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.

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.

Sometimes headphones are good to block out stuff. Other times they make you unaware of the dangers around. As you focus your attention on listening to the music or the voices of your teammates, just be sure you are also looking around yourself.

I feel this is a better composition and wanted to take my existing piece and focus on the phantom by cropping the image, making it a portrait orientation piece. I hope this feels much more personal and focused rather than having the broader view. I also wanted to make the colours much more vibrant and add more details and stronger lighting. Please as usual let me know your thoughts. All references used belong to me and all created in Photoshop.

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.

So the version I uploaded earlier was the result of my brain spazzing out and telling me the contest ended two hours ago. I hope this one looks a little more finished.

My entry for the Insidious Contest.

When I was little I was one of those kids that needed a night light and would be afraid to go into the basement because the light switch was at the bottom of the stairs.

With a Baroque style lighting and color scheme, I wanted to achieve the horrible feeling of the viewer seeing what the subject cannot. I for one, was always unsettled when either reading with a flashlight, or on my computer in the dark, and looking away only to see complete darkness until my eyes could adjust. Unbeknownst to her, there is something lurking right beside her.
