Sweet work , man.
This is really well animated , the shading is great considering the way the shadows waver and move.

Thanks so much! I appreciate your kind words! :)

Very humorous!- love the choking part

shadow-ghost responds:

Glad you liked! ;)

Really cool aesthetic and style. Love the simplicity. It's a style that has been done before, but you utilized it very well. I really liked the way you showed the guy turning around and getting up during the night to indicate the effect of the evil presence. The end result was certainly shocking, but maybe it should have been a bit more subtle. Like instead of the fingers just poking through the guy's face violently, maybe it could be more of a thing with quiet possession or the monster just finally grabbing him, but now killing him, it should be more psychological. The looping aspect of the gif means it could all be a dream or something, meaning he doesn't really die, but all gifs loop and this is still too literal for that. If you were going for that maybe you could have shown him getting up then. But that would kinda ruin the effect of his previous wake-up.
Overall, a cool Halloween gif, but needs a bit more subtlety.

Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts! I do appreciate everything you had to say. To clarify, the "ending" is intended to be a chokehold as a rather literal representation of sleep apnea (and partially sleep paralysis as well), so it's definitely a "loop" in events rather than something with a beginning and end.

Anyway, thank you again for the kind words! :)

Nice! I love the quick cuts. To someone who suffers from insomnia/sleep paralysis, I can relate to this quite a bit. The smaller details of him changing sleeping position are a nice touch, as well as the static- which I would relate to that tingling feeling as your body falls asleep. Good stuff, happy Halloween!

shadow-ghost responds:

There's definitely heavy inspiration from sleep disorders in this one - I like that you noticed that! Thanks for your nice comment. :)
