Hush by eva-guy01 Hush by eva-guy01
Hush little baby, don't say a word
and never mind that noise you heard.
It's just the beast under your bed
in your closet, in your head.

~Kirk Hammet, Metallica, Enter Sandman

Even monsters need to sleep.

I noticed that all of Dream's fanarts in this community never depicted him wearing his "Helm of Office", or in other words, his helmet. And he does bring along a small bag of sand, as a formality.

Plus his helmet, or at least the design based on Gaiman's novel "Season of Mists" reminded me of a particular favorite monster of mine, so i thought of using it as the subject of Dream's nightly visits.

And what does it dream? How about Ripley on a stick?

My entry for Dream contest. Drawn with Mongol pencil #2 on sketchpad and rendered via Photoshop. Since it took me an accumulated 8 hours doing the sketch vs the one hour of photoshop, i believe it deserves the category Traditional artwork.

Not exactly sure but that looks so much like an alien that came out of the space jockey!

Nobody thinks about the poor alien working it's butt off endlessly shopping for hosts and not a thought for itself, only to serve ol' lazyass Queenie, - sigh!!!

Nice work :worship:

You're right, portraits of him and his helm are few and far between.
And you're right again wehn you spot the resemblance between him and a xenomorph. . .I dunno why I never quite saw it . . .
but yeah, excellent work, I have nothing to add that hasn't already been said.

that is an amazing drawing. I love the concept too, something I've thought about, but never actually been able to imagine in such full detail.
