Nightmare by kalessaradan Nightmare by kalessaradan
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.

Prints of Nightmare are available on my personal website, [link] . I have three sizes available, 8.5X11, 11X14, or a full size, signed numbered version that is 18X24.

Please email me with any questions that my gallery doesn't answer, kaless@gmail.com

beautiful work ! I love it ! . I think you're right the dreams generally come out of our real live in addition to our unconscious minds and this is very effective . That remember me by Albert Einstein !

*A nightmare arrives in my room looking for fresh dreams* *notices my dreams practically seeping from my head* 'What a great little dreamer we have here, dreams of vast otherly worlds and unreal cities... all mine now' *It is about to start feeding when it feels something clench around its throat*

The Nightmare: And what, do you think you're doing? this is my brother's host *looks at me* but it's not the right one. but all the same I don't like it when beings think they can just attack my enemies without my say so. *he can feel the nightmarish being starting to shake from fear* oh so you DO know who I am. then you know that you will not be leaving this room tonight.

*the scene goes black as what happened to the being known as a nightmare was too graphic for the younglings. but all other nightmares now knew, never go into that house. because in that house is the reason for darkness and nightmares. in that house is something that could bring down gods. in that house was a being that even the nightmares feared. and to think that all of this was made by 13-year old boy*

Love the picture but I couldn't resist. one of my OCs would laugh at this thing should it try to take my dreams. besides that's his job.

one night, when I wake up and realize something like that above my bed, staring in some empty eye sockets, I'll remember this moment and think: Damn, that was a pretty freaking nightmare-picture.
