Amnesia - Water horror by Sayuri1314 Amnesia - Water horror by Sayuri1314
Get out of the water!

Fanart of the game Amnesia - The dark decent by frictional games.

Asdklkjhg this game is so scary. So FUCKING SCARY. I didn't even play it, I watched a walkthrough on youtube, but it still was enough to ruin my sleep for a week. Heck, even drawing this was painful since I had too look up references and got scared AGAIN. But still, I can't stop thinking of that bloody game. It's a darn good game. God, I must be an masochist or something.

I'm pretty happy with this drawing :) Even if it was painful it was also very fun to draw. I usually hate horror but apparently I enjoy drawing it, haha.

I took some artistic liberties, the wheel isn't that big in the game~

ok first of all congratulation your art force me to write my first critique ever :)
second: i really adore how you made Daniel here i mean just look at him, so full of life i can almost feel how he quickly move to get out from this room.
my my atmosphere is do gloomy and dark just like it should be
ya made marvelous contrast between dark and light places. Shading is perfect in my opinion. you got talent in this :)
and colors: i really don't know how you do tat but they look almost like those in the game :) you choose right colors.

To conclude:
This art is full of life, colors and shading are good and atmosphere mmmmmm wonderful :) good job :D

The Artist thought this was FAIR
126 out of 127 deviants thought this was fair.

First let me say that I think this is absolutely amazing! The colors and the darkness give it that dreary emotion, while the blurring around the edges to focas in the lighting and the picture on Daniel makes me feel the desperation and movement. His eyes and his expression convey the fear as he's trying to get the gate up in time, I know that it's absolutely terrifying and he seems to agree! Overall I really like this, although I feel that his nose could have been slightly better shaped, because to me it looks a bit strange. But I have to say the lighting looks like it's genuinely straight from the game, how you made it that perfect I have no idea, but you did it right!

On one more note I want to say that this sufficiently scared me! And that, is a fantastic thing! Thank you for making such a wonderful piece of art, I love it!

Honestly, I have to say.  This perfectly captures the exact feel I have EVERYTIME I play this part.  Every time.  I've played it a dozen times or more, and this... represents the level.
