Trick 'N Treat by acidshadow
Trick 'N Treat
Now for my, I think, Favourite Halloween based creature designs. Here is Trick 'N treat. Worms. Eyeballs, Tentacles, Halloween.

I think I just described me about this time.

I obviously haven't pinned down the overall look, but I actually kind of like the idea that the main body (Treat) has light variations in legs, colour and size whilst the eye (trick) generally stay the same body-wise and vary in colours. Trick is the main form of transport and carries Trick in it's mouth. They work together to spot lone prey and bring it down.

Treat - Worm like creatures that can move fast but have limited sense (obviously they lack eyes).
Trick- Being the eyes can spot prey and use their tentacles to hold on to prey while Treat does most of the work finishing the prey. However Trick never eats much.

I so gonna try and do more these two.

These were actually done as part of this: Halloween Creatures
But I liked the two at the top so much I sorta combined them into one. 83

The idea stemmed form that blue eye stag at the bottom which I think I shall expand on. I like the idea of it being called 'Odin's stag'. some sort of creature who lives in freezing wastes and will exchange your sight for wisdom you seek most, adding you eyes to it's crystalline antlers.


I really like this little batch of creatures I did. Gonna have to expand on them more I think.

Pumkpaboo and Gourgeist by acidshadow
Pumkpaboo and Gourgeist
I must say I knew I was going to love pokemon X and Y when they revealed two new bat pokemon. Noivern and Noibat were the best. Dragon bats that look like my character shadow.

Then they showed of pumpkaboo. A pumpkin bat pokemon. While I never liked the mega evolutions for my all time favourite pokemon; Mewtwo, they were completely forgiven because of this. While it's a shame that pumpkaboo looses all it's batty looks when it evolve into Gourgeist, it's still an awesome pokemon.

So this is my little fan art with a seasonal tie-in. I also sketched a few other bat-pokemon since I couldn't resist. Still need to do a bigger picture which also includes Noivern, Noibat, Gligar and Gliscor.

Pokemon belong to Nintendo.

Hallopus by acidshadow
Hallopus
Again this is something I actually created a year ago, but never got around to uploading until now. This is a Halloween creature entirely based on my partner :iconscifer: working for the peanuts game at capcom. We had a long discussion about 'the great pumpkin' and how that could so be a pretty concept.

This is a very simple creature I designed but I really like it. It could almost be a ghost pokemon (if they didn't already make the greatest pokemon based on pumpkins and Halloween; omgIlovepumpkaboosomuch).

I like the ide athis creature steals the souls of anyone still trick or treating past the witching hour. Or stealing pumpkins. Our pumpkin got nicked on Halloween. I hope they got eaten. 83

Halloween Creatures by acidshadow
Halloween Creatures
As many of you already know, I like making creatures. And I love making Christmas creatures'. Lots of them:

acidshadow.deviantart.com/art/…

Christmas love and worms
Christmas beast then and now
Christmas Creature - Caneworm
Christmas Creature - Reinworm
Christmas Creature - Lil helper

But oddly, I've never done much for Halloween creatures. I think it's because Halloween it's too predictable for me when it comes to 'creatures'. Making something odd and alive out of Christmas symbolism and culture seems more head scratching to me. But Halloween still produces it's ideas for me. And here are SOME of my ideas. More are gonna be uploaded!

I was seriously thinking that next year I may do a few' adoptables' if people like a certain designs. But we shall have to see.

I like the bat one (naturally). I think my first sketch was better simply because the 'tail' had a pincer-like 2nd head (which was meant to be it's 'main' head).

Spider-like creature that lives like a hermit crab inside pumpkins, skulls and even a snow man decoration.

Spider cat (because of course. have you ever looked closely at tarantula feet? they look like kitty paws!)

'The Pet' - a little combination of all pets. Do you like fish, rodents, canines, cats, birds or reptiles as pets? look no further! may need to add some insect to 'The pet' to complete it.

Ghost crow- because Ghost. Crow. Spoopy.

And finally- Brain n Gutz worm. because you can't have me making a creature page without at least ONE worm on it.

Enjoy!

Interests
Yesterday I saw Prometheus in Brighton with my badger. And holy Hannah, this is now one of my top films. If you love Ridley Scott (mastermind behind 'Alien' and 'Blade runner') or just the alien films in general (especially the first film 'Alien') you'll love this film.

I saw many bad reviews and it's down to a three things:

1) People expected the film 'Aliens' not 'Alien'. There is a difference. 'Alien' is the first one by Ridley Scott. It's slow, suspenseful and both dark and beautiful. The second film-'aliens' was by James Cameron and while a fantastic film, it's the almost opposite of alien. Faster pace, more aliens, lots of action and there is less of a feeling isolation and mystery the first film had. So a lot of people went in expecting an action sci-fi film, and while Prometheus does have a lot of action, it's slower than most action films. But honestly in comparison to the film 'aliens'? The action begins around the same mark in both films so I can't see what people are complaining about. Ridley Scott just combined both films.

2) People didn't like the amount of questions left unanswered. But frankly, this film is exploring an aspect not many people asked in the first film 'who is the space jockey'? Ridly Scott himself said when alien came out in 1979, no one in interview asked about the other alien in the film- the pace pilot with the massive hole in his chest. This guy: images.wikia.com/aliens/images…

This film is not just about that guy, but questions of humanity in general. You'll be left with the questions you should have asked the first time you saw 'Alien' – who are they? What are they? What were they doing? The questions make you feel as lost and confused as the crew. In that extent it's a very clever film and people grumpy about the questions are the people who didn't take the opportunity to explore and discuss them, which is what this film is all about.

3) Some people also expected it to be a direct prequel for alien, however Scott said while the movie will take place in the same universe as Alien and greatly reference that movie, it will mostly be an original movie and not a direct prequel. And that's the way you should approach this movie. Related but not a direct prequel. Enjoy the masses of alien references and the once again use to H.R.Giger designs but keep an open mind. I'm a massive alien fan and I still loved this new spin.


I very much enjoyed 'Prometheus', the acting was sound, some people said wooden, but it's because people aren't used to subtle acting any more, and it works well. The visuals were stunning and the mystery and suspense was glorious. The gore and horror is turned down a notch to meet the 15 rating but I'm not surprised since the original alien was seen by many movie goers and its film was need to be seen by a wider audience. BUT it doesn't mean the unknowns and questions won't give you a creep factor.


If you are an alien fan go see this move you'll love every second of it. You'll spot the references and you clever clogs and obsessives like me will spot that Ridley even used some of the original concept art for the first film making it to the big screen. If you are a sci-fi fan, this is for you, it explores all the big questions sci-fi has along with the action sequences that satisfy. And if you like a film that makes you asks questions, you'll also love this film.

There are issues, but they are minor. The technology seems way too advanced when you compare it to the film 'Alien'. I felt the technology should have been more clunky and basic. And sometimes the story and acting felt a bit sporactic. This is a film that could have done with being either longer to break up the scenes focusing on the characters. In 'alien' you felt the isolation of the crew and you picked up on the personalities more. Prometheus could have spent more time leaning about the characters and focusing on their reactions to the rapidly decaying situations.

But even with that, it's still a stunning film, go see it you'll like it.

It is the queen's jubilee after all....god save the queen. >:)
