Showcase Sunday // I painted my nightmare!: Monster bluejay rituals

in art •  6 months ago 

While browsing some of my art for this showcase sunday post I came across this dream/nightmare art that I didn't even remember making, It was originally posted on June 24 2017 here which is very shortly after I joined.

Dream text

I recently woke up feeling uneasy because of a nightmare. I try to recall my dreams as soon as I wake up because if I don't they pretty much slip away in an instant. This one stuck with me though.

I live on the third floor of a building. In my dream I looked out the window and saw a swarm of massive blue Jay's with crane-like wings and legs. It looked so spooky my heart stated beating. I heard a loud thud on my back balcony and rushed in terror to see what it was. I saw one of these birds on my balcony, it was taller than me. I looked down and saw a body face down and came to the realization that they were attacking people.

That's when I woke up

This image stuck with me all day so I had to try to get it out of my system.

The result was these two pieces.

At the time I created these I didn't have my desktop graphics monitor, I was using a samsung tablet with a shoddy little pen. Never the less I'm pretty proud of some of the art I managed to create on that tiny little screen and it's a lot of fun to take a walk down memory lane reading my old posts!

Happy Sunday :)

What a weird ass dream - hectic.

Yeah it was creepy af, I had some more weird dreams this week (that I managed to remember), in one I spoke to a massive red and white dog 0_0

Nice, maybe they were Bluejay Dinosaurs ;)

Hehe technically birds are dinosaurs :)

incredible your story, you actually shaped the atmosphere of the environment in the drawing, it looks something southern, the birds look terrifying and great, good work I look great

I wish I could remember more of my dreams, they are great art inspiration! Sometimes I can only recall a wisp but it's too vague to recreate, it's very frustrating!
