The Shop of Nightmares

I’m back posting again. To be honest I had this post ready to be published about 3 weeks ago, but then tragedy struck and I didn’t feel much like blogging (or anything in fact). To keep things short and from getting too depressing, I’ll try to explain how things went from enjoying the summer sunshine to absolute shock and misery, in as little words as I can. Out of nowhere my aunt dropped dead. She wasn’t sick or old or anything, she was only in her 50’s. She just collapsed one evening and died with no warnings. The day before she was babysitting her grandchildren and was very much alive, then the next day she was dead. It was just so sudden and out of the blue, no one seen it coming and left everyone in the family in a state of shock. It hard not to think like this, but its leaves you fearful that someone else might go so suddenly. On top of the shock of my aunt death, the Grim Reaper decided to be a complete a-hole and took my poor wee dog too. Granted my dog was 17 years old and it was bound to happen sooner or later, but for fring sake could death not have left my poor wee dog alone until we all got over the shock and grief of losing an auntie. I might start ranting so I’ll move on before I depress everyone.

Back to the post, before everything happened, I created this short little comic strip just for a bit laugh. It’s based on a few rather messed up trips to the 24hr supermarket I made a night. I’m not sure about anywhere else in the world but after 9pm the 24hr supermarket transforms into a hotspot for the weird and wacky. It’s pretty much a jungle in there, where all the creepiest and strangest people of the night, hide from harsh glow of the city’s neon lights. Laying in wait for someone to thoroughly creep out. Okay I might have got a little carried away there, maybe the people of the night aren’t like animals waiting to pounce, but they can be very strange. Which makes going to the 24hr supermarket when you’ve ran out of milk, bread or tea/coffee for the morning and have no option but to venture inside at night, that little more of a creepy experience. Anyway, for a bit of fun I’ve drawn a few of my strangest encounters with the late-night customers of the 24hr supermarket and made it into the shopping trip from hell. Hope you enjoy!thumbnail_EC88DA09-7A14-4FE6-921D-6A46670129D5thumbnail_DD869ABE-CB8D-4E1D-B6A0-0A042A4482ABthumbnail_58E2D403-93B6-4642-9B87-CBA948CF4558thumbnail_B24BFEF8-12EA-4A5D-A597-26D2C73D5F01

All I can say is thank god these supermarkets are well covered by CCTV and have security guards that take no nonsense. If you’ve ever had strange encounters with people in the 24hr supermarket or convenience store and would like to share, feel free to in the comments below.

The Dark Lotus Company (Part 3)

img_0403It’s been quite a while since I posted part 1 and 2 of this little chibi style animated comic. Its probably about time I finished the episode and let you all know how it ends and if the detectives find Mr Flops. Part 2 left things on a bit of a cliff-hanger, so it’d be a bit mean not to finish it. You’ll be happy to know I’ve gotten the hang of the stop-motion a bit more, so was able to get the characters and objects to move a lot better than in the last videos.

In case you’ve missed part 1 and 2 and would like to watch them, I’ll post them both under part 3. Hope you enjoy!

Part 3:

Part 1:

Part 2:

Hope you enjoyed the episode. If people like these little chibi videos posts, I’ll try to make more episodes. Just keep in mind that they take a really long time to make, so there might be quite a gap between videos. There’ll a lot of fun to make though and sort of relaxing, so I’ll probably end up making another episode even if I don’t turn it into a video and post it.

As always Thanks for reading!

I started up a Ko-fi, unfortunately this old butt can’t work out how to put the Ko-fi button in a post. So, if you’d like to show your support for my artwork and blog by buying me a coffee. Which will provide the caffeine fuelled madness creativeness needed to produce such work, feel free to check out my Ko-fi page using this link: Ko-fi.com/thethingsiveseen

The Frustration of The One Line Art Challenge

Every so often it’s nice to attempt one of these little drawing challenges you see posted all over the internet. It can be a lot of fun, watching others attempt to create art in strange and peculiar ways, then trying to create art in the same way yourself. In a kind of weird way, it can turn learning a new art skill into a really fun but challenging game (I’ll leave a little video below so you can see for yourself).

