~ A nightmare defending

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

I adopted a standard view to the nightmares, keeping them a particular type of fantastic horse with fire instead of hair and usually red, resistant skin. However, in order to include them in my original imaginary universe, I added some other traits to them as well, and a particular background, Nightmares are, so far, the best of all the terrors (fabulous horses that have sharp theeth, and this is the only distinct trait of terrors amongst other horses of imagination; beyond that, terrors too come in many shapes, sizes and colors - amongst which nightmares are, of course very special).This is one of my best so far. A nightmare-nightmare as I rarely attempted to do. Thus, is pretty much self-explanatory and I don't have too much to add... I have other nightmares in this series. I tend to draw nightmares with different patterns and only some comon features (they usually look more like reptiles and the fires are a must). - the skin pattern took a while but was rather a success. - I'm also pleased with how the fire came out and other smaller details (like the horn pattern or back spines). - the wings could be better, but I'm contempt for teh time being (I did a lot of wings this time and I got tired). - clearly, someone launched a fabulous sphere-projectile which the nightmare is stopping it with the right wing, while the left wing prepares a fabulous projectile to sent back... Next is another picture with the same nightmare, except in a simpler version (no wings and some other details).   !Attention!: this is a large picture, 1800 x 1080 pixels, so it is advised to try the "Full size" button, just in case...
