Yeah he is a bit creepy, And a bit like PH but actually predates him by a few years. It's based on a reoccurring nightmare so it is as it generally appeared. Though the sword was only a blip in one nightmare and not nearly as big a blade. So yeah I guess PH rubbed off on the design a bit.
Yeah PH is a monster icon I certainly can't compete with. I'd do fan art of him if I did fan art. But I don't anymore. And I'd have to agree , my monster creeps me out more, I think childhood nightmares shape your phobias in a way, because I still find him creepy.
Trust me the nightmare version was way-WAY creepier. It's legs changed in length, from towering to short., so did it's snout. And it's huge head would occasionally float around my house. Good god this is not the time to be thinking of this. I gotta go to bed in a few minutes...
Sorry to drag your thoughts to this subject so close to bedtime. >_<
I had a funny thought...if you were having nightmares about this fellow before your knew about Silent Hill and PH, I could see a scene of PH trying to terrorize you in your sleep, and this one leaning in a corner just shaking his big, floating head. "Please, lightweight...I've been at this for years, you're doing it wrong."
Yeah I got chased a lot by this thing in its various forms in reoccurring nightmares. It only appeared like this once or twice I think, most of the time it was a quadruped with legs that grew very long.
Another favourite of mine...even if it is difficult to say which one of your pictures is not a favourite of mine xD
I really like the athmosphere, the mood of the picture, and the creature design itself. Not only the design, but even the pose, the expression...everything, as usual! Really love how you do the fur (actually I LOVE everything you do XD), and the fire...
I am speechless...it's so beautiful *_* That blood dripping from the fingers and from the blood...those black eyes...everything. I love everything of this picture
Yes I know you do but its nice to hear it anyway. This one is one of my favs too, it has a dark feel to it and its not quite so cartoony, which is something I really like about it. I guess its because the nightmare this originally appeared in was quite scarey, so I tried to depict it somewhat like it appeared, though this still does it no justice. One day I'll get it spot on.
I had one nightmare in which one of my monster came and obsessed me XD It was really...disturbing, because I wasn't completely sleeping, so I could say it was a sort of Night Terror :/ Everything I tried to think about, then the monster appeared...it was really strange, because I never found him scarying from his appearence XD
I get that from time to time too, where the nightmare just won't stop, you wake up for a moment and fall to sleep and it continues, then you wake up again and try saying awake a bit longer but it does no good, the nightmare continues. It's not until you stay up for a good 20 minutes that you finally rid yourself of it. I've had those sorts of nightmares for years, even ones that get started before you even close your eyes. Those can be a bit creepy.
This wolf monster pretty much did all that strange sleep disruptions, and it reoccurred for a while too, I'm not sure how long but enough that when I recall my old noteworthy nightmares this one is the first to come to mind. It's actually 1 of just 2 nightmares I'd actually pay cash to have again. Though I think in a nightmare state this beast could still scare me. But it's not been in my nightmares since then.
Wow, this looks SUPER cool! o: I think it's about time I watch you, ha ha. <:
I really like the concept here! ^^ The "skirt" and knife kinda remind me of Pyramid Head/Red Pyramid from the "Silent Hill" series, but the wolf creature... man is that so original! I especially like its muzzle, as it's so supernatural to see on a wolf... reminds me more of like the snout on a gar fish (compliment by the way, ha ha)!
Seriously, I overall adore this picture! It kinda has this video game atmosphere to it, like you could be playing a game and have this all of a sudden pop up (IIIII'D BE RUNNING THE OTHER WAY). I sincerely applaud you!
Thanks I'm happy to hear you like it so much. Yes this creature does have the feel of Pyramid head, a lot of people think so, however this character predates it by quite a bit, though this render of him is relatively new. I've got a really old render of him from a long time ago uploaded in here somewhere, but theres more of this big bastard on the way and related monsters, hopefully a lot more creepy, but we'll see what I can pull off. Yeah I'd love for this beast to be in a video game, if I had the chance to get him in one I'd totally take it.
Yeah I hear that a lot with his character, but he actually predates pyramid head. I have old art from the 90's with this and other related characters. But pyramid head really is among the cooler antagonists I've ever encountered. Someday I'll probably do a piece with him in it.
