Will This Suffice - Halloween 2016 by Thagirion Will This Suffice - Halloween 2016 by Thagirion
Plus Fave by LumiResources No Critique Desired Stamp by Leeanix

Here's another scene from Triangulum Resistance where Fear tries using that cloak to hide his scary features but only made things worse.  Here he tries to buy something at the Bazaar.   He pulls out some coins and says, "Will this suffice".  The vendor was afraid to take the coins from his sharp clawed hand.  And the hood does not hide his glowing eyes or sharp teeth either.  This is right before Fear loses it with everyone being afraid of him when he's not trying to be scary.

Since this one is so creepy cool I decided to make it this year's Halloween drawing too. Though the day was actually beautiful I drew a stormy sky. Perhaps the vendor saw this instead as Fear inadvertently got in his mine to the point even Fear was not aware he was using his own powers in this way.  I think this was subconsiously inspired by the Children of Bodom album cover Something Wild  images-na.ssl-images-amazon.co…
I kept thinking this reminded me of an album cover and then I remembered which one. 
One think I find funny. If someone handed me this much gold I wouldn't be afraid. He has 11 coins in his hand..

Apr 4, 2017:  Updated this drawing. Love the blue glow from his mouth in this now.  I wonder if I should change the date on my sig as well now?

Yes this just completely back fired on him.  Ha, yes that would be good. He needs to stay on the ship if it's a market run for the team.

He sure does.
Thanks yes it's does make him vanish into his cloak.  So he just can't get rid of his scary appearance.

Thank you.  Yes he's as dark as his outfit and glowing on the inside.  He's very creepy and not helping to calm anyone down. Thanks.  Glad you like the blue glow in his mouth. I think that's something nice to have other than just his eyes glowing. He's got energy within.

Thank you.  So now not only do his eyes glow inside his hood but so does his mouth which doesn't help him be any less intimidating.

Yes this is the scene.  Fear was acting normally but yes he's still scary.  Yes not being scared is best but also very difficult to do with someone like him. The cloak did make things worse. That is a frightening hand he has and to stick it out towards someone doesn't help. I'm glad you liked it. I used my own hand as a model for it.  The coins were easy. Once I made one I just duplicated it.  Yes if he starts to sense and see your fears it will not be good.  He feeds on fear anyway as it gives him his powers.

Damn, he does look very intimidating with that Emperor Palpatine-esque cloak (and now for some reason I'm imagining he'd look even more terrifying shooting lightning out of his fingers, just a thought).

Great job as always. You really brought out the fear aspect of, well, Fear.

Thanks you, but please do not compare my art to other works. Especially stuff I can't stand like star wars.  This was actually more inspired by Skyrim where I am playing as Fear.  Like these?

Fear's Conspiracy by Leeanix ElectroSfear by Leeanix

Scary Fear is a onerous.  He's a giant cell so electricity is the one power he always has because of the action potential that neurons carry.  Thanks. Well he's Fear itself so I had to show what a powerful and terrifying being he actually is. Though in this game he's trying to regain the powers he has lost.

Sorry, I did not know you were not a fan of Star Wars either. I meant no disrespect. 

Well you've certainly captured the terror and fear aspect of, well, Fear. And those two other works are also good at capturing the terror aspect of Fear as well.

Though there is something that I am curious of, I see a lot of your works of Fear having black bird wings. I am just wondering why you decided to give him avian wings and not the chiropterid wings of a bat or dragon (which are commonly given to devils, gargoyles, and all sort of terrifying winged creatures). Please know that I'm not at all implying that he'd look better with bat wings, I am just simply curious as to your you decided to not give him those kind of wings.

That's ok.  You didn't know I don't like it though I have mentioned it in some of my journals about comparisons.

Thank you.  To many anyone with the name Fear should be a frightening entity that causes others to be afraid with little effort.

Sure no prob.  Mostly it is just my preference.  I like birds so I wanted him to have feathered wings. In some cultures ravens are associated with fear and dark evil things too.  But the main reason is based on my story with my OC Gord.  When  Fear first meets Gord he finds out his two phobias are Fear of Heights and Fear of Birds.   Fear's catch phrase when he meets a new victim is "What powers will you give me tonight?"  In this case he sprouted those raven wings and Gord became his favorite victim to torment.  Here is some info on Gord  Gord Character Sheet by Leeanix

Also as I was recently talking with my friend :iconaudes: we were discussing that with bird wings Fear looks more like an evil angel too which I find to be very cool as he will be contrasted against Life and Death in my new story. Also you should know by now I pride myself on being unique and raven wings set me apart from bat and dragon winged demons. But mostly it's because I like birds.

I'll be sure to make note of that. 

No question. 

Well that does make a lot of sense. Black birds have also been known in various literature as symbols of death and darkness, such as the Raven in the Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven." 

And yes, I guess I should know by now that you prefer the more unique avian winged designs over the commonly used chiropterid wings that bats and dragons have.

