Dead-End by Absolute-Sero Dead-End by Absolute-Sero
This. Took a while.

I had better commentary planned when I started it in the beginning of October. Now.. I can't remember.

But I can say that I'm fairly happy with how the creature turned out. Yessiree. I bet many of you can guess what game very, very heavily influenced this. The creature IS something I designed myself, and was shaped to match.. someone I had in mind when painting the foreground character. >;]

I think I attempted something similar several years ago, and this, though a far cry from the first idea, is a remake of it. Pretty much better in every way.

Most fun thing to paint in this picture: the rusty chains, oddly enough.
Least fun thing I did this time: THE FLOOR. Augh.

Here's to a happy Halloween for all of you! :pumpkin:

Now that this is up, time to go put my costume on and enjoy some chocolate/CANDEH. 8D :heart:

20-30 hours; painted in CS2

Ooooh. I can see why this would took real long to finish. O.O

Dead-End, appropriate title indeed. Juuuuust enough lighting to see what exactly has cornered the poor fellow. :fear:

I know the influence behind this creature. But without knowing that, there could speculations on this thing. It's got the basic foundations of a human, albeit a rather deformed one. Probably a really bad mental case, if it had to be chained before.

Nice work on the floor, the chains and the lighting! The trapped person there adds a nice desperate touch to this pic, mwahaha. >83

Yeah.. I had to keep tweaking the lighting so that it was dark enough yet light enough (due to the door in the background) to see some details.
The floor probably cost me part of my sanity.. :crazy: Oy.

MWAHAHAHA. I'm a bad influence on you.. 'cuz that is exactly the line of thought I hoped people might view the monster in ♥ It was designed to mirror many of a certain characters subconscious fears and quirks, hehe. >8D
