Yo! It's great to see your work again~ This piece gives me the creeps but I guess, it is supposed to do that XD I like the shading in this picture and how it seems to be realistic. I also like the light in the background and the fact that it looks like a distorted moon of sorts (I hope you get what I mean > . <) Happy Halloween! Though it seems, I'm sort of late D:

May you explain how this work suits the theme 'Dreams and Nightmares' for the :iconmadmen-asylum: challenge?

Hey,

sorry for my late answer. I’m very busy at the moment but I hope I can reply correctly to your question why I think my picture „Scarecrow" fits into „Dreams and Nightmares“. 

First, it’s a dark and creepy picture. I have often experienced that I saw something alive and then I took a second look and it wasn’t. So the face of the pumpkin-scarecrow, it’s not real - maybe only in my imagination - maybe not. 
It's about fear of darkness, scary shadows and a lone field with some trees, moonlight and a single light in the distance… it's the perfect location seeing things which not exist or aren’t there. But in the mind they come to life. 

I hope, you understood what I want to say. If you still have got questions, please ask :)
Happy Halloween!

Thank you, your explanation is very clear. Since the visual works are meant to inspire the written ones in the second part I'm checking all the entries to see if they have a good description. You know, they can help a lot triggering an inspiration.

Ah, I chose your work as inspiration for the written challenge part. Probably you got a mention, but I wanted to leave a proof on your entry too.
