The Corrupted Dream [+speedpaint] by Sekares-Arisawa The Corrupted Dream [+speedpaint] by Sekares-Arisawa
Hello everyone <3
I know I am spamming you with art the last 2 day :'D

I had this idea in my mind while cleaning my room last week
I stared at my dream catcher and was wondering what would happened if all the bad dreams are for ever stuck in there.
Or will they break through it at one day?

So I got this idea of a corrupted dream catcher and it fits very well.
I am having bad dreams since half a year now I guess there is no space for them anymore in my dream catcher.
Everything I am dreaming is about loosing my dearest friends till to get killed in many different ways and it goes on and on.
My dreams are usually mixed with some movies I watched years ago.
recognizable are the horrific parts where I can't move or I am running in circles, till to strange monsters following me and hurting me.
The worst part of it, I cant wake up on my own.
I even saw myself dying hundreds of times in one dream
Normally you would wake up from it but I guess my mind doesn't want me to.
So I created the bad habit of avoiding to sleep which isn't healthy at all.

I am a prisoner in my own mind.

I also did a short speed paint of it
feel free to watch it

I loved the picture :)  And my son asked me what happens to dreams in the dreamcatcher.  He's a little young for the story though :P

Thank you so much!
yes that topic is a bit to difficult for a child :D
but you can say that the dream catcher is supposed to catch all dreams and only let the good ones through its center

Verdaaaammt. Das ist ja schrecklich (die Situation, nicht das Bild). Damit wünsche ich dir viel Glück Seka, sollte es noch der Fall sein. Das ist wohl der Vorteil wenn man keine Träume hat - man hat auch keine schlechten.

Um sich auf das gute zu konzentrieren, dieses Bild ist wunderbar. Es ist fantastisch gemalt, das Licht und die Figur sind traumhaft (hehe) und alles in allem bin ich mir ziemlich sicher, das das bis jetzt mein Lieblingsbild von dir ist. Der Totenkopf sieht auch echt toll aus. Du bist klasse!

Da muss ich dir recht geben
auch wenn meine Traumsituation echt schlecht ist
gewinne ich durch sie unglaublich viele Ideen für Bilder und meine Story.
Ohne meine Albträume wäre das hier auch nicht zustande gekommen xD

Ich danke dir vielmals! <3
es freut mich wirklich sehr das es dir gefällt

echt ist es das ? also ehm findest du das wirklich? ;w;

Also das Bild ist wirklich toll geworden. Die Wellen sehen spitze aus.

Hast du schon mal versucht die Filme nochmal anzuschauen?
Ich hatte auch mal Alpträume von einem Film, als ich älter war und den nochmals angeschaut habe ist das besser geworden. 
Oder aber ich bin über die Zeit einfach so krank geworden dass mich das nichtmehr stört xD

Aber einen Versuch ists wert glaub ich.

As a sufferer of chronic nightmares myself, I'm familiar with the desire to avoid sleep as long as you can. I really hope those nightmares go away soon! If you haven't done it, I might try meditation! It helped me a lot when my dreams escalated into night terrors, where you have physical reactions to the nightmares you're having. And maybe there is a way to clear a dreamcatcher? :o

I really love the composition of this work! And those colors are beautiful. It's very emotional too, in a way. All in all, it's a very powerful drawing. Amazing work!

yes I try my best to be positive about it and hope it will fade soon
my nightmares are like the reality
its really strange when you get insured in a way you never experienced in real life
but the pain feels so real
for example I dreamed that I got shot in the arm .. and hell that was such a pain I couldn't think straight.
and yes there is a way to clear a dream catcher and I need to do it soon

Thank you very much it means really a lot to me to read that people like what I did there  <3
At first I thought its to simple because I was so fast done
so I kept thinking that I missed something x'D
but in the end I guess it was a good decision to let it be how it is now

I know the feeling well. I've had several dreams where I was bleeding, and I could feel the sting of the cut and the warmth of the blood soaking through my clothes. I always wake up paranoid when I have those dreams. Sometimes I'll even just sit up really slowly out of fear that I was actually injured. 
I need to get myself a new dream catcher, since mine got lost a few years ago. I really like a lot of my dreams when they don't make me so uncomfortable

Of course! Sometimes it's best to just draw until your feelings tell you to stop XD I always worry that I've missed something in my art when I finish it quickly too

ohhh those kind of dreams are horrible
its the same when you wake up from a horrible dream and you look through your dark room
and for a sec your eyes are fooling you and let you see a dark silhouette looking at you ...
argh that scared the fucking shit out of me
I am very  paranoid I  don't like the bad feeling of someone is watching you.

don't worry i have the same problem with finding an end on a drawing :'D
and I always find a mistake when its to late and its already up on DA XD

Oooooh, I've actually had sleep paralysis once, and I thought I heard my brother coming up the stairs, so I thought nothing of it, then this black silhouette looms over me from behind and  starts pressing its fists into the spare above my collarbone, making me sink into the armchair I'd been napping in. Then it all just went away, and I thought it was over, but I still couldn't move, and I heard the footsteps coming up the stairs again, and I started to hear my own laughter, though I was still having sleep paralysis so I couldn't actually move, laugh, or talk. Then the figure looms over me again and, again, starts pressing me into the chair with its fists. When I finally regained control of my body, I was shaking so badly. It was terrifying.

I do that all the time XD If you watch my deviations closely from the time I submit it, you'll often see little changes happening XD

I really hope you'll get better very soon.
That's a really deep and powerful piece of artwork. It's stunning!
When I was a child someone told me that the power of a dreamcatcher fades away by the years so you need to replace or clean it (with sunlight) .
Later I learned, that there are different legends about how dreamcatchers work. First: the web catches both good and bad dreams. Bad dreams get stuck in the web and the good dreams are released to the owner through the feathers.
Second: Bad dreams just go through the hole in the middle of the web and just the good dreams get stuck.
Remembering your dreams is the first step into lucid dreaming but it's very hard to take the next step and even control them. (okay I need to stop here.. I shouldn't spam your comments with everything I learned about this topic :D)

Thank you so much my sweet heart <3
It means soo much to me that you like it ;w;

That is so great thank you!
I read and heard something similar to what you said and yes I know about the lucid dreaming :D
Can you remember the time when we first met, this was the time I learned it.
I still lived by my fathers place and I was to bothered with school to have bad dreams but I learned to remember them all.
I even could control my dream for once but sadly after that, I never had the chance to do it again.
Since I moved back to my mothers place, the nightmares are coming and chasing me in my dreams.
When I am dreaming I feel like I am switching to a whole different world and the reason why I can't wake up is because I feel like I am awake, even if this absurd things are happening.
( so I know I am dreaming but I also believe I am awake what kinda is really strange to handle)
and dont worry darling i do the same right now  XD
you know you can spam me as much as you want<3

I am sorry for you, having nightmares every night feels really terrible.
Just wondering, but have you ever tried to control your dream? I mean... ah... it's quite difficult to explain... I happen to have nightmares too but knowing it is MY dream and it doesn't affect reality i become able to control myself as a videogame charachter and fight. Sometimes i win, sometimes i don't.
Maybe it is because i love battles, who knows...

yes I know about that and I tried it several times it is hard to explain what I feel while dreaming
I just can say I know its a dream but I also believe that I am awake
and the funniest part is
when I realize that is all just a dream things a going to be more worse than before ^^;

Extremely beautiful! I love the atmosphere and emotion.

to be honest, I think I lost the ability to dream. As I don't remember anything. Sometimes I'll get just nightmares about death.
