Something I tell myself whenever things get tough, more so when it's art-related. There's no limit to the levels, but you know you're leveling up when things get harder Whipped this up real quick for the contest, since I found out about it kinda late but still wanted to join anyways. If you guys like it, please vote! It would be very much appreciated
Almost forgot to enter this quick pic to the contest. As a small kid I wasn't afraid of what was in the closet, my imagination made the closet door the monster and it's innards were behind the door. O.o
Photo and Edit by myself: Natasha Epperson Monster and Makeup: Katie, the little boy is her son.
So funny story, Katie has a little boy and little girl. We did shots of her in the closet and under the bed. The little girl is older than the boy, she was watching for awhile but when we did the photos and mom got under the bed she couldn't watch anymore cause she got too scared. The little boy had NO problems at all He did a great job!
This is a depiction to something I called a 'Thump' when I was little, because that was the sound it made as it roamed the ancient halls at night that it called home, seeking out your mama and papa, because unlike most nightmares, this one only sought out the parents for their skin, leaving the scrawny kids to peek out their door after something thumped down the hall and witness their new life as an orphan.
I like how its presence even sent the rats fleeing, and the wife grappled with the beside table, sending it crashing spectacularly to the floor. On a side note, I never imagined that shattering vase would cause me so much grief... Things you have never drawn before and surprise deadlines do not pleasantly mix. I dearly enjoyed the angle of the scene, as it offered that warped, fainting perception of "IT'S ABOVE ME." I thought it fun to add a bit of an "easter egg" in the drawing, something relating directly to the 'MAMA' film poster. Can you find it? (Though I admit it likely isn't that apparent.)
Drawn in Photoshop.
