nightmares... by nami64 nightmares... by nami64

“we had a nightmare.”
“both of you? at the same time?”
“can we… sleep in your bed, with you? tonight? please?”


i wanted to draw something cute and happy and fluffy with this family -for once- and so, i drew the daughters in the bed of their parents! This is very historically inaccurate... Were children allowed to act like that during the 18th century? I DON'T THINK SO but... oh well, the things we do for the Art :D

let’s pretend Polly is around 3, Patsy around 8 and Martha is maybe pregnant - but we can’t see it because of the sheets, i’m so smart !

media: hands, photoshop

I think it probably is accurate. co-sleeping has been the norm for most of time.  Putting your little kids in a seperate room to sleep alone is a fairly modern (and odd, in my opinion) notion.  This is a very beautiful drawing.

haha, I remember sleeping like that with my two...Especially the youngest! He'd star fish out & I'd be balanced on the edge of the bed!

Oh, to hell with historical accuracy! A guy at a medieval festival once told me: "Was any of us there at the time? No! So could any of us claim that they did or didn't do something in the Middle Ages? No!!!" I really like the serenity of the drawing, and I envy you for portraying the husband's dangling arm in such an amazingly perfect (perspective-wise) way. You are truly talented!
