Graphite on 2.5 x 3.5 inch smooth bristol paper.
This creature was inspired by an image of a dinosaur in my book. At first I was going to put two heads on it but saw almost a face like figure amidst the body and enjoyed that idea more. I tried to make the eye to seem like it was looking directly at you if you look it in the eye. I was thinking about how subjective certain properties are today. There are generalized properties that seem to meet the standards for cute and they are not hard to establish. Scary and creepy are so subjective there aren't specific items that I can use without fail to create a scary creature... or at least none that I have found yet. For some reason I struggle with making anything scary.
Today my daughter turned a Disney Woddy toy's head all the way around. I said "AHHH" playfully. Her response (having no idea about the exorcist) was "It's just a toy mom."
So what makes something scary... other than our personal experiences. Is there something we can say will always be viewed as scary?
