Sakura (Creeped) [V1] Finally time to catch up...omfg I just skipped like a lot of your drawings. I can't really comment on the ghilbi ones. I love Ghibli, you love Ghibli, we all Ghibli fans! Thus they are awesome! This may lack, brain still weird cause Grandad passed away.

Sasami Squad C (Clapping) [V11] Let's begin in the magical land of flame farting unicorns! Alucard Uh Oh If I was easily scared this drawing would do it. The creatures/monsters are have that creepy atmosphere yet still in a cartoonish way, so people won't actually get nightmares from them.  Not showing the girls face was a splendid choice. It conveys so much more emotion then seeing her scared out of her mind.  How some of the tentacles? can be observed as extensions of her hair really add another thought to this. Not only does it relate to those horrible thoughts before you fall asleep then you can't because you just scared or paranoid yourself silly, but it also shows a correlation between how WE start those thoughts. WE are in control of them and WE put that paranoia into our own minds. The relationship emphasizes the aspect of the horrors coming from ourselves, not from another source. The placing of her foot, the one looking like it is being eaten by one of the creatures, feels like she is being pulled deeper into the mass array of haunted beings. A great metaphor of our own pulling down into the depths of our own minds and what dark things dwell there. Lovely piece, a tad eerie, but that is apart of the aesthetic and meaning.  

Kanata Futaki (If... If... I don't...) [V11] my sprained wrist hurts from typing D: I have like more comments for you to go!

Wow, this is kinda how I imagine if my depression and anxiety could be summed up in one image. Beautiful drawing
Wicked-Faerie Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2014  Student Writer
The title makes me think of in the dark of the night people will find her, find her... the first line from Rasputin's In the Dark of the Night song from Anastasia. In this her monsters find her. This drawing depicts her blocking out the fear. I hope she will conquer fear, but I do not know. I do like her being the central figure and I feel if she would just open her eyes she could defeat all her monsters. ^_^ <3 
threem43 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
have you played the game "catherine" at anytime? bc this drawing reminded my of it in a way!
GraphiteHeart Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
i've had those nights too. 
KatNoctua Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2014
It's so true. When we were children our imagination have made us fear the dark. Now, it's our own thoughts and fears, and the worst is, that everything is real.
Great work witch monsters (they're really creepy) and her pose.
Ganimdy Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2014

AI-LOCKETT Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2014   Writer
I love this for so many reasons. But my first thought was this must be what Kagome from Inuyasha nightmares look like.
JACKATTACK173 Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
