The monster I painted today is called a wendigo. It is in the myths of the Algonquian people. One version of the myth states this scary monstrosity was once a human but because he tasted the flesh of another man, he was warped and twisted into this creature and now hunts and eats the living. It has described with ‘desiccated skin’ and ‘bones popping out of the flesh’. A terrifying creature for sure. I want to give it a ‘undead’ look but not be gory.
A super quick illustration I did for the Ugly Truth Contest which I had to have in by midnight tonight, so I procrastinated to the last minute to do it. The reason I resisted is that I’m not to fond or good at macabre artwork. The submission of this painting I send to Ugly Truth has a mouth inside the mouth. I liked the original better so I uploaded this to the blog instead. There is so many great submissions, don’t think I have much of a shot this time due to the lack of macabre in my painting and that I didn’t have time to color it. That’s OK though, because it was fun regardless. And it It was my first time I ever entered a contest. I will be entering more contests in the future

Home has a great story, in fact the story changes depending on which objects you pick up, pathways you take, and which assumptions you make throughout the game. The game play itself is minimal, focusing solely on narrative and is much more like Dear Esther then Resident Evil. Aesthetically the game resembles a old Commodore 64 game with sound effects to match, and due to this it is very difficult to feel frightened or be in suspense. The game is terribly short and can be completed in less then a hour. Granted you could replay it a second time to see how different actions effect the story but unfortunately the story remains relatively the same throughout. Home is more interactive fiction then game, and is different enough to least check out. I would only recommend purchasing it when it goes on sale.
