First of all, I want to start by saying that this is an image I am sure I would not have drawn had it not been for this competition. I have sketched him a few times, and even thought about doing colored illustrations in the past, but I never had a reason to do so until now.
When I was a child I was afraid of the dark and especially afraid of what was in the closet. I was about 5 when my mom found out. A few days later she bought me washable crayons. She told me to draw pictures (of me, my friends, cartoons I loved, or anything that would make me happy) on the wall near my closet. She told me that if I did so, my scary closet would transform into warm sun. A Sun that would give light to the world on my wall with the pull of a string.
From that moment on I was still afraid of the dark but I was never afraid of my closet again. However, to this day my mom has yet to figure out what I had drawn on my wall. It was neither a friend I knew or a cartoon she knew I watched...it was me and a figure whom I called "Hhol".
For the life of me I do not remember drawing anyone whom I called "Hhol". I do however remember drawing strange figures on the wall. For reasons I can only attribute to the scary movies I watched as a kid, this is what I imagine "Hhol" looked like...and it's probably why I was afraid of my closet when I was 5
Sorry for long description, I held this for a long time. I wish everyone good luck in the contest
I never really imagined a snarling beast hiding in the closet or anything, just something lurking, which in someways is even more disturbing. Of course as a kid I probably wouldn't have thought of these exact details, but I have to put this artistic license to use.

As a child I was always terrified of monsters coming up from the basement and especially scared of them nabbing my heel just before I get off of the last step on my way up. So in the spirit of this, here is my entry for the contest and something that I probably would have believed in as a kid coming up from the depths and chasing me...

To me a car is a creature. A metal that can move, make noise, able to breath and have soul (hence the name, "Dart Soul Particle") This piece of work was inspired by Dodge Dart 2013 .I hope you like it and thank you for the enjoyable contest from Dodge Dart Inspired by You Contest and DA. PS. I suppose to had this work in a couple of days ago but I feel like making improvement so I spend more time on it^ ^.
