I'll be honest... I usually don't pay a whole lot of attention to contests (Probably to my detriment) but I figured if there's even the slightest chance that my art may be viewed (even glimpsed) by Mr. Guillermo Del Toro...
Well, you can't win if you don't play, right?
So... about the actual Drawing:
The inspiration for the monster (Here on out referred to as "The Horror") is actually the mask the The Horror is wearing, hence the huge fullview size.
The mask hangs in our living room to this day and doesn't bother me anymore.
But when I was a kid? It was creepy, and was featured in possibly the earliest dream I can remember.
It wasn't a terribly scary dream; I was riding in the back of our crappy Ford Escort down the interstate as the flying mask pursued me. Doesn't sound scary? It was when I was like... 5 or whatever. (Actually that would have been a great surrealist image. Too bad I literally just remembered the details of the dream while typing this... aaaargh)
Again, not super scary, but for the fact that it is SUCH a ridiculously old dream and I still remember that I had it, that's got to count for something.
And so let's talk about The Horror itself: Needless to say I've jazzed it up, and horror movie'd it up a bit.
I took the little red ribbons that hang from the corner of the mask, and used them to wrap/animate The Horror's body, which may not have originally belonged to it. (In case you were wondering what all that red stuff was.)
I think the inherent narrative of the image is pretty self evident
Anywho, thanks for viewing and thanks for reading! : D
