Horror Road by Mr-Ripley Horror Road by Mr-Ripley

When darkness falls,
we have been warned to stay in bed.
The horseman has never gone,
and still keeps on looking for head.



This work is an entry for When Darkness Falls Contest. [link]

My Ripley .......my... friend this gave me the utter chills!
It's eerie ,scary and it makes me thank god that I am not on that road with him! The lighting you added works well for the extreme creepy *run like hell and away from the horseman* feeling I get when I glance at it.!
The skulls on the side of the road and the birds in the trees are placed in all the right area's to give an added terror to the Horseman. I like how you added just a couple of Headstones. To me thats all that this needed and really adds to the complexity and beauty of your artwork.
Another fantastic piece of art you have created!
Good Luck in the contest!
Darkness Falls (a movie you must see..:) ) is an absolutely favorite of mine since 2003 and never has the tooth fairy been so terribly frightening and freaky. But then again there are so many ways to portray all the horrors when DARKNESS FALLS. I wish I had time to enter.It seems like so much fun in such an odd and fabulous macabre way.

Aww.. Dear Angela, thank you so much again for another wonderful, lovely and funny comment from you. I'm really glad to know how you feel with this work. Yes, run like hell and away from this road is all I want my viewers to feel. =D

I haven't seen the movie Darkness Falls yet. It sounds so scary and interesting. I'll watch it when I can find it. :nod:
Thanks for your kind wish for the contest. I guess you still have a few days left to enter if you want. :)
