great picture and nice design for a nightmare creature!

the poem on her wall - I can't get rid of the feeling that I know it, but can't remember. Do you still know the whole poem?

It's an evening bed side prayer. (you might have heard it in a number of films) Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep, and if I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.

Something of this picture (+ the provocative backstory) just screams the name "Slaanesh" ^^

It is absolutely remarkable! You always capture the light and details so perfectly, even when you do monsters I've never even dreamed of, your skill makes them come so very much alive to me.

HOW did you do this?????

he he jaa :D Särskilt liksom den slickande tungan får mig att tänka på Slaanesh-demoner. ^^

Du borde göra en Keeper of secrets ;)
Dom är ju kända för att vara så vidrigt oheligt sensuella att ingen kan se på dom utan att typ fantisera om sina mest skamliga begär ^^ ..

Kalla mig tokig, men jag tror att du, med din fantastiska förmåga, skulle kunna måla den så pass levande som ingen annan nånsin har gjort. :D

Tänk tanken iallafall ;)

..wow, blir nästan rädd inför tanken nu, ha ha ^^

i think what you portrayed is in fact a real creature... who hasn't seen things like this in a dream, or as they are drifting away to sleep... its a whole different dimension. Even if it is just constructs of the mind, so is waking life... so either you look at everything as real, or everything as fake.

I think that you are right in the sense that everything that can affect emotions,thoughts and beviour is real on some level. We have REAL dreams and we have REAL hallucinations. Though some "levels" of reality are more stable than others, some are more oftenly reacurring, and some are easier to "wake up" from than other. So, in my mind there is Ultimate Reality, and there are various levels of "illusion" in which to experience ones life. Most human beings, including myself, are dressed in layer upon layer of veils that makes us blind to Ulitmate Reality. I'd say it is time to wake up.
