Blacking the Soul by NatalieDeCorsair Blacking the Soul by NatalieDeCorsair
An entry for :iconknockingghosts:'s "Create a Monster" Contest

_______________________________________________

They say human can see this creature only once. Most likely, this meeting will be the last thing in life.
Blacking the Soul appears only on moonless nights. A human, who's lost in the dark of the night and searching for the light, may be deceived by the light between creature's horns.
When Blacking the Soul sees the victim, he motionless looking at he/her with cold white lights, burning in his sockets, and awaking all of his/her deepest fears.
As a result, a victim starts hallucinating, the inexpressible horror and anxiety covers him/her, and then victim literally starting begging for death, just to get rid of this.
Blacking the Soul mercifully fulfills this request, punching a victim with his flexible tail. The body will be eaten.

P.S. - a little percent of victims may stay alive. That happens when creature stop staring into victim's eyes.

P.S.S. - eyes burning white and can cause hallucinations only when creature's hunting.

Truly terrifying. Reminds of a Manticore, or a Medusa, or a Sphinx, sounds like hunting one of these would make for an epic quest. A party of heroes at its mercy, or a blind hero come to put at end to the abomination. Triumphing over fears, so many things come to mind. Haha, anyway, fantastic work.

This is terrifying...but I feel like that would be a fantastic way to die for some reason. Not as boring as a car crash or something like that! :nod:

But the other one doesnt have a skull in it, so therefore theyre different. And the bodies dont pay much resemblance to another, so all is good...
Love the background to the monster, really gives depth to it.

I really like how simple, yet complicated this creature looks like, I mean the way you drew it. I can see lots of lines and flat color, but if you take a step back you see a very nicely designed creature with convincing enough anatomy and character :)

When I read the first line of your description I though that's the Death and the light between horns is the 'tunnel' people often describe to see while dying. Nevertheless original history is also interesting. He's hunting style is very creepy.. awakening the fears part in connection with all that pain.. it must be one horrifying death :(

Really nice your first thought there =) I think when victims dying he/she may look on this light and think that it's a "tunnel"

thanks

I'm glad you like it! :D If you would like to, it would be great to incorporate this thought into the story ;) Though, if the victim is already dying, I believe he/she is already pretty much blind, having the eyes burned out, right?

The contest where I'm taking a part suggests this monster in the comic (if I win) x)
No, the burning is a metaphor, but the mind will be destroyed %)

I was fascinated by the brightness of the light between its horns and it took me a long time to figure out why, but I think it's because it looks like it's illuminating the whole picture. Shining off the creature's skull, and even lighting up the whole background. So bright.
