Artwork Description

Where do nightmares come from? Are they figments of our imagination, or physical beings that exist in our world? These creatures come out at night, and feed upon our dreams. By doing so, they sustain themselves, but also twist our peaceful dreams into frightening visions that terrorize our sleep.

This creature actually exists in lore if that's a child! It's known as a Striga which is a which or vamipric creature that feeds upon the souls of children as they sleep.

J'admire beaucoup, le style plait beaucoup et le le thème est assez contemplatif. Le coup graphique/feutre/crayonné... est très agréablement réussi. Excellente suite

Guest's picture

That looks like a supernatural episope with the creatures that pray upon sleeping kids and steal their "life force"

Your pictures are amazing! It doesn't matter how many times I view them, I always see a new aspect I didn't see before. Can stare at them for ages too, truly enchanting. Kudos indeed!

Not sure but I think the fact that this picture does nothing in the way of disturbing me, just entices me should be cause for concern?

I love them. and i'm getting more of your art as soon as i get money. honestly, it's because of you that i got into art. a little over a year ago i saw your stuff for the first time, and then i decided to join the art class in my school. and now it's pretty much my passion. Love your art! Laughing out loud

That is awesome. It reminds me of my dreams except it looks better, and I can make it go away.

I have submitted about 12-15 pieces and only these have been juried as good enough for epilogue. You can see more of my work at my personal website, www.aradani.com. Also, summer time is my busiest time of year, traveling and selling my artwork, so all of my new pieces get finished in the winter. I should have more soon in the next few months.

Well, I just got home from Dragon*Con, and while Nightmare may not have sold, it does have another ribbon hanging from its frame, Dragon*Con First Place Amateur. It also won Best 2-D Amateur. This was the first piece that I have ever done in the horror genre, and I guess the consensus is that I should continue doing similar genre pieces.

This is a real peace or horror, and art. A great drawing.

Guest's picture

nightmares come from the part of your brain you don't use during the day. so you are your nightmare.

Guest's picture

fantastic scene! i love the view, the details and the schadow on the wall.

Guest's picture

I like this pic. It sort of reminds me of the grudge, the way the cape sort of dissolves into the air.I like the detail, too.
