Apollonian Wight by Keithwormwood Apollonian Wight by Keithwormwood
When experiments testing the viability of tapping into the quantum vacuum for energy were performed on the Apollo 21 Lab Station, reports devolved into strange ramblings about how their conclusions were inconceivable to human minds. Before all communication ceased, garbled messages were sent to earth from the astronauts about their experiments revealing to them the "howling face of the sun." A rescue crew was violently repulsed from the station by corpses in the astronaut's space suits. Footage of the incident show ghostly images of tormented figures hanging just behind these corpses, struggling, but seemingly unable to pull themselves apart from their decaying bodies.

Reminds me of the monster in Pan's Labyrinth. I love this creature, and love the halo like appendage in the background.

Quite the horrorific creature, but I got to ask from this and the Apollonian Drop Frame. What is coming to earth that is causing all of this?

Interesting then, but given the state of the planet. I doubt there will be much resistance left, more like ruins and scattered survivors and such who won't be able to put up much of a fight.

As long as these things don't start sayying "Hey! Who turned off the lights?" they don't look to scary...though in second thought that is a lie. Bravo.

Is that spherical object supposed to be the moon or simply attached to the ghost head? Either way this is fricken awesome, just love the design.
