Morpheus by nighty Morpheus by nighty
Based on a description I found about Morpheus the greek god of dreams:

The Greek god of dreams. He lies on a ebony bed in a dim-lit cave, surrounded by poppy. He appears to humans in their dreams in the shape of a man. He is responsible for shaping dreams, or giving shape to the beings which inhabit dreams. Morpheus, known from Ovid's Metamorphoses, plays no part in Greek mythology. His name means "he who forms, or molds" (from the Greek morphe), and is mentioned as the son of Hypnos, the god of sleep. 'Morphine' is derived from his name.

The background of this image is absolutely gorgeous. As someone else said though, the lighting on the sleeping figure doesn't match the lighting with the rest of the artwork. His light is coming from the mid left, the light on the female figure is coming from the bottom right (which is odd since the white around her seems like it should be producing light as well), and the flowers are lit from the top. If all the lighting matched this piece would lose the slight awkwardness in the center and be truly stunning.

i love all the pieces you have bought together to create this one. it is indeed spectacular. The room you sketched is incredible in perception...all the angels seem perfectly placed. the lighting is wonderful on the centre dias and the poppies are incredible...are they a tube or a brush, or did you draw them in.
:clap: amazing work as always my friend :hug: :love:
