A new couple, with their newborn baby, moved into their first house outside of the "Sea of Trees". They were lucky finding a house this cheap in the dwindling economy, even with some of the rooms in disrepair. At night though, they hear scratching from inside the closet, like something trying to open it up. They both look inside but see nothing but the wall behind the door.
Eventually the noise starts getting louder and louder every night.
Worried about what's happening, the couple go out, asking the locals for some information about the house. They are told the story of the last couple whom lived there, also about how the forest workers last saw them going into the forest and never coming out years ago.
They return home find blood everywhere, floating towards the ceiling, the walls and woodwork warped, and the sound of the baby crying in their room. Rushing in, they are meat with subtle eyes everywhere. The baby in its crib is being lifted and dragged towards the open closet, now filled with a deep darkness. The both chase after but have the closet shut on them. Opening the closet, they find the darkness has vanished, leaving the wall back behind the door again.
Forest workers were on the search for days till they found the baby, dead and resting in the arms of two corpses. The last occupants of the couple's house.
As a kid, I was always afraid of ghosts, yet had a fascination with them. Maybe its the fact that we know almost nothing about them.
Alrighty, this is my entry for Guillermo Del Toro's contest on DA, seen here [link] . Story is there to help explain the pic. Had the idea for a ghost couple wanting to bring in a baby to keep with them while roaming the Aokigahara. Not wanting to be alone forever. Kind of a creepy idea, yeah? So put on the Fatal Frame 2 soundtrack [link] , Silent Hill 2 soundtrack, the last half of Pink Floyd's Bike [link] to to get some inspiration.
Lemme know what you guys think
BTW, just to clarify, that's a porcelain doll floating. Been getting confused peoples comments about it.
This is my entry the Bring Your Vision to Live Contest by Wacom. Please give it (ideally between 29th May and 04th June 2009) a Favourite. That would be great, thank you!
The picture: Regarding the theme Good vs. Evil I first thought of pictures showing Good and Evil in clear opposing situations or a body split in half. Somehow these ideas didn't tap the full potential. A friend of mine told me he once saw a picture like described above, but the Good side had clearly evil eyes and vice versa.
I wanted to do something that ambiguous.
Further talks brought about fighting kids in kindergarden. With that combined I had the Red Riding Hood topic in my mind. Clearly Red Riding Hood is a nice girl and the story is about the Big Bad Wolf. What if it wouldn't be quite like that.
I wanted a black wolf with bared fangs, being hugged by a sweet little girl. On second look the picture should put the first impression of this relationship in doubt. It was important for me to work out little details, as for example the velvet hood and the embroidery on sthe sleeves. The border with sylvan motives gives it a frame, adds color and pronounces the fairy-tale theme. It is kept in a naive style to be reminiscent to old book illuminations I found.
Time: about 35 h Material: Intous 3 A4, Photoshop CS3 I hope you like the picture. Critique and comments are very welcome. If good ideas arrive in time I chances are good that I can work them in (it's due on 19th May 2009).
After meeting the lovely Romona Flowers, Jarvis Dent decided he would learn everything there was to know about her. Through his 733t hacking skills and lots of phone tapping, he learned everything that he needed to woo Romona without breaking a sweat!
Of course maintaining such a front is difficult and the relationship flew south rather quickly.
if you hoominz do capshun plz show me teh link! Wanna LOL too!
