Ok friends, it's time for a new competition :Brain:

This month you have to make a pic about "Fear"

You have to put "atmosphere" in it and, as always, you could use the technich you prefer, drawing pixel by pixel, blending images, drawing by hand and so on...

Make your best to scare the judges

You must post your entry until the end of March... or something dreadful will happen to you... Mwahahahaha...

Darkness all around. No sound. Noone near.

step

shhh ... whispering from far away ....

step

I hear a voice whisper.

step

They are calling to me.

step

light - flashing lights ....

screams of agony. where are they? I am fully surrounded by steps and whispers. Fear takes over! blinds me!

then all over a sudden - it's over ... I still hear them. they will come back ....

shhhhhhh

step

Interesting picture but not 'fearful' more abstract. We'll see if I can beat it though. Nice to see more of your skillful work posted up swiss.

Love ya :P

I agree with Sean, awesome pic, I LOVE IT, but...it just doesn't say "fear" almost though...maybe if the skull in her eye was a bit more clear...

Also: how'd you do that border? It works really well...

And just a question but...are we allowed to post gory-ish, stuff? I'l link it so its not "out there" but, are we allowed to have some? It is fear after all...

Nice pic Swiss, and i agree with Moogle and Sean, could've been a little more scary.
Here's my humble attempt:



"Be good now, it is time for your medicine. It will relieve all the pain and solve all your problems in 5 minutes."

Personally i find lethal injection to be much more scary than, say, getting shot, stabbed, hit by a car, drowning, or falling of a skyscraper. Which brings me to one question, which is off topic ( :angel: ): just why do you think nowadays they find injecting poison more humane than, for example, shooting a person ? ( i am talking about execution methods)

It's just something i thought of before drawing this picture.

I really like it, feels pretty scarry, although...after looking at it for a bit, something just seems to be "off" or missing...can't place it but...

Well, I think you can put a bit of gore in your pic... but be sure to not exaggerate, ok? All in all i think that gore is not the best "artistic" way to represent the fear!

It's not so simple to scare with a pic, isn't it?
