Nightmare by jerry8448 Nightmare by jerry8448
~o~ Nightmare ~o~

Full view please

This doesn't really fit the season. Sorry about that :D

I came up with the idea last night. The picture makes more sense if you know one of my older pics called "dreaming", so take a look if you haven't seen it yet ;)



Back when I was working on my Magic Gateway series I painted the dark version first and then had to create a lighter version. This time around I challenged myself to turn a light, happy picture into a gloomy, frightening one. It was definitely fun to do...^^ And on a side note: This is probably my darkest picture so far. Not sure whether that's a good sign... :P

Thanks for looking,
~Jerry

Murr, I like both!

But the nightmare one suits my mindset - especially whilst my development on an Alice In Wonderland fan game for a specific MMO. xD

Nightmare version is maybe better than dreaming

Paired with 'Dreaming', this makes for such an awesome piece!
(Not that, as standalones, they're bad at all!)
You have such great ideas in your landscapes. Well done :meow:

Wonderful contrast to the "Dreaming" - picture. The troubled water is beautifully done.

This is in such sharp contrast to the previous picture. It’s so dark and eerie but I think I like it better than the other one. Mostly it makes me wonder what could have happened here since the last visit. How long has it been? Why is everything blackened? Is it even safe here anymore? There seems to have been a devastating fire that was recently put out, since the trees are still smoking. Maybe the cold snowy wind extinguished it. Even though it looks like the environment is destroyed, it still seems to have benevolence towards the dreamer, using the signs to warn him or her away. You do really great and detailed work on all your drawings, but I think this one is my personal favorite. The grayish, black, and red color scheme is one I particularly love. It also reminds me of Sweeney Todd, both visually and thematically. The thorny vines and strangely glowing red stuff that’s probably blood really adds to the overall feeling of fear and foreboding. It also seems like the lamp from before has been replaced with a cage with blood dripping from it. Very striking and beautiful drawing.

A lot of people didn't like this painting when I first uploaded it. I guess they felt like had destroyed the other picture with it, which never was my intention. I just wanted to show dream and nightmare versions of the same place, nothing more. I'm glad you like both pictures the way they are :)

Na wenn man sich die Schilder durchliest braucht man ja keine Angst mehr zu haben :)
Aber leider kann man ja meistens nicht auf Kommando aus einem Alptraum aufwachen.

This made me deeply sad. I have been in love with "Dreaming" for over two years now. It is a beautiful piece, but seeing something that has been such a beautiful and meaningful image to me turned so terrible really disquieted me.

My pictures are usually drawn quite sloppily and I have little interest in making them look real in any way, but the one thing I do try to do throughout my art is capture certain feelings, emotions or atmospheres. - The happy ones, but also the sad. Life is a grand mixture of wonderful and horrible things and I truly believe the former couldn't exist without the latter ;)

both versions are beautiful examples of surrealism, and it is absolutely amazing how such a bright and whimsical image can be turned into one of emptiness and dread
