part is actually pretty easy to pull off! I used a combination of white gouache and Copic Opaque White (You can use acrylic paint for this too). For the more see through parts, I diluted the paint with water and smudged/wiped away areas while it was still wet.

:faint: Oooooh dear. I do believe your art has moved me to tears. Yep. Tears. Because good lord it is excellent. GAH. I saw the WIPs on Tumblr and was very excited for the finished product. Needless to say, I was not disappointed! :clap:

:blush: Thank you! You're too kind!

I am rather pleased with how this came out and the most happy I've been about a finished work in a while, but my inner critic is already ripping parts of it to shreds. ^^; I can't wait to pick up a frame for it this weekend, though!

Your inner critic needs to settle down! Because it is lovely. There's honestly not a single piece of your work that I don't absolutely adore. :3

GAH! Lucky you, you get to have your art up on the wall! I, on the other hand, must content myself with staring in awe and adoration at the computer screen. :love:

Thank you. c: I don't think it's really bad, it's just a mentality of: 'Whoa, look at that part right there. It could be better. Try harder next time.' Like being pleased overall, but there's always something that sticks out to me as being off? :shrug:

If it makes you feel any better, I'm a bit near-sighted, so unless I'm wearing my glasses (Which I usually am not around the house.), it's more like, "hey, those vaguely human shaped blobs look pretty smoothly and nicely colored from back here." xD

Ahh yes. I've had that happen to me quite a bit with fanfictions I've written. I get it all done and then I look at it all like "Nope, you should have been a better scene than that."

x'D They look fine, I assure you.

>>; Oh don't get me started on writing. Rereading my own writing after I've finished/posted it makes me cringe. Which is a problem when it comes to chapter fanfics where I need to go back and make sure I did in fact write what I thought I wrote before.

But yeah, I think lots of writers and artists are that way: seeing flaws in their own work that aren't apparent or present to others.

Extremely fine brush work and highlights and flowy fabrics and transparencies...

The accompanying ficlet really sells it, too. I really like how it is itself sort of tenuous in its description and lack-of-story, then comes Jareth's long circombobulated phrase that ends on a sharp forceful stinger and that one word/twist that is very, very meaningful.

Your stuff is consistently super high-quality, yo.

Eeek! :blush: Thank you! I'm always aiming to get better though, even though I mostly just doodle for myself.

Superfine 15/0 and 10/0 brushes are amongst the best things ever invented in my opinion. *nod, nod*

(GND is one of my favorite things ever in the Universe, by the way!)

Thank you, I had a version of myself singing within you, and I recorded as the world falls down, but due to recent changes in youtube I've deleted all my covers from there and I left only my original music, looking around how to share my labyrinth tributes again. For the rest of my music you can have a look here if you're curious. I read you almost everyday at tumblr. ;-) [link]