(This best attempt I’ve seen so far at The One Line Art Challenge. It’s so unbelievably awesome)

However, sometimes these challenges seem a lot more fun than they actually are and the results may not turn out as you’d like. The one line art challenge was one of those challenges, but as it’s only a bit of fun and we’re all friend here, I decided to still share my attempts at this challenge (WordPress is nice in that way). This challenge was a little more complicated than other challenges attempted on this blog, because it has a few very strict rules, which I’ll quickly explain before showing you my attempt.

Rules:

  • Your drawing must consist of only one continuous line
  • Once the tip of the pencil touches the page, it can’t be lifted until the drawing is finished.
  • No erasing, whatever marks you make on the paper stay.
  • No tagging in a friend to take over drawing when your hand gets sores (and it will get sore).

thumbnail_20181110_162712Hmm…. yeah it was so much harder than it seemed. I should probably explain this beautiful monstrosity you see before you. I started of drawing a Nightmare Before Christmas style snake, but kind of got a tiny bit frustrated with not being able to lift the pencil and went on a little rage scribble (little being an understatement). After unleashing my full wrath upon the page, I decided to turn my scribbles into a spiderweb and drew a wee happy spider.

Although the results won’t that great, I suppose if you look at things through the eyes of an optimist you could say it was somewhat successful. For one, I managed to complete the challenge without lifting my pencil of the page, so the drawing is one continuous line. Also, as the piece is a true expression of my frustration, in some peoples’ eyes it could be classed as real art. Maybe not good real art but real art all the same. Therefore, my attempt at this challenge ticks both the one line box and the art box, so technically speaking it was a successful attempt (glob, talk about flogging a dead horse).

So that was my attempt at the extremely difficult one line art challenge, hope you enjoyed this post and…
As always Thanks for reading.

The Spooky Drawing Tag

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to get a little spooky tag going (since I didn’t do a horror movie reviews series like last year). Halloween is all about the scares, the spooks and creatures of the night, so the idea for this tag is to create a personalised scary drawing. That might sound confusing but stick with me, I’ve made it incredibly easy. So easy in fact that it only has 3 rules. Let’s have a look these rules.

Rules:
1.- Draw the thing(s) you personally find scary or spooky (no explanation needed)
2.- Wish everyone a happy Halloween
3.- Encourage others to join in the fun

My hopes for this tag is that by the end, everyone will have their very own unique spooky Halloween picture. Don’t worry if you feel you can’t draw, it’s only a bit of fun. We’re all friendly here and no one will be mean about your drawing ability.

So, here is my spooky Halloween drawing filled with the things I find scary.

thumbnail_20181013_233043Petrified of snakes, freaked out by big head mascots and terrified of clowns (I think it’s the horribly applied lipstick). I also included myself because my overactive imagination spooks me out a lot. When something goes bump in the night, my mind goes straight to poltergeist, missing all logical explanations and leaving myself thoroughly spooked out.

Encouraging others to join in the fun:
I’ve opted not to have nominations in this tag, to keep it fun and take away some of the pressure that can come with tags. Instead I will leave the tag open to everyone who wants to take part. Don’t worry if you can’t draw, it’s only a bit of fun and stick people art is awesome. So, you can always draw some spooky stick ghouls, if needs be (that would actually look pretty cool). I hope you all give the tag a go and have fun with it.

Hope you enjoyed and…
As always, Thanks for reading.thumbnail_20181013_233155

Animation Makeovers!

Time to have a little fun, over here on The Things I’ve Seen. About a week ago, my niece introduced me to an app called Facetune 2. An app one can use to edit your selfies, to make yourself look stunning. But of course, if you’re like me and not really into that sort of thing, you can find a different purpose for this app. This being, messing with your own face until it looks hilarious, and amusing yourself with your brilliant creations.
After, messing up one’s own face a whole bunch of times, you may start to wonder what else you can do with the app. This is when I discovered Facetune 2 can’t tell the difference between real faces and animated faces and of course being a little messer, I decided to perform a little animated plastic surgery on a few anime characters. But you know, this post wouldn’t be as fun if I didn’t give myself an animated Doctors name, so let go with Dr Kelly Fixenfacer (Dr Nel, for short).

