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.
