I’d like to have a ghost in my house. Not an annoying one or a scary one, but an interesting spirit. On the other hand, if it meant I didn’t have to pay much rent I’d be fine with it. Zombies on the other hand is a deal-breaker. I can’t deal with the rotting flesh.
Sadly, this isn’t a commentary upon gender in our society. Rather, it’s about the scary things that go bump in the night. I really want to have someone who’ll go into the basement and see if there’s a monster down there. Otherwise I have to do it.
I just hope I never FIND anything.
You know the thing about ghosts? They’re dead. I mean, that’s a bad thing if you’re seeing them, but what about not-ghosts? They’re alive, and they could be anything.
If I saw something pretending to be a ghost, I’m running for the hills. On the other hand, if you see a ghost, who ya gonna call?
The media. Because that would be amazing!
You can’t draw monsters without doing something with them. I personally sometimes despair that I can’t make things as scary as they are to me.
But anyways: the green thing on the left is a creature of many eyes, your average nightmare. The oozing things on the bottom are The Hungry, which gather and feed on the unwary.
And now, time for a gif! This is just a small experiment in making an animation. Something creepy since Halloween is coming. Then again, Pirate isn’t very creepy even at the worst of times…
And now, it’s time to speculate: what made the Slender Man into the infamous monster he is today? My first theory: he was bullied as a child. A Slender Child if you will. And that trauma led to him seeking vengeance by murdering everyone he comes across. It’s very possible. Next theory tomorrow!
Stick people are pretty nice. They’re sort of annoying, but generally good people. This thing…is some kind of nightmare stick-creature from the inner parts of my head. Good times.
I’m not sure what terrible dreams these things came out of, but that’s definitely not our lovable cast today.
A conclusion to yesterday’s post! Don’t mess with Pirate’s friends. If this seems less happy or funny than usual…ravenous monsters that try to eat people aren’t very funny. Since they’re also hard to draw, they’ll be a rarer occurrence.
I learned about something called Fridge Horror a little while ago. It’s all about the normal becoming horrific. Like Knight’s predicament. Knight and Pirate both have swords, but they don’t carry them around all the time.
