Lord of Nightmares by Dianae Lord of Nightmares by Dianae
:star:Edited : I changed the color scheme and added a watermark. Too many art thefts :( :star:

Each night, he comes on Earth. He comes, following the nightmares way through the stars. Nightmares are there, waiting in the fog of this dark road. They try to reach his hands. He'll take one of them, the others will have to try again each following night.

Just a quick story :)

I've done it with no idea of what I would do at first, it was just a bad quick sketch that has become a painting. It was the first time I was painting spacescapes, it's very hard to do but I'm quite pleased with the result
No refs used here, I've only taken a look at my left hand when I was drawing (then flipped it horizontally.... lazy me!)
I hope you'll like it, it has been hard to paint but it was interesting since it's the first time I was doing something like that
If you think that some parts could be improved, please tell me, I would like to fix the flaws. All crits are very very welcome!

Photoshop CS and a wacom intuos 3A4, approx 40 hours.

Thanks for viewing!!!

This has been my all-time favorite piece of art ever, since I first saw it (in 2006, I'm fairly certain).

Remarkable work, Diane! Love the color choices. Your Lord reminds me of the Elric Saga by Michael Moorcock... it's how I imagined the saga character would appear.

I don't think he is said so much as incredebily lonely, to be surrounded by nought but nightmares must be a lonely existance.
