Author Comments

Ever wondered where the word nightmare comes from? In Slavic mythology night mares are spirits, demons, goblins or souls that sit on a sleeping person's chest. That causes... well, as the name suggests, nightmares, but also they were the superstitious cause of death in sleep or cases of conscious paralysis (That is your mind is almost awake but the body is still not, giving the effect of paralysis in a dream).

I want this character in my novel, a daughter of http://galejro.deviantart.com/art/Ienitavereth-443964547 and a nearly human-looking vampire with a childish passion for choking people in their sleep, exploiting the myth of night mares.

You are a fountain of knowledge, my friend...

The link to the deviant art page doesn't show unless you sign up, though :(

For some reason, I feel like some light blues or yellows in the foreground would lend this one an eerier feel (which I think is the intention?) But what do I know? I can't draw very well, beyond stick figures...

Than this should work XD http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/galejro/ienitavereth

The background was mostly rushed and I didn't think it through. It's mostly black and now Its an eyesore. I think It's not too late to implement some changes, I'll have to work on it.
