Demons making Sleep Paralysis


A new painting I had showing at Big Umbrella studios, San Francisco. The theme of the group show was "dreams and creatures of the night" so I thought it would be the perfect setting to paint some Lice demons. If you are not aware of what a lice demon is you can read the little bio about them here: http://comickpro.devianta rt.com/art/Puppet-Demon-B io-285533139

which explains their origins and how they adapt to make themselves mobile with the bodies of other demons since they are parasitic and stuff. You also see a mess of different ones near the end of issue 2 when Fibble is running from Idolatry.

But one thing that i haven't yet had a chance to mention about lice demons is that they do not have the ability to talk like most other demons (they hiss and screech but cant actually speak or form words). The way lice demons communicate with something or someone is by touching them and then projecting nightmares and horrible visions into the victims heads and "speaking" to them though those images. So you never want to be touched by a lice demon firstly because they will probably eat your soul without reserve haha, but also because they can give you some of the most horrible nightmares. Lice demons also have another skill: they are the producers of Sleep Paralysis Demons. These little fetus-looking demons usually are formed without heads and have sharp pincer jaws that it uses when it invades a person's room at night and clamps onto their heads...forcing the sleeper into terrible fever dreams and nightmares. They fill them with such intense panic and fear the person wants to wake up screaming, but the demon paralyzes the body so that they cannot wake from the nightmare they are experiencing. Some humans die from the fear and anxiety, suffering from heart attacks and intense lack of breathing.

So yeah in the scene, two lice demons are having a late night conversation and their nightmare dialogue is producing 2 new sleep paralysis demons. There is another sleep paralysis demon (that one causes nightmares from food induced fever dreams) holding popcorn and enjoying the chat while another sleep paralysis demon (that one causes nightmares about genital mutilation) is crawling on one of the lice demons looking for the Pepsi to suck and stay up later. Its an overall insomnia and nightmare party!

Comick responds:

Thanks a ton for looking at it :)

Awesomely creepy as always... is that thing on the top-right corner a stapled dick?? '-'

Comick responds:

hahah thanks! also that demon causes nightmares about genital mutilation, so his head looks like a dick that has been cut down the center and then sewed back up. :)

I've had some pretty bizarre / creepy sleep paralysis incidents myself. THEY MADE ME BELIEVE IT WAS JUST A DREAM BUT I'M NOT THAT STUPID, YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE DEMONS, NEVER!!!!!! nice artwork.

Comick responds:

you are so lucky!! not many people have the privy to be greeted by such creative demons :D You might want to learn from them and your art will get even scarier and more twisted mmm?? or...you die of fright and they eat your soul ...but sacrifices must be made in the name of art! Or nevermind haha maybe you took a wiser approach by combatting them :b


Comick responds:

Comick responds:

Haha then I guess they had a good time with you last night
