A part of my innovations project where I discussed the importance of colour and light in creating a certain mood/ telling a narrative.
These drawings where made as an experiment. I wanted to see, If colouring a horror image in pleasant colours and lighting will make it more, or will it make it less scarier than the image coloured in very common horror colour and lighting schemes.
Which version do you find more effective?
(I personally believe it’s the horror colour version, but I know people who found the pleasant version scarier, proving how metaphorical our individual colour perception is).

Miscellaneous late-night monster speedpaint. No real thought to it, just made a random silhouette and filled it in.

Something coloured over Livestream. 2 hours from a traditional doodle, finished in Gimp.
This doesn’t look much like the monster in The Black Scorpion, but it looks amazingly similar to my memory of how the dianoga appeared in the nightmare I had the night after I saw Star Wars: A New Hope for the first time.