So, what did Dr Kelly Fixenfacer get up to? Well, let me show you with some great before and after photos of my anime patients:

Levi: Before

IMG_E0001I’m pretty sure if you’ve ever watched Attack on Titan, you’ll know who this guy is. He’s a really cool character, however one thing I’ve noticed is that he doesn’t smile a lot (like just look at his photo, he looks like his puppy just died), so let’s fix this.

Levi: After

RMRM9459There we go, now he looks like he’s just thought of a really funny joke. His transformation just wouldn’t be complete without some lippy and blush, so I added those too.

L: Before

IMG_E0004Poor L, not sleeping has given him bags under his eyes and all that sweet eating and lack of sunlight has left him quite pasty. But you know, I believe Dr Nel can help him.

L: After

TXUE5070L’s a new man! Now he’s a beautiful shade of orange, those bags are gone and his new blue hair is so less draining than his black hair. Look, he ever has a little smile on his face. Sonic the Hedgehog would be so proud of him right now.

Strange Anime Girl: Before

IMG_E0008I don’t have a clue who this character is or what anime she’s from, but glob she looks disturbing. Let see if we can fix this a little.

Strange Anime Girl: After

GTGX7573There we go, reducing the eye size, giving her a longer face and drawing on a little bit of a nose, has made her look kind of cute.

Witch of the Waste (Howl’s Moving Castle-Studio Ghibli): Before

IMG_E0009Hmm… ever notice that the slightly eviler witches in Ghibli films, tend to be a little exaggerated (not that this is a bad thing. It makes for some very memorable characters). Yubaba (Spirited Away) for example has a massive head and the Witch of the Waste (which we have here), has so many necks that I’m not ever sure if she has a body. For curiosities sake, lets see what she would look like if we made her less exaggerated.

Witch of the Waste (Howl’s Moving Castle-Studio Ghibli):

NUOT2364Hmm… she kind of looks like the witch from The Little Mermaid, now. Who would have ever guessed that.

Lord Cob (Tales from Earthsea-Studio Ghibli): Before

IMG_E0011Aww… this poor soul doesn’t even have eyebrows or eyes for that matter. Actually, this character is pretty terrifying, but I think Dr Kelly Fixenfacer can make him look friendly and approachable.

Lord Cob (Tales from Earthsea-Studio Ghibli): After

PNIA6800Now, this is so much better. Closing up those eye holes, drawing on eyebrows, smoothing out his wrinkles and giving him a beautiful smile, has made him look so much more approachable. Now he doesn’t look like he wants to devour your soul, but wants to give you a friendly hug. His transformation wouldn’t be quite complete, if I didn’t give him a new hairdo, too.

Hopefully you’ve made it to the end this post without passing out, from laughing too hard at my creations. Scary thing is, Facetune 2 is a really simple app that even a child could use. Granted, it took me a while to manipulate the photos to look like this, but you can still imagine if someone really wanted to, they could easily use this app to completely alter their appearance in photos and deceive people. Anyway, putting that scary thought of the back of your mind, I hope you had as much fun reading this post as I had creating it. If you’d like me to improve (or mess up) the face of a particular animated character, let me know in the comments below.

As always Thanks for reading!

The Thing in the Apartment (Short Film)

thumbnail_ec2a1929-a644-48f3-bc04-53efa6494674It’s not too often you come across a horror film that is genuinely terrifying, let alone a short film. Being less than 10 minutes long, The Thing in the Apartment still manages to give you Goosebumps and leave you a little afraid of the dark. It has been a while since a horror movie has scared me this bad, so I’ve decided to give The Thing in the Apartment a review of its own.

The Thing in the Apartment, begins with Sam getting a phone call from her friend (Lindsey), asking if she can come pick her up, because something happened in her apartment. Sam, being just a good friend, goes picks the frightened Lindsay up. However, in true horror movie idiot style, Sam decides it’s a good idea to go check the apartment out and as you can probably guess, things take a bit of a horrible turn from here.

From the offset, this short film is very creepy and gives you a really uneasy feeling. As the film progresses, it gets a lot more intense and is filled with jump scares. Leaving you very on edge and praying that nothing messed up, jumps out and grabs either of the characters. Having 5 jump scares in less than 10 minutes, this film will most likely send your heart racing (not the best if you have any heart problems) and have you cuddling your blanket for dear life.

