I'm sorry it's taking me so long to update my gallery. I'm shocked (positively shocked) to see that each time I upload one of my comics I get lots of favourites and even new watchers, and I wanted to thank everyone properly before I posted new strips. And no, I'm not being presumptuous or at least I wouldn't like to sound like that, more the opposite. I mean, not only I've been taught since childhood that giving thanks is important, but also it gives me a chance to have a look at that person gallery, to know them better, and sometimes to admire myself and think "Why this person, whose works are amazing, is favouriting one of my strips???". Sometimes, there's even people whose work I admired before I started uploading drawings so it is like "wow!!!". And it also helps me to meet people and even friends. I've made some wonderful friends since I'm actively in Deviant art and I'm grateful for that. Thanks to all of you, and if I didn't thank you please believe me if I say it's been a mistake and not on purpose.

Said this, and before I start talking about my childhood and how nice it was to draw for my schoolmates (I should save this for my real life blog, which I have abandoned since I'm hooked to Dragon age XD), the real reason I wrote a new entry of this journal is because I've had a dream I want to share.

Let me explain. I love dreams, night dreams I mean. I love sleeping (I'm a lazy person, I know, and you must have already realized it if you see my unfinished drawings) and I love having beautiful dreams. If they have some sense, I like to remember and think about them. And today I had a Dragon age dream.

So far, I only have had two Dragon Age dreams and this is good. Two dreams in two months means I'm not insanely obsessed, LOL! Of course I'm not counting mornings I wake up having the feeling I've spent the night killing darkspawn. Those are nonsense dreams and they don't count. But today I had one of those dreams I like to treasure, and I would like to be good at serious drawing to draw something about it. I was my character, Yllwenn, and no, no naughty scenes. Zevran was not even in the story. I was in the Alienage, which looked peaceful and prosperous (under Shianni's rule I hope), and I was lying on a bench tallking to the Elder, Valendrian. I was talking about how worried I was because of the Drakspawn taint, and all the years of life I would be missing because of that. In my dream I knew I only had 10 years left, I don't know why, and I was very sad because of that. Valendrian just gave some confort words, but the feeling was... so special...

Maybe the dream sounds stupid, but I felt nice when I woke up. It had been a beautiful moment. And then I realized (once awaken) that poor Valendrian had been sold as a Slave to Tevinter in my playthrough (if you're a city elf you only rescue Cyrion, not Valendrian). And then I realized I had to change my character's goal after defeating the Archdemon. I've always thought she would have gone to Antiva with Zevran to defeat the Crows, as some of the Bioware works suggest. But now I know what she surely did. She went to Tevinter to free her friends. Sounds nice. And a goal she would be proud of. With Zevran by her side of course.

I wish I could make serious comics to write that story. Oh, well, it will continue in my imagination...

Thanks to read until here :) I know it must have been boring for most of you...

Thank you so very much!!! But I'm no good at serious comic and I think my style doesn't fit a long, serious story like this one would be... But maybe step by step I'll do some strips to get to that point... your approvation encourages me so much!!!

And I'm not humble, I'm just objective!!! :) It's easy to feel awesome when people is awesome around you! Thank you so much!!!

You're adorable and I love your humble attitude, more people should be like that. BTW I love your comics, they are funny and well illustrated.

Thank you so very much! I don't try to be humble but I try to be objective. I mean, I can't compare myself to other awesome people who are posting their works in Deviant art and yet I get such an enthusiastic response! I can't feel but flattered :blush:

Thanks for loving my comics. You can't imagine how well those comments make me feel!

Uff, no eres la única que sueña con DAO...
La verdad, es una pena no acordarse después de los sueños. Yo suelo recordar los macabros... >.<
SoniaCarreras Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Yo creo que los macabros simplemente los borro del disco duro cerebral XD. No sé, hay dias que tengo la sensación de haber soñado que mataba engendros tenebrosos, pero es como borroso. Sin embargo este sueño y otro que tuve, simple pero muy bonito también, los guardo como tesoros en mi mente. Vaya, y otros sueños de otros temas, como digo me encanta soñar y yo creo que me he entrenado para recordar los sueños.

Lo que pasa es que luego veo los dibujos que hacen algunos/as por aquí en DA y pienso "Jo, si dibujase como ellos, podría dibujar esta escena tan bonita que he soñado, y compartirla de verdad". Pero en fin, las describiré con palabras, que es lo único que me queda...

That dream sounds more like a nightmare!

I think I've trained myself to remember dreams. It's also easier for me to remember dreams if I don't have to wake up early for work, because when I wake up early I rush to do things and have no time to remember them. The trick is, when you wake up, try to remember the dream and remember it a couple of times, then it gets attached to your mind. Or write it. If not, it rushes and dissapears. And it's a pity because some of them are wonderful.

I've traveled amazing lands in my dreams, places I'd love to be able to draw or to share with others somehow. Sometimes I think they must exist somewhere. And I love getting on someone else's shoes in my dreams like this time.

Thanks to comment, by the way!
