WeiRd by YannickBouchard WeiRd by YannickBouchard
This is a quick painting I did based on a dream I had yesterday, a moment before being woken up. I thought it was so weird that I had to paint it, especially that I rarely remember my dreams at all.

The thing is, me and my girlfriend got some hermit crabs a few weeks ago, and we were surprised to learn they can live as old as 30 years. In my dream, I was informed that they could actually live to be 100 years old or more, and the specimens (as illustrated) then grew up to a humanoid form. When reaching that form, they sometimes became aggressive and could turn against humans. That's when I witnessed the old lady crab kill a man with a spear. I started running away and woke up! xD

They're doing good! We had one that died in tragic circumstances, and another who disappeared mysteriously (probably eaten by the bigger ones), but the 3 remaining are fine!

Phew, since well, if my mind can already go full-creep on me when regarding dreams from collecting human ashes from a pit stacked full of human bones into a jar, entering an ancient sacrificial chamber through the door that looked like a cremation chamber`s door that still reeked of death and had skulls for walls and being contacted by a creepy sentient gemstone that was stuck in a fountain at midnight with full moon, then I don`t even wish to know what can yours do.
