Out of Sight, But Not Always Out of Mind by strxbe Out of Sight, But Not Always Out of Mind by strxbe
After a bit of thinking and a lot of procrastination, I decided to enter the MAMA Scared Stiff contest!

You can find more info about it here: [link]
It ends on January 9th!

While laying in bed, even now, I'm always afraid I'll see some sort of white face staring out at me from dark crevices if light were to pass over it. Like an unseen entity that's always just out of view, watching me while I sleep. So I suppose this is a bit of a play off of that.

Hmm, I think it might've been a little better with a tad more brightness, but I guess it works.
When my monitor's set to its natural level of brightness (which works fine for dark games, etc)
this image appears a little too dark to make out. I had to turn the brightness up to 100% just
to see it. I know the idea is to be dark, but I could barely make out the face on this old CRT.
Maybe an optimized image for CRT is in order. :P

Anyway, the image does seem to have turned out amazingly & it definitely has the creep factor.
Excellently done.

OMG I hate this thing, especially with chair, sometimes I put my hat on chair and sunglasses, and then at night I can't help but think my clone is staring at me D:

well, now add to it my TV light (red) sometimes is right behind the chair, so it looks like 2 red eyes staring at me through the sunglasses D:

Oh my goodness, I know what you mean. I have a window, literally right by bed, and when I try to sleep, I can't help but feel that someone is staring at me.
