A GIF showing what it’s like to wake up with sleep paralysis.

You’re forgetting the terrifying hallucinations

As someone who’s had sleep paralysis multiple times, let me tell you that if your mind has woken up and your body hasn’t DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPEN YOUR EYES. Wake your body up first by slowly trying to move it, wiggle your toes and hands, then gradually work your way up until your body is fully awake. Opening your eyes when you have sleep paralysis is hard enough, but when you do there is a good chance you can see hallucinations like this. 

I also have been the victim of sleep paralysis too many times, its bad enough without hallucinations, and so i thought i would add some info on sleep paralysis for anyone who suffers from it. 
As Shada said, wiggling toes and hands are good ways to snap out of it, although other small body parts work, even humming/talking (although things related to breathing might be more difficult). Just FOCUS on one part, its hard to regain control, but easy to become paralyzed again.
Once you can move again, dont go right back to sleep, you might get paralyzed again. Or have the worst dreams of your life. Turn on a light, do something relaxing, like reading a book. Its been said that looking at a light before sleeping can prevent sleep paralysis.
Sleeping on your back rises the chances of you getting sleep paralysis. If you get it a lot, pay attention to what position you are in when it occurs.
Hallucinations, the  best part, arent just things like in the gif above. They could be anything from just dark shapes floating around, to scary monsters and demons to sounds and feeling like something is shaking/touching you. I’ve had an experience where it felt like my bed was shaking while a metallic screeching sound roared whenever i tried to breath. Solution? ignore it. Its all you can do. Hallucinations cant actually do anything to you, and you cant move again if you’re being distracted. And once the paralysis is gone, so are the  hallucinations.
Most people dont really have to worry, they will only get it once or twice in their life. Maybe not even ever! :D


listen to the person above when they say you should NOT open your eyes, because chances that you’ll see something that is uniquely terrifying to you are strong. and if it’s really bad, you might even start seeing scary shit even when your eyes are closed
my tip is to imagine the most ridiculous image/scene ever and keep replaying it in your head, over and over again, like robert downey jr butt naked or hugh dancy being confronted by police for taking pictures of airport carpets, etcetera etcetera
trust me. it works

reblogging because this is important and because you mentioned Hugh Dancy and his ridiculous airport carpet obsession

This honestly sounds terrifying.  Like hallucinations are one thing, but having them and physically not being able to move sounds like the worst thing that could ever happen to you.



I’ve gotten used to this experience, I’m surprised to hear that it’s not as common as I had been lead to believe… Definitely had it more than twice since high school.

Roughs for my next piece, trying to get the general tones/atmosphere for this piece sorted out, The only light source in the cave should be the campfire, outside will be lit by the moon with some of the color bleeding into the cave. Going to have to consider what I can do to make the cave look larger without actually moving the details of the opening.

This is still the rough stage, so I might see what I can do to improve my kirin’s proportions/anatomy. drawing any kind of sleeping figure is usually a challenge, much easier to draw dynamic stuff but I find this to be a fun challenge.

Time Lapse of my Flutterbat Returns picture, It was a lot of fun putting together both the image and the video.

Progression and completion on my Flutter Bat picture, I started this when the episode came out… I finally had time to knock the last bits of it out! I like how this turned out but it’s time to move onto a new project!

Since I couldn’t really do much for her birthday I  decided to take a break from NOT understanding geometry to make a gift art for Emylee. I’ve been wanting to do more art with the pony character I designed for her. Particularly involving sky/ocean themes so I painted her pony Emirii with a couple of gigantic seagulls as a gift and thanks for everything!

Catlateral Damage is a first person mischievous cat simulator, where your objective is to knock as many of your loving owners belongings onto the floor within a 2 minute time limit.

It’s a fun little game, and there’s a lot of satisfaction to be had from knocking things over and making a mess (That’s probably why cats do it in the first place).  The dev plans to add more levels (rooms) to destroy, but at the Alpha gives you free reign to destroy your owners bedroom for 2 mins.  On your marks… get set… destroy!!

Play the Alpha, Free

Video games in 2014 are off to a fucking phenomenal start

New Years Resolutions?

I’ve never been big on new year resolutions, especially the “lose weight” ones. But I guess this year I have made a few resolutions for the new year.

  • Create more feel good pieces of art
  • Get back into weekly art casting
  • Continue to try my best to maintain my grades in school

I guess that will be it for now. I’m not sure what else I want to make as a resolution. I believe in setting attainable goals for the most part. not setting myself up for failure. We’ll see how things go and maybe this time next year I can claim I attained my goals.