Oh yes. I love that poem.  But if a talking raven entered my house I'd catch him and keep him. :XD:  I thought it was silly Poe was afraid of the raven. Ha, well a crow got into the shop at work once years ago and I had fun holding it before I let it go.

Yes I do prefer avians though they have the more difficult wings to draw.

Believe it or not, some species of Raven are actually capable of mimicking human speech very much like how a Parrot can. www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfsnHV…

It's always been difficult for me to draw avian wings. I even needed to find a reference sheet in order to fill in the detail for some of my cryptid sketches that are avian such as the Thunderbird and Argentavis.

Oh I know.  I really hope to own a non native raven one day.  I love it if they learn to talk in a man's voice because they they are so deep and frightening sounding.

Yes bird wings are hard. I need to make a tutorial sometime.  Not sure how to go about it but want to help out to show my technique.

:D Si es verdad. La idea de esconderse y parecer menos aterrador no sirbio para nada. Es asi, no pudo esconder sus caracteristicas y lo hiso mas mysterios y da mas mideo enveze de menos. Si pienso que es mejor que no la use y sea quien el verdaderamente es. Asi la jente sabe que esperar y los que valen la pena no le tendran mideo quando vean que no es agresivo.  Es verdad estas capas dan un aire de poder y mysterio.
Gracias. Si otros han dicho eso. En ingles se llama Charon y lleva a las almas sobre el rio Styx. Pero en este caso Miedo esta dando dinero no tomandolo. Y si esta pagando mucho mas de lo que debe. Como dije no se si seria mas furte me mideo a el o mi codicia. 11 monedas de oro. Wooo seria muy bueno y me imagino que compra algo barato y estupido como una parte para la nave espacial. Pero todavia se asusto el vendedor y todos salieron corriendo que ves en el proximo dibujo. Bueno no lo eh dibujado todavia pero Miedo se enojo por eso, perdio el control y uso sus poderes aterradores y por eso corrieron todos los vendedores.

Thank you. Each coin is its own separate layer.
Please do not compare my characters to other things, especially works that I consider lesser forms of fiction like star wars.  It is not even close to what the inspiration was for this. Again read the description.  My creations are unique original works unlike anything out there.

This is one of my fave pics of Fear now.  Actually the two that go with this.  Just so fun and different. Poor guy wasn't trying to be scary and it is so odd to see him trying to do normal mundane things.  Egads, yes with Gold currently at $1,300 an ounce I sure want all those coins.  I really think my greed might beat my fear if presented with this.  And since it seems he's not aware of how economics works I might be like, "Uh no actually it does not. Do you have five more coins?"  I think he'd agree and I'd be happy to sell him whatever he is after.  Yeah $15,000 i'd say he's an awesome customer that over pays.

Thanks. I think his face would be dark and shadowed but his eyes would be bright and glowing as they are the light source.   A very tempting trap. See AudeS's comment. He is right about the current value of those coins.
Thanks.  I thought it would work great as a Halloween drawing. It was fairly easy to draw but the BG and layering were a bit of work actually.  his  hand and coins are their own layer.  All scenes from the same story. I'm thinking of writing up that scene to go with all the art.

Yeah he's definitely creepy in that cloak. And it didn't work to conceal him at all. You know there's something scary under it and your imagination runs wild with scary thoughts.

Thank you.  He must be getting more powerful at this point that he didn't realize he was spreading fear inadvertently.   Thanks. I looked up Halloween fonts and found that one. Thought it fit him quite well.

Yeah he must not have known his powers were working.   Yeah because the hood is dark his bright eyes really stand out. Yes, when he holds them out like that you can see how creepy his hands are. But yes all that nice money I don't know if I'd be too afraid. I'd want all those coins.

Thanks. I looked up Halloween fonts last night and found that. Downloaded it and had to use it.  The colors are from a style I have saved from years ago.  Yes that's what's funny to me about this. I also hear his voice in my head being pretty gentle and non threatening.  Still bad over reaction to him. When Fear itself comes at you I guess there's only one way to react.  The coloring helps so much to show what is happening. Yes this does seem to make everything worse for him.  I'm not sure how I would react to this if it happened to me. I'm unsure what would be stronger, my fear or my greed.  Thank you. Happy Halloween. We have a half day today so I am looking forward to going out and having fun.

Thanks. It really doesn't help. He's speaking quietly too trying to be non threatening but he is Fear so it doesn't work no matter what.  Not directly inspired.  I knew this reminded me of some album cover and  I was glad. Wasn't sure which one and after thinking about it I realized it was that Children of Bodom album.

Yes, it's as though he were made for this holiday.
I have drawn him with sunglasses before. Funny thing is he doesn't use them to hide himself but to hide his light if he wants to sneak up on someone in the dark.  Yeah that might have been a better idea.  I'm not sure how his claws work if they are flat like human nails or if they are claws. If they are claws like a bird has he can't click them very far or he'd bleed by cutting the core inside.
