please like/reblog from there, thanx!!

whoa, the new submit page! i need to get used to that!

anyways, i was playing around with the idea of Nightmare!Guardians cause i kept seeing some really awesome art of them.
they all represent different forms of mental disorder/ state of mind.
i really want to draw them and the Guardians battling each other!! but i have such a long list of other things i need to draw (...most of which are ROTG related, oh god, lol...)

And thus the curse of his mirror began to take form. The guardians, always so sure of their power, their centers, had never known of the nightmares that plagued them.

For how can one see wonder in their world when apathy shows us only bleakness and grey?

How can a dream be adored when anxiety crushes it to dust?

How could hope exist when depression shows us life's futility?

How can our fondest memories ever overtake our deepest traumas?

And how is there fun to be had when worry and paranoia keep us occupied.

It was said that fear is the enemy of our life, but it is fear that shows us our courage, that keeps us alive and aware of the true horrors in the world. But against the Nightmares before us there is no courage, no overcoming fear. Nothing but a void where all is lost.

Prepare yourself, Guardians. For your greatest enemy is not fear. It never was. It is emptiness.


...love the work, I've seen it before online but only now found it on DA. The color contrast and flowing style, perfect for this, absolutely wonderful. I get chills every time I see it. Bravo.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

How quaint. Tell me, if faced with a feral beast in the woods, should you smile and greet it with open arms? Should a young child lost in the forest whistle happily and carefree as the wolves descend? Fear is the mark of fools and wise men alike, for it allows us caution and awareness. We have many things to fear, and the difference between the fool and the wise man is how they control themselves in the face of fear.

Holy snap, I actually got shivers looking at this - I just adore the color contrasts in them, and the one of Bunny is truly a little terrifying.

I think Pitch could have been added and his 'friend' could be abandonment or failure or something like that.

I get why almost all of them are what they are, but why is Jack's paranoia? Is it because the opposite of wanting to be seen, fear of being seen?
Reply
:iconmagmashift101:
Magmashift101 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2013
Because he's paranoid that he will never be seen by anyone. Scared to the point of paranoia that no one will ever believe in him.

These are so damn believable. Jack's paranoia about never being believed in. Tooth's traumatic experience of losing her fairies. Bunnies depression that Easter was ruined and being the last Pooka. Sandy's anxiety about the nightmare sand taking him again. North's apathetic alter ego as a Cossack bandit lord. Great interpretations!
