Artenstein

Efforts to prepare for this year's Monsters and Merriment are in full swing. I have a lot of Mad Science to preform if I am going to be ready to impress. Here is the very raw promo graphics. Enjoy and happy haunting!

The Nucklavee

This creature is evidence of evil fairies. He is a toxic monster that roams the roads at night assaulting travelers and damaging crops and farm animals. He comes from the sea, but fresh water seems to be a turn off for him. He is able to change his form and for some inexplicable reason he chooses this of a twisted horse and rider freak thing. Probably to make you fill your shorts. What a creep.


Abraxas

Abraxas is a strange looking demon with a very eclectic past. Many sources disagree on some major points and I felt like I was chasing my tail trying to get them straight. If you are interested in trying, good luck. Here is the Wiki page


A New Year

I hope everyone's year is off to a  good start. I have some stuff for you and some big plans this year. Lets get started, shall we? I have been very disorganized and there are many things I have made that I have failed to share with you. Sorry, my bad. First of all, this is my animated logo, that I plan, one day, to use while making videos for your enjoyment. I need some equipment to accomplish this, but we will get there.



Next, we have my green screen project from my days teaching film and animation at IADT of Nashville. Spooky fun stuff!




And last of all, we have an animatic storyboard I created for a client who never  followed through on his end of the agreement. Shocking, I know.

Native American Monsters

Given the season and the disregard for Native history. I am going to share a few American monsters from the indigenous peoples folklore.


The Baykok is a monster said to haunt the Great Lakes region of North America. an extremely emaciated skeleto-like figure, with thin translucent skin and glowing red points for eyes. It hunts only warriors and fires at them with invisible arrows, or beating them with a club. It seeks to devour its victims liver.


The Wendigo is one of the best known and most frightening monsters of Native American folklore, it has an insatiable hunger for meat and can move faster than the eye can see.
 The creatures heart is made of ice and it can completely wipe out the wildlife and people of a region as it eats every living thing it meets. The ultimate consumer and the last thing you want to meet on a cold winters night.


Sasquatch have been reported for almost as long as humans have resided and visited the north western forests of America. Known to occasionally kidnap humans, possibly for food or for more horrifying purposes. These monsters are not something you want to find your camp site.

Halloween 2017 Post 1



This was the view from the porch as the kids were leaving.

This creepy little alter was on the porch.

Wide shot of the yard just before dark.

In the garden there are many strange plants.

In retrospect, my Banshee needed more lighting.

Kazia Mason was in charge of the fogger. It looked great, when we could see at all. It was a lot of fog. lol
