BACKGROUND BLITZ: Eerie
« on: 15 Feb 2018, 20:12 »
EERIE


Images from: Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Carceri d'invenzione.

Your job is to draw an eerie, scary background. It can be anything you want, as long as it gives you (and the viewer) goosebumps: a haunted house, a ghost-infested castle, an abandoned asylum, a foggy cemetery, a dark and seedy alley, a frightening attic, or a dreadful public toilet (those things can be scary, when not properly cleaned). Or something else entirely, providing that it is scary!

Deadline: 5th of March 2018

Voting:

Concept: your background should tell us something about the place you have depicted.
Playability: does it have clearly defined walkable areas, things to interact with, etc?
Artistic Execution: does the image convey the wanted atmosphere? What's the feeling of the place? Is it scary/eerie enough? Would you pass the night alone in it? (if the answer is "yes", it needs to be scarier)

Good luck!

Anyone getting the vibe of maybe even an H.P. Lovecraftian location?

Anyway, best of luck to others.  (I'd take part in it, but I want to focus on my MAGS entry.)

Sure, an eerie, half-sunken city (complete with non-Euclidean geometry and unimaginable monstrosities inside, naturally) would be a great location for a background!

I'd take part in it, but I want to focus on my MAGS entry.
Well, the competition ends on the 5th of March, so maybe you'll be able to find time for both. ;) Good luck on your MAGS entry!

Okay, I made a quick entry for this--my attempt at a Lovecraftian setting.

Hopefully this qualifies for something...

DBoyWheeler: I love the contrast between the dark sky and the green city! I wouldn't want to find myself alone on that island at night (or even during the day (laugh)).

morganw: cool background, it looks ready for an adventure game! The black and white (with a splatter of red) is very atmospheric.
