Grunt by charcoalfeather Grunt by charcoalfeather
Sanity: ...

An edited version of my previous Grunt portrait ([link]). The body and background were done in iPad's sketchbook app.

Part of the pattern in the background was from here: [link]

Motion blur and colour adjustments were done in Photoshop CS6. I hope the blur makes it even more reminiscent of the actual gameplay (ie. the sanity system).

Ah, that is pretty creepy :noes: Nice going with the blur, it makes me feel as if I have been stunned by this creature :stare:
What game is it from? o.o

Amnesia, lol. It's an edited version of the picture with the grey background.

Yeah, it was fun to make this! I made it during a trip to America, actually, so I was painting it while on the bus, on my tablet.

I can't draw for the love of me during roadtrips :XD:

There was nothing else to do...except draw (which was hard, since the bus ride was bumpy) and browse tumblr on my phone.

This creature looks interesting... apparently he's from a game? Good work I like the texture on the creature,  the blurred background gives a feeling of realism.  :)

Your sanity meter is low. Replenish it with Audinam.

That is very, VERY good! :D
The sanity effect is so real-like, I almost gets dizzy by looking at it. The Grunt is my favorite monster in the game. Yet I would be terrified if he came into my living room. You have talnent. :thumbsup:
Can you make a Brute? :)

I did, actually. It's somewhere in my gallery! Should be in the "more like this" section too.

Thank you for your comment!

Can't believe this was actually DRAWN. One might mistake this as an edited screencap or something.

It looks good, but it might be a bit too blurry. The blur does add a sense of horror, but always be careful not to over do things. Amazing work though.

Wow...I've played Amnesia before and this looks like it could be official art from it. It looks pretty much exactly like the Grunts in-game, especially with the motion blur to make it look like your POV is screwed up from insanity. Even the background, though it's a pretty indiscriminate green, has that Amnesia feel to it. Nice job.
