You capture how sleep paralysis feels like very well, and I likes the aesthetics! :)

I've experienced sleep paralysis myself and it's a rather disturbing experience. At times it feel real. I can see and feel something happening. Sometimes I feel pain too. The creatures in my sleep paralysis aren't of the nice kind. What they're doing is definitively NSFW.

Experienced this myself on three occasions definitely isn't a pleasant experience

I love this! I've had sleep paralysis for ten years & seeing this really captures the emotion. The stiffness in her body & her eyes totally brings me back. Beautiful!

Fantastic concept and execution. Pretty damn accurate for those with the condition. And awesome illustration none the less. I really love it. It's like the soul leaving the body
or a demon haunting her in her sleep.

Gorgeous!

All these little details on her arms, that eerie shadowy thing/creature (its glowy eyes… are kind of terrifying). I also like very much the way you color all your drawings. It adds a lot to the atmosphere I think :)
