!!!!!!!ALL THINGS DARK, KREEPY AND HALLOWEENY!!!!!!
WHAT frightens you? (dont tell anyone I told you but for me its homicidal clowns, anything that messes up peoples eyes or air conditioning vents--- yeah you heard me right- its a long story) What is your favorite creepy crawling, fear inspiring setting, what was your scariest ever constume or mean evil prank--- in essense what deep dark thing embodies scary halloween to you?
Show me in your visual medium. Looking for entries be they drawing, digital or physical paintings and the ever beloved photomanipers. This leaves plenty of interpretation for you artists... could be a walk down a creepy corridor, a monster under the bed or a good old wolf out transformation from human to monster. Dark, Surreal, even bloody gore all have thier place in any good halloween ho down so they have thier place here.
Clarification/Disclaimer due to an email I recieved- this contest isnt about spirituality but more of a movie monster, racing hearts and screaming in terror- what creeps people out event. hehehe I am more interested in a good booga booga scare or even a deep evil emotional unrest. as long as its fits into the halloween theme. I am completely uninterested in making a political statement or condoning any religion over any other.
ONLY 3 ENTRIES Per Person
MUST USE my stock as main subject- not just slapping one of my props on as a sideline and passing that off as good enough) use of people stock will get you more points than use of prop stock- THOUGH if you make one of my props the main focus and turn them into an actual character thats another story and gets full credit
