The East Wing by AshleyCope The East Wing by AshleyCope
Most macabre castles and manors have Forbidden Zones. The castle that Yorick lives in has one too, and everyone just refers to it as the East Wing. The East Wing is never entered, never tended, and never discussed for in it lies the entrance to the basement and the Evil Seed from which the castle sprouted long ago. No one knows much about the Seed, whether's it's just a big cluster of roots, a magic gem, or a peach pit, but the Seed knows a lot about the castle and everyone that lives inside of it.

Yorick, our dashing blond zombie hero, sets off to ask a favour of the Seed. He's not scared in the least and likes to brag about this fact so that everyone's aware. In his company we have Ophelia (who's alive but we won't hold that against her), Momus the crippled vampire, and Ivy, Yorick's pet eyeball, who is giant, slimy, and betentacled.

Patterns are fun. The composition is busy and flat but I like the colours XP Moving on.

It's beautiful!!! Yorick is a cutie of a zombie, the girl is amazing, and I totally want to learn to know Momus. And his pet eyeball --- god, I really prefer my budgies!!!

Love it! There are so many details I don't even know where to look first! May I ask how many hours (days?) of work went into this?

I don't quite remember! This is an exceptionally old painting. I would estimate there were 40 hours behind it though. Thanks for the kind words :)

what happened to momus's legs?

Momus is a vampire, and was terrorizing a village so a necromancer hunted him down and cut his legs off, so he couldn't hunt people anymore. Now he's handicapped and bound in the wheelchair, so he has to rely on the generosity of others for his blood supply.

i know your art since 4 years ago, i had no deviantart account in that time and.. it was hard to find your account and drawings again...i surprised a lot to found it with the words "Vampire" and "Zombie" in the search, it was not easy because there are a lot of drawings with the description "vampire" and "zombie".. but after all i could find it  Emote 2   , and it never ceases to amaze those beautiful details that have to do drawing closer and you can not contemplate the naked eye, someone have to see for a long time to help you find new things hidden in the drawing .. you have inspired me so much that I also make my own stories, Thanks!  Pokey La

It doesn't matter how much time passes, I always come back to this painting. It's one of those that I never lose fascination with. I could stare at it and stare at it and it just never gets old. It's so original, sweet and macabre all at once. I just love it. Everything about it. :)

Not so much on creepy, but more on interesting (Momus and his strange-looking 'wheelchair') and cute (Yorick and Ophelia). Liked the cheerful pastel hues too :)
