Things like this have always creeped me out, ever since I was a kid! You made this piece really creepy, but without overdoing it. I love the simplicity of it, and the details that you can see if you really look closely! I'm imagining waking up in the middle of the night and seeing this in my room...I'd probably lose my shit! Or just die of fright, or something...Something about disembodied facial features just freaks me out really bad! Especially mouths and eyes... Really well done! Your work is always awesome, but this one definitely has to be one of my favorites!!
The human mind is often plagued by superstitions and fears of the dark, and I think this piece here puts those thoughts into shape. I find this picture thought provoking, spine-chilling, and very well executed. It makes me sit here and wonder, "What is that?" -- "Is that a woman, a man?" -- "Does it like to eat bones and hair?" and all while I refrain from peeing my pants. I must say, I think this picture is amazingly terrifying. It is what horror should be--not bloody and gore with chunks of flesh here and there, or blood streaming from it's mouth, but chilling and haunting. This is something I can easily see in the shadows of an old horror classic, something that the camera only pans across, and leaves the viewer stumbling in horror, trying to recall what that was in the shadows! I must say, I really, really like this, and I think you've earned a watch from me.
In total, lets mark it up: the piece is not too gaudy, but has just enough to keep one focused and attentive. Even with it's simplicity, it is incredibly detailed (especially in the teeth, and the tufts of hair). It is, as I've said numerous times, thought provoking, and ultimately, terrifying! I don't want to leave my closet open at night because of this, or my curtains!
I just want to know how to effin delete it from my front page feed. Sincerely this creeps me out every time I see it. I am not happy, and I want to get rid of this becasue I can't stand getting into Deviantart and having to see this piece.
I am not happy but I have to congratulate you, creepiness archived :c
I was thinking the same thing: This reminds me of the things I shouldn't have seen as a kid! xD This is seriously well done.. That said; I don't think this is a good artwork- but only because the audience is wrong -in my view. Maybe some kids but I know I wasn't a sensitive one and still..this.. let's just say that I had/have a wild imagination and this shouldn't have been in it.
I've liked horror as long as I can remember - it's been a stress-remover like games are to some people. I think it's an important genre: Sometimes it's so well done that it consumes you for the hole night - so that your own trouble's won't seem that big after all.
I also like the fact that in most horror movies the villains aren't necesserily evil because they wan't to be or because they're simply bad. Oh..now I'm just saying things out of context..
Well, I suppose it depends on what the artists means by "children"! Kids from the ages of 1-11 probably shouldn't view this, but anybody who is 12+ probably can! A lot of kids from that age watch scary anime, read creppypastas, or play horror games! ^^
I love horror! ^^ But mostly psychological horror! ^^
Well, I usually don't watch Horror Films, but I get your point! The villains can't read do anything about the state they are in! xD
