Lusus Naturae by Erebus88 Lusus Naturae by Erebus88
As a child I was always terrified of monsters coming up from the basement and especially scared of them nabbing my heel just before I get off of the last step on my way up. So in the spirit of this, here is my entry for the contest and something that I probably would have believed in as a kid coming up from the depths and chasing me... Click twice for the full view :) the other ones aren't as clear for some reason

Oh my God that is terrifying, what an awesome monster, I love the fact that it's based on a childhood fear they are often the most potent. You just have to look at some of the best movie based on those fears, such as 'Don't be afraid of the Dark' and 'Mama' of course.

Anyway I think you've done a brilliant job here, defiantly one of pictures I seen on DeviantArt in months, well done.

Oh my, I felt exactly the same when I was a child, even until i was a teenager >w<
Nowadays, I don't have a basement :iconteheplz:

But honestly, You did such a great job on it, I almost forgot about my fear, but looking at this and reading your description, I really felt the fear and my pounding heart again!
Yes the last step XDD

Thank you for sharing it :heart: and sorry for the long blabla XD
Have a nice day ^^

No worries, thanks for sharing your comment. Having an active imagination as a child is not always a good thing lol. I think I would be okay with no basements.

Very nicely rendered piece you've got here. The shading, perspective, and movement combined give it a very life-like quality... which, of course, only makes it all the scarier.
