"To cause an effect"

As the title implies… I think I ended up causing something on people. Usually I get this effect when I write so I wasn’t sure I would be able to do the same with images. Don’t know if be surprised or frightened.

I had a bad nightmare that I decided to twist and modify so I could turn it into something useful (in this case: art) and promptly fired up 3dsMAX and began modelling. After several hours of trial and error with the lights I got a nice setup and finally decided to render, then proceed to Photoshop for the “final” composition. Now, when I showed the finished image to friends and relatives most semeed either creeped out or disturbed by the… umm, ‘thing’ I modelled. Guess we all have a primal fear with doors and the mysteries they might hide behind!

Today I decided to do a second shot of the creature, which turned out to be the creepiest… Here they are if you want to take a look:

First one
Second attempt

I don’t know, maybe I didn’t suffer the same effect because I know how the scene is built and what lies between the polys, etc, etc, etc (and probably because I already have nightmares with bad rendered polys and meshes that refuse to work well).
