Hello there on the last 2013 day and here is a little of inspiration to start a good new 2014 year - a creature inspired by Himalayan little known folklores and townfolks. Originally that was a sketch from my sketchbook, scanned it and I thought to do digital. But again I decided to do him in traditional media. Colored pencils a bit of copics and gouache paint.
I'd like to wish my friends, close people, fans and everybody else for a New Year which would be Year of LUCID DREAMING.
Life is like a dream. Everybody has own a dream in our every life. However, for the most of time, we are usually walking in sleep in dreams, without awarness. We let the dreamworld to control us and it's events. We feel like powerless matter drifting in the world of the antimatter and chaos. However, once we acquire lucid dreaming in our mind, we start becoming aware, don't let mindless dreamscapes to take us aimlessly through life, nightmares to haunt us and within, lucid dreaming, we are able to take our life onto a whole new level and make our life into heaven.
It's pretty much similar in real life. Lucid dreaming is the state of mind where we are becoming aware of things and ourselves.
Then next is bringing into action. The changes which we want to bring or DO SOMETHING what we care, instead to be a watcher, we need just to do. Become a sportsmen than viewer who is watching other people who are going to be successful.
And lastly, it's about habits. Those are known HABITS that block us from making our things to happen- where in the result we tend forgetting what we were supposed to do or giving up too quickly with things that we care/want to change, then we tend getting angry at ourselves for failing. Habits are codes written in our subconsciousness. To change it, we need to be stubborn, hardworking and have a lot of will to overcome our automated thinking.
Be aware. Bring things into action. Overcome your old habits.
With those skills, we are more likely able to bring these basic wishes of happiness, better health state and lots of success. This is what I want do, awake my lucid dreaming inner power
Every human is creating their own dream and reality, there is no such linear and "one" reality/truth. However, everything is bouncing back to them what they carry in their throughts, habits and beliefs. If you want to change your way of thinking, learn to think positivey, concetrate on good values and be constructive with bringing things into action, then life will automatically become better for you- you'll bring into yourself like a magnet more inspiring, good people and positive life events. That's what I wish for everyone and for myself :]
Oh also, I'm being active with stuff on my FB page, just thought to let know for some folks who have FB account! www.facebook.com/exileden
Wow that's so cool! Honestly I don't really know what exactly it means, I've had it written on paper from the traveler where he was traveling in Himalaya and meeting local people who passed that folklore. Also my apologies, perhaps my writing style didn't patch that text in your language correctly (I was swooshing in artistic style, than actual, proper way of writing to make it look more ancient and less readable). Either way, I find texts in Bengali'an alphabet are very pleasant for me.
It was about beast who protected the sacred mountain (I'll find it's name once I'll remember) in region of Annapurna mountain ranges. And in fact, in our real life, that sacred mountain does NOT allow climbers or travelers to traverse through. The villages which are surrounded with a view on that sacred mountain, villagers here somehow believe (I don't know if that's in serious way or in fantasy/for tradition) about the beast ruling in that mountain. I think it's like how humans used to believe about Yetis. If I understood correctly, I think that's local's interpretation about Yeti but in more serious/sacred way. It's said also that one, the sacred beast appears to have special design ornaments (like how I drew) were brought by the gods. That's all what I know.
Oh, that's so cool! Honestly, mainly I'm a traveler/photoreporter where I travel to many different countries, used to live in a couple and by that I'm passionate about the world, different culturies, languages, faraway places and local folks. The further from "civilized city worlds" (i.e. America, Europe) the better is! In meaning of fascination and inner-self discoveries being in new areas. I'm very anticipating to go to the East countries, including region which you are. I'm very flattered that a visitor, like you from Bangladesh has stopped here to view my works. Maybe for the next drawing, inspired by mountains of east where your language dominates, I should ask you to write a proper text and it's meaning for my design
And thank you!
