This is by far the most innovative and influential piece, to me personally, among all the entries for this contest. Though I do not at all fancy so horrific pictures of monsters, this one has something that grab my attention and lock my eyes.
The idea is what should be most admired. The creature's appearance is truly original. No needs of multitude of spikes or tiny crazy eyes, no needs of spooky jaws or terrifically long tongue, no needs fire breath or roar full of wrath. Just 'normal' body, and only one unusual feature.
This creature doesn't do anything, or 'she' doesn't HAVE to. 'Her' appearance is already more than enough to send a chill down the spike of any child, or even us, who may have grown out of childhood fears.
One more bonus for viewers is the emotion(s) shown by 'her' face and the atmosphere surrounding her. It's not mere horror. There is a faint trace of sadness, of nostalgia, of tiredness, and even, though most fade-away of all, believe it or not, a speck of friendliness.

Wish all who dare to stay and admire don't have to meet her in your nightmare tonight...

This is amazing. Looks so realistic with the skin and shading. Its just completely creepy. The lighting, the pose, the background its very intriguing. Makes you get lost in this picture wanting to take in every detail. GREAT WORK!

Thanks so much! This piece was a lot of fun to do. It was one of those rare cases where I painted what I imagined.