As for true scare factor goes, this film feeds on the fear of the unknown, the unseen and being attacked while alone and/or helpless. So, anyone that has experienced sleep paralysis, has had the feeling something sinister watches them or feels uneasy when alone or in the dark, will most likely find The Thing in the Apartment absolutely terrifying.

The down side to this film is that the acting is not the greatest and it has a lot of stupid moments that makes no logical sense. Like, entering the apartment when there’s a suspected creeper inside and walking about in complete darkness. This made things slightly predictable and takes away some of its fear factor.

Overall, considering The Thing in the Apartment is a short film, I would say it’s worthwhile checking out, if you’re a lover of horror. Although, the acting isn’t great it still manages to leave you feeling very creeped out and wanting to sleep with the lights on. If you fancy a quick scare and have 10 minutes to spare, I’d recommend giving The Thing in the Apartment a watch. As I’m so nice, I’ll even leave a YouTube link to this film, somewhere in this post.

Silent Hill (2006)

thumbnail_8559fdf1-ae0c-4fd7-bae7-16a2433aa6f6Rewind back 10 years+ ago, where a young and daring 13-year-old me, thought to herself. “Hmm… I’m incredibly bored and no one else is awake. I know what would be fun. Watching horror movies in the dark by myself.” After sneaking downstairs like a ninja, quietly raiding the DVD cupboard and hightailing it back to my room, with my goodies (so not to get caught roaming the house at night). I decided Silent Hill would be the perfect movie for this little horror fest, I was holding in the darkness of my room.

Long story short, this was not a good idea and I scared the muffins out of myself, so bad that I couldn’t sleep. But, what does that have to do with this post? Well, it’s been over 10 years since I first seen this movie and I was curious to see, if it was still as scary as I found it back then. However, before I answer that, let me tell you a little about Silent Hill’s story.

The main character, Rose is worried sick about her adoptive daughter (Sharon), sleepwalking and having night terrors. The child’s dreams are being plagued by a town called Silent Hill, which leads Rose to think, that bringing Sharon to Silent Hill would rid her of the nightmares.

After making a dramatic entrance into Silent Hill, Rose and Sharon are separated. Rose searches the town frantically for her daughter, but soon realises there is something very wrong with this town. After experiencing, what happens when darkness falls and terrifyingly warped monsters come out to play, and after meeting the religious cult of witch hunters, that occupy the town. Will Rose ever find her daughter and will she learn the chilling secrets of Silent Hill?

Chibi Pyramid Head

All I can say is, “wow, horror movies sure have come a long way since 2006.” However, in saying that, Silent Hill still manages to be creepy as fudge, even if the monsters look incredibly fake and computerised. The acting is also bit monotone at times, particularly with the character Rose (it was like watching an emotionless robot, at points). Luckily, the storyline and its generally creepiness in enough to forgive the acting.

By today’s standards, Silent Hill is still a pretty good horror movie. It maintains a real eerie feel, that keeps you slightly on edge the whole way through the film. Even when the wallpaper isn’t peeling from the walls and there isn’t a horribly mutated and charred monster on the screen. But for me, the best thing about this film was the storyline. It really sucks you in and keeps you wandering, in suspense about what the fudge in going on in that town. As well as exploring some of darker things in society, like mob mentality, mass hysteria and the idea that people are more likely to partake in horrible inhuman acts, when in a group or/and they fear being shun for not partaking or for speaking out. This gives the story that real twisted feel, that can make horror so interesting to watch.

Overall, Silent Hill is one of the better horror movies, I have seen. Despite the acting being a bit dead at times, it still had a suspenseful storyline, with some depth. Silent Hill was also very eerie and its monsters, looked like they were straight out of a nightmare. Creating the real horror movie feel. I would definitely recommend Silent Hill to lovers of horror.

Rating: 3.5/5

To answer the question, I posed earlier. 10 years on, did Silent Hill still scare the muffins out of me?
Thankfully no, it just mildly creeped me out.

Something Special for The First Post of The Year.

