    Nightmare Of The Week #5


    NIGHTMARE OF THE WEEK #5

    TOPIC:
    God Took A Picture Of His Illness On This Ground

    Rules:
    You know them by now.
    Use your own new artwork.
    Don't cheat.


    This topic is inspired by a song of a band called Ghost. Well, this is not much of a song. It's 13 minutes of hissing, rattling and ghastly voices...
    But the title of the song made me think. There is some weird poetry in it...
    I reckon this will be a disaster actually... But then again we had some complaining about horror not always being "gory and cheap" and I think it's time to make you all think about something less literal and reach within the dark part of your souls. There is something evil about it. Something creepy. Something that might be a good starting point to creating a very scary picture indeed.
    It's up to you how you aproach it. Environment? Character? Maybe a mixture of both? Think you have to make something that will represent sadness contained in those words, not nessecearily from the religious point of view.
    This is going to be a difficult one, I know. Let's think of it as a sort of the experiment. If it doesn't work out we'll move on to something else. But then again- if it works out we have a chance of creating something great here!
    I hope this makes sense..
    .

    Deadline: 20th September

    Interesting. It's like making a cover for some music album or a book. It's important not to cheat on this one: to make something aiming directly on this topic, something from inside of your hearts or from the darkest parts of your souls.

    sounds something similer by the band strife, they got a song around the same length, no lyrics or real musical instruments, just industrial sounds like cogs and chains, a few moans and groans here and there, basicly if evil had a sound, this would be it. maybe i should just listen to that for inspiration

    Band: Ghost
    Song: Hypnotic underworld 1) God Took A picture of His Illness on this ground

    That's in case someone wants to download it...but it's not that important really. It's the title that's good. Song is just a bit like soundtrack to silent hill.

    Paradoxba- I'm a big Silent Hill fan, finished all the games more then once. I wish we could create here something at least close to images from Silent Hill...Damn Japs, they are geniuses when it comes to psychological horror!

    Grim Reaper, yeah man, I second what you said about Silent Hill. That thing is just wicked and have no idea how they came up with those things. The textures and monster design, it's very astonishing. I am a fan too of the games, but never beat anyone of them so far. IMHO, silent hill is a lot scarier than the RE games. Actually, when I heard of this activity, I was thinking on doing something that matches the visual of Silent Hill We should be able too, somehow...

    Well, the thing with Resident Evil is that it plays so well and it's always fun shooting zombies and stuff but they always blow it with cheap monsters and bosses so in the end it looks like some manga-style masquerade...It might change though with next RE which introduces 'black' zombies which look genuinely scary.
    BUT Silent Hill has always been number one. Your hero wasn't a trained soldier of some non-existing special unit. It was always some ordinary bloke (or girl in SH3) who was just as scared as the player. It was scarier and deeper, because it could happen to anyone...

    God Took A Picture Of His Illness On This Ground

    Nightmare Of The Week #5

    " There is a kind of illness that dwells within. When your soul is ill nobody thinks there's anything wrong with you...but the demons inside you scream in your head ripping you apart. Then you're trying to face that sadness, that unbearable pain and you can only do it on your own, because no one else would understand would they? If only they could see..."

    Noooooo! Grim Reaper, I have a similar idea like yours! Now I guess I will try doing something different

    Nice job by the way, the ghostly being is nicely done but I think you shouldn't crop it on the last guy's face. It will be more intense if you see the face screaming in pain or something, just an idea.

    Good point Armaldon. I guess I was just being lazy as I ran out of canvas and didn't bother to enlarge it a bit
