Paranoid by larkin-art Paranoid by larkin-art
A submission for Hyaena Gallery's "the Wreckard Show"- wherein the artists have to illustrate one of their favorite album covers (with no regard, good or bad, for the original cover).
I chose Black Sabbath's Paranoid. It rocks. You know it does.

acrylic on wood, mixed media crochet border. 17 x 17".

Stock for the portrait found here- thanks, Meltys! [link]

fullview for bigness, or if you really want to see it up close, check it out here- [link]

thanks for looking. :skull:

Yet... so casual.
I swear I have seen those wormy creatures in a dream before. >.<

Whoa. Talk about dynamic. Totally did not expect this as I was scrolling down. It's not so much the elements that for some are supposed to function as a shock factor, it's really the subtlety of that expression... gets ME paranoid, like how I laugh when other people are laughing >___> it's the best way I can put it. Smashing stuff my friend! :heart:

thanks a lot, Katie! :)
Yeah, exactly- there's also the condition that the beasties really pose no threat beyond the "what the hell is this?" factor- they have no teeth an the looks on their faces aren't even exactly menacing.
but EEEWWW! you can see their little brains!
paranoia embodies a sense of threat when really there is none there (otherwise it's danger, not paranoia) that's what i tried to portray here. I like your observations. :)