It’s crazy to think this is the first post of 2018, so let’s start the year of with something special. But first let me introduce you to my new brushes.

thumbnail_20180101_170949These are by far the softest paint brushes, I’ve ever felt (they actually feel like silk. It’s amazing). I have big plans for these brushes, so prepare for something spectacular in the near future. (Just have to learn how to draw and paint first. Maybe prepare for to see something spectacular the far near future).

thumbnail_20171208_171159Right, back to that something special. I drew this quite a while ago (back in August, I think) and never really had any desire to add colour. That was until, I got those new brushes and really wanted to try them out on something.
By the way, recognise anyone in the drawing? If you don’t. Not to worry, I posted the Without a Bubble series months ago and it’s very hard to remember back that far. If you do recognise Malice Eleos, the faceless rag doll demon wearing a suit, that’s so awesome.
(As for the hooded guy, that’s Odious Flidais. He’s from a set of illustrations I’m currently working on and have been working on for a while. If they turn out anyway good, I might share them with you all)

thumbnail_20171208_171349Well, here it is. The something special I wanted to share with you. All coloured up and looking well. As well as a sad and creepy painting can be, at least.

This is the favourite piece I’ve created so far. Hope you like it and thanks for reading.

District 9

thumbnail_83643c4b-a6e6-40f8-b991-bf8e716d2d7cI’ve been asked so many times if I’ve seen District 9, that I finally became curious enough to check it out for myself. Usually films about giant bug aliens, is a no go for me. Normal little bugs make my skin crawl, so the thought of giant intelligent bugs, horrifies me to my very soul. Movies like Alien and District 9, really makes me want to sleep with a rolled-up newspaper under my pillow and a can of bug spray on my nightstand.

Curiosity got the better of me this time and I am now reviewing a film, that quite frankly made me dry-heave, a few times. But not to worry, what doesn’t kill me, makes me stronger (if insomnia, nightmares and night sweats, are the equivalent to stronger).

District 9, begins with an alien spaceship breaking down within the earth’s atmosphere. Being the friendly hospitable creatures, we are, the humans blow a hole in the side of the spaceship, to have a peep inside.

Inside the spaceship, a race of harmless giant grasshopper aliens, are found. (Later named the prawns, because no one knew what a prawn actually looked like and mistook grasshoppers for prawns. A very sad error to make, if cooking prawn rice). Being awesomely kind-hearted the human governments, decide to give the poor prawns somewhere to stay on earth. Allowing them to build a shanty town, ran by human warlords and for safety’s sake, surround it with a high spiky fence.

After 30 years, the shanty town becomes lawless and a threat, due to warlords exploiting the prawns cat food addictions. Promising the prawns cat food in exchange alien weapons. To eliminate this threat, the Multi-National United (MNU) aims to destroy the shanty town and move the prawns to a new tent town.

While giving the prawns eviction notices, MNU officer Wikus finds a strange piece of alien technology, which he unintentionally activates. Leading to him infecting himself, with an alien virus which causes him to slowly to transform into a prawn. The MNU then take Wikus away to experiment on him. However, he escapes and becomes a fugitive and must hide from the MNU, while finding a cure for the alien virus.

thumbnail_49996307-f309-4a00-927c-e1e58c19c610

What an actual giant friendly prawn alien would look like.

Glob, I feel like a crazy lady just writing that description and that’s only the first 20 minutes of the film. District 9 has a lot happening and from my description, you can probably tell, what this film is hinting at. Considering how sensitive of subject it is, I’ll save you from a lengthy interpretation of this film and just say, there’s a slight hidden meaning to its beginning.

My honest opinion of District 9, is that I could take or leave it. It makes a big flashy statement at the start, but doesn’t follow through. It’s as if the creators put all their efforts into making the beginning great, but just got a film irony template from Disney, for the rest of the film (I joke not, it the same formula used in films, like Freaky Friend or The Princess and the Frog). This didn’t completely ruin the film, it just seemed a bit strange. But I suppose the beginning of a film is important, and if a film formula works, why not use it.

What spoiled this film for me, was the main character Wikus, he just wasn’t likeable. He was a complete and utter tool (jerk) and very moronic, making him incredibly annoying. I also think they went a bit far with the grossness, in District 9. I really could have done without seeing a lady munching on a putrefied prawn arm. It just turned my stomach and made me want to turn the film off.

Despite its shortcomings, District 9 did have a few good things going for it. Mainly the design of the prawn aliens. They looked very cool, with their creepy grasshopper anatomy and were very bug like. I can really see why the prawns are so appealing, to fans of these sort of movies.

