A Phenomenon In The Woods by zabani A Phenomenon In The Woods by zabani
This is a painting for a friend in my hometown (In which I am a bout to move away from due to studies two hours away...) that I made about three weeks ago, but didn't bother to submit until now, since I needed to see if this was finished or not.

But now I am certain of it's final edit, so I might as well put it here. I also added it on FB:P

In any case, to tell the background of this motive on the painting, this is Slenderman a huuuuge internet phenomenon that had been made few years ago. Recently a couple of friends of mind had shown me a series on Youtube about this thing that was following a guy whenever he filmed himself. This was a student footage that had given me the creeps.

I tell my friend who I made the painting for, about this thing, and she asked me to paint him for her later on :XD:

From what I can gather is that Slenderman is feared by the American, Norwegians and Japanees the most in this world. (And I am Norwegian, and I know Slenderman is suppose to love blending in the forest as much as in the streets.). But I might be wrong, so correct me there if you feel like it.
But don't flame...

Anyway :iconkeali: had shown me the forum that involved pictures of Slenderman few years ago, and I kinda forgot about it until the Youtube series and Pewdiepie's LP on Slender came around in :XD:



Hopefully my friend liked it:)

I do not know who made Slenderman, so if you guys can please tell me, so I can write down a disclaimer?? :o

And just when I thought I would be able to sleep at night again... Thanks Ani!! D:

On the other hand, the painting looks great! I love the gradual darkness behind him. <3

Turned out that the friend thought it had lack of colors :P But I am looking out for someone who might be interested :P

I thought it the same way, one cannot always use too much bright or strong colors if one wanna make it scary :P Thank you:tighthug:
