People who make dream art: how close are your drawings, paintings etc. to what you actually saw in tbe dream? Do you fix things up to make them look more like they are in reality than they were in the dream?
For the normal dream challenge, i’ve made drawings that are close to what I really saw. But I find dreams to be harder to draw than real objects:
- objects can change how they look if i look away and turn back again. There is no single answer to the question of what the object looked like
- for real objects, i often draw shadows to show the 3D shape. It is not clear to me that my dreams have proper lighting and shadows
- sometimes, i think the dream object was geometrically impossible (like in Escher prints)
- my dreams are often in greyscale, or non-natural colours
