He Lies Here by Maglot He Lies Here by Maglot
Just a crazy idea I had one night. I really like the style of Stephen Gammell, the artist responsible for ruining my childhood with his incredibly frightening illustrations from the "Scary Stories to Tell in the DarK" books. I don't know where I got the idea of the corpse pointing off-camera, but it sort of creeps me out. Hurray for creepy stuff!

This certainly does look like an illustration from the book, and I'd expect that sort of title from one of the books as well. Excellent work!

Reminds me of both the Scary Stories book, and the sign pointing to Halloween Town in Nightmare Before Christmas

Awesome sauce. I love those books. And this does a really good job at capturing the feeling of the illustrations. I think the contrast should be higher, and the blood should be pitch black rather than red. But other than that it's just awesome.

AND i like how the only color in contrast to the picture is red. It makes you want to look closer therefore getting creept out more (thats a good thing). (maybe its me though lol) it makes me wonder what happened? what did he do? alll-in-all very awesome.

It's not what he did, it's what's being done to the next victim. This corpse is being used as a marker, or more like a road sign. The real horror lies beyond the picture.

Yeah, I remember those books (in fact, I have all three of them!) The illustrations are still hard to look at! Uhh...

Reminds me of 'Treasure Island' with the skeleton pointing the way to the treasure or the opening scare of a horror flick

First thing I thought when I saw this was Lilith from Evangelion. Weird .~. You're right, though, this is delightfully creepy >:)
