It reminds me of [link]

This image can be found in Wikipedia when you look up sleep paralysis. I used to have sleep paralysis but it quit happening after I learned how to make it stop... it would happen over and over, even if i woke up.

I remember this story. A nightmare is a defensive trait of your body to get you to wake up because your breath is being stolen, or something like that. It's one of those stories that has stuck with me.
This is so creepy. You did a fine job.

This is an amazing work. Is it your interpretation of Henry Fuseli's "The Nightmare"? There isn't any conformation from the looks of the comments.... Regardless, its incredibly executed. The shades of red have so much depth.
