The Owl Princess And Her Night Terrors by AngelaRizza The Owl Princess And Her Night Terrors by AngelaRizza
When I heard Del Toro was judging a contest on Deviant Art I was like.... omfg YES! So here's my entry for the DevArt Scared Stiff contest. When I was a kid I had a very active imagination and I translated such experiences into this piece. Here is a little girl, she had crowned herself the owl princess of the backyard and would save her toys from the vicious swamp frogs and turtles that inhabited it. Then, at night these self created characters would come to life in her dreams and turn into nightmares, seeking out retribution and vengeance. So eventually, every creak and bump in the night would scare her into thinking she was going to be attacked. Until one night...

Done in ink, watercolor, and digital.

Prints available

At first I thought this was based off of Pan's Labyrinth (another Del Toro movie) because of Ophelia's first task with the toad. XD

Lovely work, the colors are great! ^^

I love that movie! I was thinking though more Godzilla and his monsters though for this one, I loved playing with them as a kid but at night when they sat around my room they'd creepy me out when I was trying to sleep. I want to make a Pan's Labyrinth piece though soon, finishing up some Hobbit fan art right now.
