Sleep Sound by QuinneCL Sleep Sound by QuinneCL
I'm not generally much for these sorts of contests, but being a fan, this one seemed worth a shot!

Hopefully it's clear to some degree, but when I was a kid, I used to be afraid that an alternate, "bad" version of me would try to swap places; this is a semi-interpretive go at illustrating that.

Thank you for considering my entry, I appreciate your time!

Reminds me of a story I just read. The dad goes to tuck his frightened son in and the son asks him to look under the bed for monsters. The dad thinks its silly, but does it anyways for him. He goes to look under the bed and finds his son under the bed. He says to his dad in a scared voice, "dad, there's something in my bed."

Holy crap! I used to have a dream where a demonic almost ghost-like twin of myself would whisper in my ear, repeating everything I sadi; mocking me in a way. Creepy.

I was also afraid of something like that~! But I've always thought of her being in the mirror or anything that can reflect my face clearly, so if I see my clear reflection in something I am instantly scared that maybe my reflection will pull me in and take my place... and I will be stuck in an unknown world...

Wow! I love this so much!
I assumed that it was just a good rendition of insomnia, but reading your artist comment: O= !
I had exactly the same fear as a kid! I have bipolar, so I often had mood swings when younger, but I was so out of control I actually believed I had some form of spilt-personality(I also suffer with short-term memory-loss; made my childish assumption even more scary! What was there to stop my alter me taking over? was the biggest fear in my mind as a child; seems like a silly irrational fear now, but really wasn't at the time.)
I used to draw pictures similar to this one of yours, when younger, and as my way of dealing with my fear I made a character.
Perhaps I should hunt her out.. I haven't actually shared any of my traditional media on here; just some few photos, so perhaps..
Guillermo del Toro ftw, by the way. He picked your entry; it all over facebook; you gonna be famous! O:

I love the dreamy art nouveau tendrils/ slumberwisps encapsulating the two, and the fact that they look like a reflection to each other(the upper char reminds me awesomely of a hobbit, tho xD ), the beautiful melty-dreamwake effect you've used on the bedclothes; the subtle metaphorical 'monster under your bed' feel you have captured perfectly! (=
Please don't ever stop producing your work. x3 It's too beautifully lovely to keep from the world! x
and the fact that they look like a reflection to each other

Oh, we have a lot in common! Yours sounds more severe than mine, but it's interesting that similar personality traits probably resulted in similar fears-- I'd be really interested in seeing your interpretation of that idea!

Is this all over Facebook? I'm still... I'm still kind of dealing with just the influx of dA stuff, ahaha.

Thank you! I really love nouveau, so it's nice to get the comparison (and... there is definitely some hobbit influence in there, aha). Thank you so much for all the niceness; I'll keep making stuff until I croak!

I'm not sure if you've read the Tamir Triad by Lynn Flewelling, but this reminds me of the main characters a little. It's worth a read, in any case :)

Absolutely fantastic :)

Great job and congratulations! I wonder, were you going for a subtle Yin-Yang motif with the swirling "smoke" in the background and overall flow of the image? If not, it's a wonderful coincidence considering the subject.

Also, perhaps this has already been mentioned somewhere in the comments, but if you've never seen the film Mirrormask you should make a point in doing so. It features a character being replaced by a dark/opposite version of themselves after going to sleep, exploring a beautifully realized dreamworld, of sorts, deals with some thought provoking ideas, is full of symbolism, written by Neil Gaiman... I mean, I imagine everyone on DA has seen this film (if there's anywhere that it would be fully appreciated, it's here), but just in case you haven't, you're in for a treat. :nod:
