This disturbingly common creature frequents his victims with ease and regularity. Those with chronic nightmares may do well to keep their windows shut. You see, when this critter unfurls his feeding tube and dangles it about, the little glowing fingers do a dance upon the brow. He feeds upon the very best of dreams, like sugarplums and games, but in their stead he leaves the worst, like hopelessness and pain.
Thanks for looking,

Quite a disturbing design but that's a good thing! I think that when you consider the bright highlights, the darkest areas of shadow aren't dark enough. I think the form of the Dream-Eater as well as the impact of the piece can be greatly improved by refining the shadows you've already established to have a more complete light-to-dark scale.
Many thanks. To make matters worse, I visited a friends monitor today and realized my monitor must be far too dark -- causing me to make overly light images. It's a new monitor for me, and I had simply adjusted by eye.
So, I used a program called quick gamma to help set my monitor to something more standard. My gamma was down by 2.4/2.5 instead of the happy 1.8-2.2 range! I'm used to traditional non-digital stuff, so calibration is new to me.
Now, this doesn't mean it doesn't need lots of work beyond some quick fix, but at least now it looks to the rest of the world a bit more like what it looked to me in the first place.
This relatively minor change in values has made a big difference. A great improvement for making the piece far more dramatic. I especially like the way that the lit tendrils illuminate from below. I can't wait to see more work on this.
it dosnt make sence to me. where do those mind thingies go into? it looks like a penis ejaculating.
