View Full Version : A quick horror painting

06-08-2011, 03:28 PM
I just finished reading a horror novel by David Nickle called "Eutopia" and wanted to do some fan art. I don't know if I will be spending any more time on it, but I'm still interested in feedback, as it's the first thing I've painted at home in at least a couple of years.

The only thing I can think of, is the background is a bit "police lineup". Maybe some props? A door? A window? A fireplace?

Other than that, great mood!

Thanks guys. I agree about the background.

That creature she is holding in her hands, it looks creepy and interesting. Leaves a place for imagination, wishing to imagine how its face may look. Holds tension for me.

i like the texture on the wall behind her, would like more detail on her but other than that it is quite eery.

The texture´s a photograph with some brushwork on it from the looks of it. The result is that is has a way higher detail density than the foreground. It´s a bit strange that the main subject has a lower lever of rendering and detailing. The planks themselves are huge also. Personally, I´d make them smaller so they´d look like something in the real world, like a wall or fence and then bring the woman and the freaky baby up to at least that level of detail density. I love the lighting on her, so hope you´ll keep working on her.

Thanks for the feedback guys ... you may have actually talked me into turning this into a finished painting. I'll post something up if I make more progress.
