I think Dragon's probably right, and it is time Sarah left the house. Fear not though, next week she finally does :)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanpaku ... how much creepiness, in Eastern cultures as well as Western, can you pack in to 6 frames?

Reply skyangel, May 17th, 2016, 3:09 am

@ohanyname!: Haha I really don't like to look that closely in the mirror any more. ;)

@skyangel: I just made funny faces in a mirror for several minutes to see if I could make sanpaku eyes (most people can't - even if they have really big open eyes) and then saw the reflection of a twin who had been silently watching me for I don't know how long.

They've long suspected that their Papa is not entirely right in the head.

That song just makes it so much creepier

Reply skyangel, May 17th, 2016, 3:11 am

@Hooper250: That song is one of my favourites, mainly just for the tune, and although it's a hymn about Jesus the lyrics are so darn creepy I couldn't help but use it here.

Hope that isn't really a song. If it is the writer and singer are both very disturbed individuals who are deeply in need of psychiatric confinement for the remainder of their lives.
BTW the final panel is way-way too creepy for this story. Also thanx for the shout out my friend.

@Dragonrider: It is definitely a song and one I like. That's definitely the most disturbing verse, though http://celtic-lyrics.com/lyrics/309.html

@Dragonrider: I love that song! I'm not at all religious but I think it's delightful - in context, anyway! Massive kudos to Skyangel for finding such a creepy take on it!

Reply skyangel, May 17th, 2016, 3:21 am

@Soob: Yea, it's one of my faves too and I've always loved the tune especially as it's so jolly compared the rather creepy lyrics. I think in a way the lyrics illustrate how any passionate belief in a an external entity, either good or bad can reach a point where it starts to sound worrying.

@Dragonrider: I keept the panel small for that reason and I even did a noise filter over it as well when I showed Becky the effect I was after but she made such an excellent job of colouring it in diff shades of red I decided to go with it as it is. The original art is three times larger!
The song is actually a hymn about Jesus called 'Lord of the Dance' lol

No sleep tonight for me.

Reply skyangel, May 17th, 2016, 3:23 am

@Linn: Sorry *hugs* It is the only time we'll see a scene like that though. To make up for it I'll bring back the scarecrow. ;)

Reply erzadel, May 14th, 2016, 1:22 pm

Okay. I think is my favourite page ever. I think it's beautifully done! Damn, It's so good

Reply skyangel, May 17th, 2016, 3:27 am

@erzadel: Hiii and thanks. I didn't exactly intend it to be a fun one as it's aimed at creating a tense atmosphere surroundine same time the idea of us moving across the room towards the girl and seeing her 'soul' seemed a really fun idea.

I stand by my comment from "The dark at the top of the stairs".

Holy...! I have to imagine Michael Flatley bouncing around so I can get some sleep tonight!

Reply skyangel, May 17th, 2016, 3:30 am

@Aida: Haha I love that show!! I have the original on DVD and CD too.I love everything about the show and when I watch them dancing it always makes me want to join in!

Reply Mel (Guest), May 14th, 2016, 9:41 pm

It's letting me post as a guest again!

OK, for a moment I thought the song was Shake it out by Florence and the Machine only because of that one line,"It's hard to dance with the devil on your back." I have Florence and the Machine on my mind. xp

Another creepy page. I love it. Once you are done with this comic, you should seriously consider working on a horror comic. I know I've already said this 2 or more times already in previous comments I've left but I can't stress it enough. You're really good at setting the right mood.

@Mel: I've always been drawn to creepy stories and I did some short pencilled stories when I was at art college, normally only about 4-6 pages long each. I started inking them up after I had a good response from this comic in the early stages but als always this felt like it deserved the most attention. I will finish them one day though!

Great job portraying Laura's rage and psychosis. Given the childhood she went through, I'm not surprised that her soul ended up being so tortured. Or is this just the rage and psychosis that Sarah is projecting on her in the dream? (Nice "Rosemary's baby" reference in panels 1 and 2) :D

Reply skyangel, May 17th, 2016, 3:41 am

@fallopiancrusader: Wow you got the reference!!! lol *pins Gold Star on* I didn't think anyone would pick up on that. I won't say any more hehe.

One of my favourite hymns gets the Stephen King treatment. I mean this strip could be something out of 'The Shining.' Especially with last frame looking like a vision of Hell . . .

This doesn't bode well for Sarah and Lucy's relationship. Although, "Hey, Lucy. How about next time we make it my place?" Might be an idea.

Reply skyangel, May 17th, 2016, 3:51 am

@Fruitbat44: I don't think Sarah will be in too much of a hurry to spend another night here for sure! lol I love Stanley Kubrick films, he was an amazing guy, and I always like David Lynch's style of setting scenes and it was even in my mind to have a pair of red curtains behind her instead of a wall!

To Whom It May Concern: Sorry if I rained on everyones parade with my comment about the lyrics. All I can say is they remind me of the scene in the first Batman Movie where the Joker, before he got his chemical "facial", had just killed Bruce Waynes parents. He looked at young Bruce and said,"Did you ever dance with the Devil in the bright moonlight?"
