Nightmare Creature: Aserinmus by noctem-tenebris Nightmare Creature: Aserinmus by noctem-tenebris
This is one of the beasts in the recurring nightmare I have had since I was 5 years of age. This is the beast Aserinmus, A beast that seeks out the fear in ones being using its manipulative powers of shadows and illusion to to heighten one's fear as a game. It wins by killing it's victim of fright and then savors its meal.
This was like a 20 minute pencil sketch that I scanned..yes I figured I'd find a place for my sketches.

Aserinmus species and artwork are to me :iconthirteenth-sanction:

Well this is a very nice pen sketch I think, I like the details this creature has in the body. It's also interesting to see how you must've seen em' up close as you have the details on his neck done quite well. It's very interesting, good work!

Some of the best creatures come from our minds while we are asleep. =D Do you still have that nightmare? If so, does it bother you, or have you become used to it?

I've had it since I was 5 years of age. I am starting to draw more of the beasts and stuff from it. I still have it but to me at this point the nightmare itself has gotten me so used to fear and such that there is not much in this real world that does scare me anymore. I've died in the nightmare countless times, suffered severe injuries that I wake up with every pain I felt in the dream itself. no visible wounds or anything just the pain.

Oh, wow. At least you are used it and, even better, it has made you mostly fearless. Still, waking up with the pain isn't fun.

Most of my dreams involve something burning or me getting hurt or killed, and I have no idea why since the thought of dying does not scare me in real life. LOL They used to bother me so much -- torturing me all the next day -- but I am so used to them now that not having them almost seems odd. And sometimes those dreams give me inspiration...maybe as some twisted form of therapy. :XD:

I really like the design, and the way he is posed, like he's ready to attack!

The head is small compared to the body though, I'll point that out in a comment because I suck at critique haha.

lol all good, yeah it is small...he didn't have much of a head in the actual nightmare. Kinda wish he had had something more interesting but he was like an odd dog thing with a dragonic skull.
