Erebus by dloliver Erebus by dloliver
"Not Chaos, not
The darkest pit of lowest Erebus,
Nor aught of blinder vacancy, scooped out
By help of dreamsócan breed such fear and awe
As fall upon us often when we look
Into our Minds, into the Mind of Manó
My Haunt, and the main region of my song."


William Wordsworth

A little rough in some areas but quite happy with it. Might add a little more detail later. Had fun with this.

Not sure why he turned up. I dont even smoke.

Love the picture... i really do... but he reminds me of a character! XD
"Filthy brown acid rain
pouring down like egg chow mein
Slime beneath me...slime up above
Ooh you'll love my... toxic love"

Jeeeeeez. This is probably the best thing I've ever seen on DeviantArt. Your whole gallery is just absolutely mind-numbingly amazing, bro. I mean that.

From Ferngully. Great movie, I recommend you watch it if you haven't already. Google Ferngully, Hexxus; the pic of the skeleton creature is what I'm talking about.

0_o...Wholey-moley...That is scary!!! Shiver...But, it's SO GOOD!!! I love the expression; I see meanness, anger, death, but at the same time, sadness, as if he's unhappy.

I suppose it depends if you really like to cause fear and misery or if you are forced to.
