The Greeper by sodeni The Greeper by sodeni
I had a recurring dream as a child about a mummy my father said used to live in his attic when he was a child. I never saw its face in the dreams though. I'd always wake up before it got that close to me. To get to the attic, you had to go through a long dark closet and there was only a dimly lit light bulb hanging halfway in. All the way at the back of the closet was the door to the attic. It was terrifying as a child.
Years later, a friend of mine made up this character called the Greeper. It is a skulking, elusive and vicious creature that prefers dark spaces. For some reason, I tied the mummy and the Greeper together into one being.

When you are old enough and pissed off you take your baseball bat and walks to the place that has always scared you as a kid and dare the son of a bitch to appear so you can beat the crud out of them!

Sounds quite horrifying.  Looks even scarier.

Yipes... mummy in the closet. That's a monster that doesn't often frequent that particular haunting place, but I can imagine how disturbing the thought of that potential monster would be. You did a great job translating your fear into this particular piece here, sodeni - very chilling indeed. Love the muted colours, really makes the greeper here stand out even more...

Keep up the great work, eh? =D

This is really creepy and well done, and I like the composition too. Mostly I like the way you made his skin seem so real though.

Thank you for voicing my fears. As per usual, I regret delving into the dark that is my psyches. Yet, I cannot resist the ever-lasting pull of horror. I am mostly grateful of my surprising willpower at not staring at this for another hour, until the light reigns in. I have, most unfortunately, spent another night in fearing the subtle, yet not, things that hide within it. I suppose that is what you get when you where bottle-fed horror movies. Before you begin to question my educated message, I will inform you I am an unprofessional writer. I give you a hat at your bravery, and I do quite feel you deserve the first prize, this coming from a mouth whose eyes have seen many entries. Of course, the over-used, but gratifying saying: Great job :D
