Who doesn't look up at the starlit skies wishing for their dreams to come true?

This is a very nice piece of work you have here.
It has a nice balance and composition, and the colors you used are very eye catching.
The bright, yellow stars create a striking contrast against the purple sky.
Now, the color you chose for the sky is something I find very interesting. Usually you would think of the night sky being the usual dark blue, so that you would use a shade of red-violet instead is very original and adds a refreshing uniqueness to a theme that has been used many times before.

The only thing that didn't quite worked for me was the smoke-looking swirls in front of the moon, maybe if they were a bit more solid, but well that's a matter of preference I think.

Something else I would like to comment about is the overall message the piece portrays. When I look at the picture and the word "Dreaming" I can't only think about the importance of having dreams and goals and "reaching to the stars" to fulfill them. I think you've done a wonderful job at communicating such an important message. Now whether that is the message you were trying to convey I can't actually be sure, but that is what I see in this.

Well, thank you for sharing such beautiful and insightful works with us. Keep up the good work and best wishes to you.

This is lovely use of Illustrator right here. I love the soft glow around the moon, and the color combination of the purple sky and the golden stars and moon. The hair as the only black in the picture draws the eye to it, and having the clothes and earth both green ties them together and separates them from the space around them.

Very nice. :aww: I like the message, too.

Congrats on your Seniority, I got to your page through the news article and decided to browse around a bit. =) You're great with Illustrator, very bold vibrant graphic designs on your page.
