Ned, thanks for the quick examples of your take on the frightening theme. About two weeks ago I started digging through my art from college because I had a hankering to start in on my work again. I hadn’t looked at my work since college in many cases, and was surprised by what I thought was crap then didn’t seem so crappy. I worked on "restoring" a couple of drawings that had gotten smeared from my few moves since an undergrad and fixing some parts that I wanted to alter. A couple of drawings I thought would be fine contributions to Project Frightening.
I am hopefully going to post a couple of creepy things that aren’t mine and one that is mine in the comments later today. Click on the thumbnails to see an enlarged view.
Study of Bernini’s Death on the Tomb of Pope Urban VIII
Box Elder, Part of the "My Icons" Series
I had to take photos of these both and adjust them in Photoshop, so they look much different in real life. The Box Elder piece is at least five feet in height, so I had to take two shots and seam them together. The Death study is on white paper, but I created the effect you see in Photoshop and thought it created a nice mood for this project. Hope you like my additions!
