THE WATCHER IN THE DARK by AlexanderLevett THE WATCHER IN THE DARK by AlexanderLevett
To all of you who enjoy my work I am re-entering my artworks into the competition and would be greatly appreciative to all of you to look at my work again as all of your favourites and comments have been deleted when my work was removed. I like to get back to each and every one of you who honour me for taking the time to favourite and comment on my work and look through your galleries to reply in kind, thank you. To those who are interested I wanted to experiment with this competition by taking a base photograph and drawing directly over the top, adding the lighting the phantom and the smoke as well as to heavily edit the base photo. I have edited all photos to make the subject unrecognisable. All of the references used as a base belong to me and were taken for this contest.

WOAH~ I love that phantom's facial features (well, what's left of them, LOL)! And that spread-open hand--great pose. How did you decide on using that image for whatever's on TV? It fits the whole theme, I love it.

Thank you so much. The image on the television is from a photograph I took of a ruins in Wales and thought it would be appropriate.

Thank you again, it became an enjoyably dark creation.

It interested me especially because it WAS dark. I don't ordinarily think of getting lost in a story as being a dark thing, unless the subject matter is horror, or true life horror. But your picture evoked the feeling that there is something scary in the loss of ourselves, the relinquishing of power that happens when we are caught up in someone else's vision. I don't think I would have looked at it quite that way without your visual representation of the idea. Nice work!

The power of a well written story or strong visual concept can transport you to whole new worlds. They can purvey innumerable emotional reactions and infinite possibilities. Thank you so much for your thoughts and appreciating my work.

WOW! This is really cool! I wish it was touching her somehow, but even though the phantom is creepy, I like how you add a balance in it, putting the girl asleep, so she's not even a bit aware of the danger around her. I like it! XD

The whole, what is there when you sleep was my inspiration and I was tempted to have it touch her.

This is really cool. It kind of reminds me of Paranormal Activity. All of your artwork is just fantastic.

I was going to say I was sad because now I have two that I consider the best of the contest, but then I realized they were both from the same artist. -giggles-
