Interested to know what your rates are for book cover illustrations. Asking as this art is right up my street in terms of what I am looking for.
I am not after a designer to create a book cover, only the illustration for it.
Happy to discuss.

CONGRATULATIONS! In reading this, you have just become the target for the Banging Boogerman! What is the Banging Boogerman, you ask? Well, let me tell you! You see, Banging Boogerman was a good friend of some girl named Cassie or something like that when he was still a normal human child. Oh, you should’ve seen the two, they killed people together. They maimed kids together, you should’ve been there! Anyways, Banging Boogerman’s life was cut short my him choking on a Hot Wheels car.

Anyways, now the Banging Boogerman has made whoever reads this post his new target, which is now you. Although, how does the Banging Boogerman know when someone’s reading this post? Does he have like super hearing of super vision or something? WAIT, WHAT AM I SAYING!? Forget that! All you need to know is that if you don’t paste this comment on 10 other posts, you’re boned!

Don’t believe me!? Just see what happened to the other three people!

1. Elizabeth...last name unknown. Really, I checked, she doesn’t have a last name.: She read this and didn’t paste this on any other posts. That night, the Banging Boogerman chopped off her feet and tossed her feet into a pit of legos.

2. Billy Bob: He read this and pasted this on 3 different posts. Which was rather stupid, actually. COME ON, BILLY! I TOLD YOU TO PASTE THIS ON 10 OTHER POSTS! NOT 3! LEARN TO READ, BILLY! THIS IS WHY THE BANGING BOOGERMAN PISSED ON YOU MOM, BILLY!...Wait, IS THIS THING STILL ON!?

*Take 2*

3. Steve Steve: He read this and pasted this on 9 different posts. That actually deserves a congratulations. I mean, really, it does. I should’ve given him a cake. Anyways, it’s still not enough and then the Banging Boogerman...Wait...Hold on, what’s this? Why is there chocolate all over the rest of the record?...JASON! JASON, I TOLD YOU TO KEEP YOUR CHOCOLATE PUDDING AWAY FROM THE MURDER RECORDS! I TOLD YOU TO KEEP YOUR GRIMY CHOCOLATE HANDS OFF THE-

*Take 3*

Anyways, now you know. Please, be a pal and paste this on 10 posts. I don’t want anymore accidents! Moral atrocities aside, it takes so long to clean up! Do you know what it’s like to clean feet out of a pit of legos using nail clippers!? Anyways, here’s your rules.

Paste this on 0 posts: The Banging Boogerman tosses your feet into a pit of legos.

Paste this on 1-3 posts: The Banging Boogerman eats your butt.

Paste this on 4-7 posts: The Banging Boogerman makes you stub your toe on a table made out of metal.

Paste this on 8-9 posts: The Banging Boogerman gives you 10 papercuts.

Paste this on 10 posts: Wham bam! You’re safe!

This is really creepy. Would it be possible to share it on a horror blog with some of your commentary?

Hi! I'm a staff writer for the horror website Haddonfield Horror. I report on the noteworthy horror pieces present across social media. I'd like to feature you and this piece for Digital Art. Would you be interested?

Just randomly typed in 'Horror' and this pic immediately caught my attention. It's really stunning and fascinating... So dark and nightmar-ish, in a way I love very much. The contrast of light and shadows also fits this theme so well.
I just wonder... How did you make this? I don't really know how 'photomanipulation' works. Is this all by you or was there an original photo where you edited something? And if so, what exactly did you do with it? I hope I didn't ask too many questions, I'm just very curious how you made this amazing work. :D

Hopefully me popping in with my take on the methods is welcome. I'm guessing Joe got someone behind the curtain for the figure with some strong backlighting to get the weird silhouette effect, then photoshopped the creepy face in with some transparency to make it blend.

Me-He in my mind so you can't see him

absolute nightmarish horror. The effect of the translucent curtain is outstanding. I may never sleep again
