NIGHTMARE OF THE WEEK #5
God Took A Picture Of His Illness On This Ground
You know them by now.
Use your own new artwork.
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

I dont think its that difficult of a topic, I've been doing music to art for a while. I got an image of what Im doing for this.
"Be who you are and say what you feel,because those that mind don't matter and those that matter don't mind."-Dr. Seuss
wow, this is very open project.
Grim is this the actual title of the song? or is it called something else, becouse i would realy like to here it to get some ideas. Great topic btw, something to realy get the brain cells ticking.
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
cool i go an image brewing in my head...at least i think...O_O
Brilliant topic, and a lot of info to be had with a line like that. With a deadline for the 20th I think my slow ass might be able to participate.
Gah! I am take things to literally to even understand the topic
I'm bad at sketchbooks, have a tumblr!
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.
OMG,did u mentioned silent hill .....that was a mistake man ,cause i think i now got a perfect idea what to draw...
omg, did you also mention ghost
grim, i know this is totally out of topic, but how did you creat this thread, did you need to contact a moderator or anything?
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!
Grenogs- nice avatar! You look just like I imagined you You can create your own thread in activities section if you want without asking anyone for permision. Just click on New Thread.
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...
cheers grim, ye i thought so, does that include adding the pole then also,
Ok,silent hill is in the house,BUT...not entirely ,i hope...here mine wip....hope u don't like it ..
Grenogs- You can add poll, yeah, ask Manuel for more details on polls.
Paradoxba- Of course we DON'T like it! No, but seriously looking good so far!
thanks grim, much appretiation.
Paradoxba interesting image, but im not quite sure what im looking at, any chance of a description later on.
God Took A Picture Of His Illness On This Ground
" 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..."
nice image grim, and very deep. very different to my idea
just a question, but can we use photo manipulated images, or photo colages?
Thanks Grenogs. Can't wait for what you and others come up with!
Yeah, go for it. I can't see why not.
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
Here's the new version...still wip
