Insidious by AmandaPainter87 Insidious by AmandaPainter87
What brings most monsters to life for us is watching them on tv. This poor little boy had an insidious encounter with his late night viewing. The image quite literally decides to come out after him. Gradual at first. In utter shock he stairs and hopes he's just sleepy...but the television has become a nightmarish portal.
Acrylic on canvas. Hope I have a shot, good luck everyone!!! :D

Well, that's absolutely fucking terrifying. :fear:

And it's a PAINTING, no less! Incredible, I must say. Paintings are tough.

The evil that children can learn from being virtually raised by the television can corrupt their mind. Thanks so much! :D I was thinking of that somewhat while painting it.