Distract 9 also plays around with some very interesting alien concepts, like alien reproduction, weapons, technology and how aliens would view the human race. This aspect of the film, was fascinating and for me, is what really saves this movie from becoming a complete loss.

To conclude on District 9, I feel it’s just another okay movie. It really didn’t excite me much. Although it had an under tone of meaning at the beginning, it didn’t follow through with this level of meaning and became rather typical of any other irony/ “don’t be a jerk or you’ll be punished” movie. It did have cool creepy aliens and some interesting concepts, but this didn’t fully make up for its irritating main character. In a nutshell, I wasn’t overly fussed on this movie and I could take or leave it. For that reason, I would rate it middle of the road.

Rating 2.5/5

Gantz:O

thumbnail_f3704dc7-22ba-45ac-afba-cb53f87f1b4eStepping out of my comfort zone again and giving CGI a go. Apparently, a CGI anime, but correct me if I’m wrong about that (Google may have lied to me).

My first impression of this Gantz:O was, why does the title look like it’s in shock? I’m kind of wondering if the :O was intentional. If it is, that’s actually very clever, considering the film has a lot of moments, that will leave you with a shocked look on your face.

In Gantz:O, those who die are brought back to life and forced to participate in the ultimate real life video game. Given high-tech suits and weapons, players must fight an army monsters in order to collect points. Once they collect enough points (100 points), players can unlock bonuses. Including superior (better) weapons, resurrect/revive a died player or gain your freedom from the game. Unfortunately, if a player dies in the game, they die in for good (unless revive by another player, later).

The main character Masaru Kato, is stabbed in a train station and dies. He consequently finds himself in the game and must fight for survival and to earn enough points, to gain his freedom and return home to his orphaned brother.

This is one of the more unusual films I’ve seen and felt more like watching a let’s play than a movie. But in saying that, the film was pretty half decent and fairly enjoyable. The story was what you’d expect from this sort of film. People kill monsters and monsters kill them. Then the boss monster shows up, wipes the floor with everyone and seems unbeatable. It’s pretty straightforward, but still had a few nice twists to keep things interesting.

I must admit, the CGI animation was kind of cool and reminded me a lot of PlayStation. The monster looked remarkably creepy and were very impressive. The players also looked, somewhat realistic and I could definitely see how the female characters would be appealing to the eyes, in their skin-tight suits. Which I must confess, I shook my head a little at. Clearly, someone put a lot of thought into designing those suits and designed them with support in mind. Those suits looked a tad restrictive, but at least there would be little chance of giving yourself black eyes, while kicking monsters butt.

thumbnail_57274364-25c3-4a40-bd87-c547f2cddd66

Bird-Man-Snake: The most disturbing monster I could think of drawing.   

I wish I could say, as much attention was given to the male characters, but they all looked like skinny aliens in their suits. It was very disappointing and very clear who that aspect of the CGI was geared towards.

Although the overall animation was impressive, there was just something off about it. I can’t quite put my finger on it. Maybe to it was just the bad dubbing or extremely expressive body language, putting me off. But I felt, there was just something not quite right, that made it seem slightly weird and off.

As you would expect, Gantz:O is very action focused and has a lot of fight scenes. Considering the players use head exploding guns, these scenes can get very gruesome and involve a lot of blood (Great it you love gore, but not so much if you’re a bit squeamish). Weirdly, the last fight scene has a bit of a terminator feel to it and gets very bright and flashy, giving it that cool futuristic look. However, in contrast with its usual dimly lit scenes, this can be a bit sore on the eyes.

Overall, Gantz:O is a half decent film, with cool visuals. If you can get past the bad dubbing, it’s actually a rather enjoyable and fun film. It does occasionally have weird dialog, but makes up for this with some great spine tingling lines like, “do you feel like you’re in the presence of a god” (deep scary voice). It also has its share of weird, messed up WTF moments, but these just add to the enjoyment of this film.

Gantz:O, has a real video game feel, that not everyone will like. Personally, I thought it looked interesting and kind of cool. Making a nice change from the usual style of films I watch. The only reason I’ve rated Gantz:O as a middle of the road film, is that story wise it was very typical of this sort of film and to me, it doesn’t stand out from movies with a similar storyline.

Rating: 2.5/5
