Maddies Nightmare by mattahan Maddies Nightmare by mattahan
Maddie’s Nightmare

"...the front door exploded from its hinges. Or more like the whole front wall of the house collapsed. Maddie barely saw the three dark things as they entered the house and fanned out across the living room. Within seconds they converged on her with blades, claws, and sharp teeth…”

Done for the upcoming children's novel Poguri and The Land of Nou

Going to agree with an earlier commenter and say the layout is supreme.

I love the layout of this piece. also the frozen action in which you stopped to popcorn bag in the air, it really helps to suggestion of a sudden surprise.

i love how some ilustrators just ad details and little details that makes you look clously at their art...everytime you look at it, you find more little things you miss the first time...and that's what makes this "job"wonderfull....amazing

The only thing I might change is to add a more intense expression of fear on the girl's face. Other than that, this work is perfect in every way - I really like how you portrayed the monster attacking her as a faceless machine wearing a mask. The cloud of dark smoke around them on the bottom makes them feel even more evil.

Wow, that's awesome. I love the mix between darkness and machine that you give to the creature.
Also, I've always found those masks creepy...They're the best item when it comes to create a creepy atmosphere, ya?
