This is beautiful!
I love the creatures around the man/god, especially the octopuses and the blue butterfly on the top. They are ethereal and adorable.

Unbelievable...

I have to say the way you maintain symmetrical balance in the backdrop is astounding. Everything flows so well in all of your pieces, and the medium is fresh and invigorating in comparison to classical art pieces in paints, pencils and pastels.

I absolutely have to ask, do you meditate? By this I mean, do you delve into your inner-self and envision precisely what you are going to produce?

I love all your work Lak, keep inspiring!!

Yes I do meditate and try to keep a healthy spiritual life. As for what images I create, some are visions that come in meditation or dreams (this one was during a reiki session), others are planned images

Salamat (thanks) at Samuli (and until then),

I actually had this vision while undergoing a reiki session. Right after, I stood up and started drawing . . . so much for the 'relaxation' from reiki . . . especially when I finished this piece, I thought I would end up cross-eyed :)

I would say that it is ever more trying to get into peaceful mindsets to see the universe' messages as times now are more conflicting. Hence all that have been sharing lately have taken me monumental efforts to be balanced and thus these images to a very dear and deep resonances to myself

When I see your work I don't know what say another from "This is really good", "Awesome", "love, how you draw" and another phrases what usually already writing by another deviants.
I think more best comment for you if somehow who looking on your works recognise something own and open mind for some kind of knowledge.

Some people have asked what do my 'visionary' works mean, and all I can really say is "What does it mean to you?" I believe that these images come to be, and beyond my technical and aesthetic skills in rendering the images . . . these are to resonate to each viewer personally

And the mere fact it connects to some people to a deeper level than just aesthetics is what makes me happy that I have given justice to the vision

You're welcome.

I'm sorry if my answer will so short for you. But I'm thinking about what to write a lot of text about two days. But I only know: I agree with you and you right.

I think people can open mind and go up to the "new level". I believe you will be rewarded and already rewarded for given some part of the vision and discovering own "world picture" those others people.

Oh, well. I want to use another language, non-human kind, to explain all my thoughts and wishes wich I could try to say. But this is no words or other physic vision things. And for this moment I only don't know how _say_ on it.

This took me around 8 hours to draw, with breaks in between . . . That included stretching several times since my arm was aching from not drawing for three weeks

You could image the impact of this in real life, especially with the "Crown - Flora" right beside it

I had people react to it as if they were in a hallucinogenic fix
