Every day someone celebrates a birthday. This is my take on a birthday gone wrong. In this case, a teddy bear did not take kindly to being replaced. I didn't want to make it dark and gloomy, because that is when you wait for something bad to happen. I think the most terrifying events occur when you least expect them. Though this isn't terrifying, I do find it somewhat creepy.
It was always there in the shadows Watching while she worked Waiting
Very fun, and very creepy to work on. C: Always learning and crafting; the download is rather huge.... since the canvas is a little under 20x12 inches... >< (Originally I was working on a 50x30 canvas)
Also, When I upload things to DA the files seem to darken substantially...and I lose some of the detailing in the dark areas, is anyone else having this Issue?
What brings most monsters to life for us is watching them on tv. This poor little boy had an insidious encounter with his late night viewing. The image quite literally decides to come out after him. Gradual at first. In utter shock he stairs and hopes he's just sleepy...but the television has become a nightmarish portal. Acrylic on canvas. Hope I have a shot, good luck everyone!!!
I suppose surgery may not be something that happens in everyone's daily life but it does happen to some more than others. I for one am terrified of surgery, though this image isn't about tomophobia but Anesthesia Awareness instead. For those of you who don't know anesthesia awareness is when a patient who is undergoing surgery dose not receive enough anesthesia. As a result the brain remains awake and the patient can feel every cut, nip and tug performed by the doctors. The body is paralyzed so the patient can't even inform the doctor of the pain they are in. It's horrible and it's real. My image is more of a worst case scenario because the doctors are intentionally trying to harm the patient.
The thing that creeps me out the most is when you are sleeping, and you get this feeling that there is something else with you, and you really REALLY don't want to wake up or open your eyes. So I did this piece where this guy is just chilling out on his porch reading/listening to music, and of course.. he has to fall asleep. And what do you know, evil grandma there wants to pay him a visit.. maybe stick around and bake him a pie. ;D
The saying goes, "When you stare into the void, the void stares back at you." I tried to create something unsettling in a nondescript place. What hides in those shadows between the coats? Will you become part of the darkness also?
Darkness is one of the most frightening things that I believe humans have to live with. One of the reasons I have created this picture is because of how darkness has related to me. On several occasions I have awakened from a deep sleep only to see dark creepy figures hovering around my bed. I am awake and alert, and I know the things that I see are probably not real, but I cannot help but think "what if this time it's real?"
This is my first entry for dA's Insidious 2 contest.
The Theme: I created this image based on my everyday activity- drawing- but this time something has gone horribly wrong. I've turned my back for one moment, and something sinister is coming for me. Haha. I guess my creations are sick of all the bright colors
The back half is painted traditionally and the front half is painted in photoshop. I used all my own stock and reasources. I haven't done anything more than simple edits on photoshop in over a year. I know I need more practice It was so frustrating trying to achieve the look that I was actually going for....and this is miles away from what I'd actually like this picture to look like. I may try and refine this and make a better version if I have time. Otherwise, I'm happy enough with it for now.
This is based on my old concentration from AP art. Specifically this piece: [link] I actually like the older piece better (because I know I don't excel at photoshop right now) but I wanted to try something new and go for a different effect.
