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.

This is terrifying. I know I should have grow out of being scared of things like this, but really, this is so amazingly realistic that it's scary. But it's so wonderful!

Quite the creepy creation here... while not terrifying or ominous, the alien nature really adds something chilling to the overall piece. Something overall dark and wrong... the stark and gritty environs really add to that feeling as well. Creepy indeed.

Wonderful piece here, JRCoffronIII! Keep up the great work =D

I've always been afraid of things that look more like us then monsters. It makes it more realistic and the thought of something like you coming out of nowhere would scare me to death!

Okay...I love all of these semi-finalist arts, but wow...If I saw this creature sitting in a corner or even at my breakfast table in the morning...I WOULD BE SPOOKED! The contrast of the hands and that cat looking like a tumor. This is genius!
