I have to disagree, The Exorcist is scariest movie ever.
But it is more disturbing than scary I guess.
But The Shining is definatley up there, along with The Ring.
Awsome pic!

Very nice. Cool effect! Did you use a filter?

I'm not sure I understand - is the effect the coarseness? That was just because I was working with a jagged brush. It was one I'd made from scanning some paint strokes and it's one of my favorites. In some places I made the brush smaller and used the ink tool to do detail, but in others I just left it rough.

I may have duplicated the layer and set the upper one to overlay to intensify the colors (possibly putting a gaussian blur on the upper layer too).

Yep, I meant the paint effect, sorry! I usually do the overlay/multiply blurred layer effect too. Works marvels!

Creepy movie. 'Come play with us'

This was the scariest image of the movie, despite the inspired performance by Jack Nicholson.

I like your treatment of it.

Actually, the Gradey's weren't twins.

It's a common misconception.

Hmmm, maybe I shouldn't have :+fav:ed this... If it ever appears in my 'Random Favourites' when I load up my gallery, I may just have a heart attack.

Good to see you painting again. 'Cause ya know, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy...

I started to "bake" you a cake, but it all went a bit naff and I threw it away. But it's the thought that counts, right? :) Belated happy annibirthday.
