Inspired By Dali Painting by m0rpheus Inspired By Dali Painting by m0rpheus
This is a piece I did long ago that I had decided not to post until now. It's supposed to be a real life inspired-by replica of Dalí's "Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bumblebee around a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening" painting. (Talk about awkwardly long titles, lol. I guess it's a good thing Dalí's not a deviant, or he'd be really angered when he found out his deviation title went over the title char limit. I bet that as revenge, he'd make a painting of a melting yellow alien being probed with a knife or something.)

Due mostly to lack of time, I had to have some artistic license with this thing and not create the two tigers coming out the fish's mouth, although I'm confident I could have created them if I had had the time. (I had a deadline to hand this in for Art at school, you see. The deadline wasn't too far away and I couldn't possibly complete two tigers within the given time.)

The blueish bg is a mix of acryllics. I had some help with the mountains, but the rest of the bluish crap was painted by me.

The elephant is made of plasticine on a wire skeleton. I will post a close-up of it eventually. It was my first time modelling properly. It came out quite well, despite the fact the elephant doesn't have much detail.

The fish is made of wire, foil, and some sea shells for the fins. Here's a close-up.

The woman is wire and foil, and two shells. Here's a close-up.

What do you think?

Thanks! I was given a hand for the blue bg by my art teacher. I did most of the blue, and she did most of the mountains, hehe.

i think this is a great idea. what did you get for it in your art school? well done.

It's not an art school, it's just the subject "Art", which is one of many at my school. I got full marks in "Art" for all my work this last year. ;)

I like your interpretation of the original and the way you portrayed it here
