Dream Flayer by shadowfire-x Dream Flayer by shadowfire-x
Dream Flayers start out as tiny, ethereal insect-like creatures. They find a victim, and phase inside. Once in, the creature slowly takes over its host's dreams, turning them into nightmares. Soon, its influence is exerted during its victim's waking hours, inspiring fear, anger, and paranoia. The mental stress often causes the victim to begin acting suspicious, and even aggressive towards others. The Flayer feeds off of these negative emotions, and grows.

Adult Flayers can take on a large variety of insectoid forms, and are always considered very dangerous.

Well, I already gave a crit on this on IO, so I'll just say again how much I like it. <3 I love how intricate the design is, with all the armor plates on it. I particularly like the abdomen- the design looks very believable, and I like the stinger. I must say, the red eyes really draw the eye. I almost feel like somehow, that point of interest should have been just a little more towards the center of the picture, though, leaving it a bit less unbalanced? I guess that's kinda an obscure thing. Meh, I love it anyway. X3 I'm just nit picking little things because you have all the big stuff nailed.

I think it might work just a little bit better of the image wasn't cropped right at the creature though X3 Give it a little bit more breathing room ^^

But other than that, I haven't seen your stuff in a while, getting better and better!! :3

Sadly, I couldn't make the canvas any bigger, as it was done on an oekaki board.. =(
