These Dreams was a gallery originally published in 2016 so these works are, artistically, a bit dated in my opinion. This gallery and my entire blog was deleted by Word Press (.com) in 2018 without notice or opportunity to make corrections for violating community standards – my digital art was deemed too sexually explicit. I argued that my art was sexually “implicit” since my works implied certain activities but never actually showed sexual penetration or hands/mouth touching genitalia. There was no appeal process and the decision was final.

Fortunately, I was able to export my content and create a self-hosted blog through WordPress (.org). This has not been an easy journey, and I still struggle engaging with many of you because my comments go into your spam and many of my replies don’t show up in your notifications. On the positive side, I do enjoy the freedom to create more provocative images but still try to not cross the line between implicit and explicit sexual images.

I’m bringing this gallery out of my private archives because it is part of my journey and represents the first time I created art based on my dreams.

Fallen Angel 3-1 v2

My art started out as a way to recreate memories from my past and to use those creations to illustrate my stories. Over time, I have come to enjoy this aspect of the creative process as much as I do the writing. Writing a story, adding art, and then later creating a music video with this art that captures the spirit of the story is where it all comes together for me and resonates most deeply.

My artwork falls within the realm of digital art realm in a subcategory known as 3D Art. The term “3D” isn’t directed at the output. Rather, it means that I am working within a 3D platform. For all of the scenes I create, I can move within this platform to render images from multiple angles (front, back, top, bottom, etc.). Tools of the trade: I use DAZ Studio as my 3D platform, Iray as my preferred render engine, and then finish off my work in Photoshop and/or Lightroom.

I periodically feature themed galleries and this was my first from years ago. Hope you enjoy these lingering dreams ~ Michael

    1. You are very kind, thank you. I’m a long way from mastery but trying to get there.😊

      1. You’re better than me. I tried DAZ a long time ago and I gave up because I haden’t much time to learn how it works. It’s a great software.

  3. These are incredible. I need a new book cover if you are up for the challenge. Credits will be referenced x

    1. Thank you so much for this kind feedback. I would be honored to give the book cover a shot. Projects are always fun. Of course, if you don’t like it…no worries.☺️

  4. Amazing artwork. I used to do that stuff but stopped a while back

    1. Thank you ☺️ Very cool that you used to do this. I’ve been discouraged along the way but remained persistent and tried to learn from others. I have a ways to go but feel like I can at least create what I see in my mind.

      1. I’m better at writing it at this point in time honestly. Lol. But you seem to be pretty good at it.

    1. Wow, I really appreciate this feedback.☺️I don’t always succeed but I do try to capture a bit of sensual and erotic light in these pieces. Thank you for noticing ✨😘

  6. I find writing, in a way, to be liberating.

    1. Your writing is excellent and always a pleasure to read.🔥I hope that I didn’t imply that I don’t like writing too. I love writing too.

      1. Not at all. Writing and art go hand-in-hand, I think.

  7. Your work is exquisite. It astounds me how gorgeous a computer image is. How sensual and hot…. thank you for saying they can be send. 😍 I’d always link you. 😈😍😈

    1. Thank you, beautiful girl 😘

      1. You’re always welcome sexy😘

  9. Fantastic work, if I’m brave enough, I might attempt to share a similar theme. What inspired you to choose this theme?

    1. Thank you so much, you are a talented artist and your comment means a lot. I write a lot about my sexuality and relationships with women…to include the psychology and spirituality drivers. I suppose these particular works capture some of the different ways I see and experience women. They were created independent of for other pieces I am writing but I saw a theme emerging for a gallery. Glad you enjoyed and hope you take us inside your dreams… 🌌✨

      1. https://vykantor.com/2018/03/18/sunshine-blogger-award/ Check it out bro, I have given you an award.

        Your blog is quite spicy but I like it

        1. Spicy…I like that description.☺️Hope you’ll return.

  12. These are all so beautiful! I especially love Carnival. Her crystal green eyes behind the leopard print mask are so cat-like. Really awesome. And you may be better at make-up than a lot of women! 😛

    1. Cat-like…like a woman on the prowl 🐆 I wonder what she might be hunting for…🔥 As for the makeup, I do like it😛Of course, I have no idea how to do it in real life😄 Thanks stopping by Lola, hope you will return.

      1. I’m sure I know what she might be hunting for… I’ve seen the many naked renderings of you on here 😛😈 I bet if a woman let you, you’d be the best makeup artist!
        Will read some more, definitely! I like it here. 😉

        1. Mmmm, you ARE naughty☺️ I only have a few (ahem, a few dozen) naked renders 😛I have a special instrument for applying makeup. 😉
