Brute by charcoalfeather Brute by charcoalfeather
The Brute from Amnesia as he appeared in the Choir. I actually got killed quite a couple of times there because I was not aware he was even in the area.

Took around 3 hours in Corel Painter (oil and blender brushes) and Photoshop CS6 (for adjustments and motion blur). The light source is actually from Daniel's lamp (which is not shown, but around the height of the Brute's armpit).

Wow, that is some messed up creature :noes: It must be really painful for them to be in such a deformed state.
And I see that you wanted to convey that lurking feeling with the overall darkness :I Pretty well thought.

Yep, that creature has had its skull smashed, but if you look closely, he still has one eyeball (surrounded by teeth. Yeah, I don't get it either). 

Thank you! Yeah, it was kind of like that in the game. I was so surprised when it came out of nowhere and killed me.

That's quite a painful smash o.o

It was like "Surprise buttseks!" ~death~

They're supposed to be dead bodies of people and other creatures put together after they died and then brought to life with some magical elixir, so the damage to the head might have been done after the creatures died. 

Yeah, Amnesia had a lot of those!

Sort of like some Frankenstein experiment.

Lol, not literally...but the fandom loves to make yaoi pairings between the main character, Daniel, and the "bad guy" of the series, an old guy who is from another dimension.

Very nicely done! The Choir was the scariest part of the game to me... the computer I played it on, did something so that I had to start from the Choir Entrance again, and I had just picked up the last piece of Orb in the Brazen Bull torture chamber. I wasn't very happy to have to start all over, being scared like heck because of all the Brutes roaming in this area... I do feel sorry for the Brutes, though... it looks awfully painful with the splitted heads and the spikes in their arms and legs. Ouch... anyway, this is very nice. You did a fine job with this. :)

Yeah, this part was definitely the scariest. I actually didn't expect the Brute and was really frightened when he popped out of nowhere. He runs pretty fast too, so the first time I ran into him, I died. 

Thank you for the comments and for the watch!

You're welcome. :)
I was wondering, though, aren't the Brutes also supposed to growl or whatever they're doing before they pop up? Is it a glitch? When I had collected the last piece of Orb, I ran into a Brute around a corner, and he saw me. Luckily, I were able to survive, though - the monsters are pretty stupid, so you can just hide behind a pillar, and the monster will lose track of you really fast. That's what I did, but I was pretty much shaking after that. Man, I didn't even know he was there! He gave no signs or sounds that he was near by. :) I think we both got that nasty surprise. :D

I think all the monsters are supposed to growl before appearing (thus making the game more and more predictable/easy as time went on. Especially since monsters disappear after you hide for a while). I think I didn't hear because I was playing the game in a place where speakers weren't turned on, so that's why I died really quickly.

Heh-heh, yeah. I love this game. I haven't played "Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs" yet, though. Have you played it? If you haven't got a picture already, can you make a picture of the pig monster? :)

charcoalfeather Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, I have. I didn't make any pictures, though. I personally didn't like the design of the monsters much, so I didn't make any pictures of the pigs.

Not really, but I didn't think the game deserved to be 20 dollars on Steam. It was more like Dear Esther than the original game. Have you played Dear Esther?

The Choir... I never felt so tensed up and scared while playing a game. Kudos to the creators for making such a horrifyingly atmospheric environment.

I know, right? It was one of the most amazing moments in gaming to me. I can't wait for Amnesia 2 to be released, especially since it's also being created by thechineseroom, who made the amazing Dear Esther. Too bad the release date has been pushed to an unknown time in Q2 2013.

Yeah. I really wanted to play it last year back when I had plenty of time to spare.
Now I just hope it won't come out in my exam period, because I'm gonna be REALLY upset if it does. :P

I'm not very far in yet but... I can't tell if I like it but something in my head is telling me to keep playing it so I guess that's a good sign?
Although I have trouble playing it because I'm still getting used to the controls (like I can't sprint without getting stuck on a door or something ._.) and I have a button mashing problem when a tense moment arises too...

I had the same problem when I first started playing it. For some reason, playing the game for too long gives me a headache--maybe it's motion sickness due to how the screen often blurs and goes wonky when Daniel loses his sanity or gets too scared.

The physics take some time to get used to as well, since you actually have to pull on doors and chests with your mouse to open them. I think it's an interesting way of interacting with the game though.

I just hope I'll have better control of everything when I encounter an actual monster and not that disappearing asshat near the beginning :\

The truly good thing about this game is that it actually gave me a good idea for one of my school projects xD

I'm still not sure how to go about it. It's something I need to talk to my professor about : P

Yep. I'm going to be insanely busy this semester but that treacherous "I don't give a fuck" mentality all seniors have is starting to kick in already.

I just love the shading in this one. He actuallyy looks rather frightening because of it and the blur adds to it too. Not the most nicest sight to behold to when you wander about alone in a dark castle XD
