entry for "Be Afraid 2007 Stock and Resource Contest of DOOM"

Something scary, something macabre and yet surreal.
There's no title to this one, because I feel a title would not suit this piece very well. I've spent hours and days on this particular work, and I am very pleased with the results. I also want you,the viewer,to interprete this work as you see fit; whether it be nightmareish or monstrous DOOM..whatever you see is what you see.

The most prominent stock is the eye, something I worked on to appear more real than just copy & pasted. The texture I used is merely for depth purposes to give the eye the feeling its alive and part of another world.

I hope you enjoy this work, as much as I enjoyed creating it :)

Happy Halloween :pumpkin:

as to fixing the unfinished quality... just center the eye in the image... Simple as that... Crop the sucker just above the discolored rift at the top of the pic.

This is, again, making me feel self conscious about my own entry into this contest, lol. but I like this a hell of a lot.

Hey mate!
First of all this image is really creepy in the surreal way. And I do like this impression. But after a while another feeling came to me that the composition might be too minimalistic. I think that it lacks some other object somwhere in the top however I cant say exactly where and what sort of an object.
The details and blending are very nice. Reflection is realistic so are the shadows. On the other hand I dont understand why have you added this blur as for me it adds some unimportant dynamism. I would keep it static.
I like the colouring and use of textures. I find it skillful.
About the idea: I've read recently that by creating horror-like image artist expresses his own fears. That might shed some light on it. However I would stick to the first impression's idea of looking in the two directions at the same time.

for days on days, i would add something in the top half.. nothing seemed to work, so i decided to go minimalistic. maybe would leave room for more mystery.
the blur is unmistakenly impossible to fix. *hint,hint*

Pretty Damn Sweet.
Loving it.
Especially because I have never seen, heard, or thought of such a concept.
Very cool.

Kind of freaky, but I like it.
