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
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.
Danger is always closer than you think. -------- My heart's a stereo It beats for you, so listen close Hear my thoughts in every note Make me your radio And turn me up when you feel low This melody was meant for you Just sing along to my stereo
If I could only find a note to make you understand I'd sing it softly in your ear and grab you by the hand Just keep it stuck inside your head, like your favorite tune And know my heart's a stereo that only plays for you
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.
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?
I'm terrible with titles. I don't know. Anyway, graphite on paper. I had another idea for the insidious contest. That's one of the reasons I like these contests--they give me ideas I wouldn't have had otherwise, force me to work with a time constraint, and I always feel like I learn something. Plus I got to practice feet! Also, I've noticed that bathrooms seem to symbolize vulnerability for me. Which makes things scarier.
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?
