Automatonophobia by CanisAlbus Automatonophobia by CanisAlbus
I was going to submit this as an annual Halloween piece, but surprise surprise, I wasn't able to do so until now. So, happy late Halloween for everyone and hope you had a good time :pumpkin:

This one was inspired by The Halloween Theme Song from the movie of the same name.

And in case you're wondering what that mouthful of a word means, Automatonophobia is a fear of anything that falsely represents a sentient being, like dolls or puppets.

That looks so creepy, but at the same very Gothic and awesome. I love the shadows and the expression. Nice job. :)

OMG, this is fantastic! So well detailed ;w; The whites of the eyes, the teeth and buttons add amazing contrast to the darkness of all of it!!

*kuuntelee musiikkia* kyllä, toimii kuvan kanssa ja tämä olisi jopa pelottavampi vastus halloween elokuvassa kuin Michael Myers.
Oh, nyt tuli kovat inspiraatiot kaikkeen mekaaniseen. Kaunista tyylittelyä tussien kanssa! Suosikki siani tässä ovat kyllä nuo harottavat sormet ja silmät. <3
Tuli tästä heti mieleen: oletko koskaa tutustunut Midnight Archiveen ([link])? Jos et niin suosittelen kurkkaamaan. : D

Love the details and the grungy background, as well as how stylised this is - I must also admit that I'm loving the little touches of the stitches along the centre of the muzzle! :love: :heart: :clap:

Asdfghjhjkkl tykkään tästä oikein erityisen paljon! Mun mielestä tussaus on onnistunut erityisen hyvin varsinkin siivissä ja noissa naruissa - voin melkein nähdä Radonin räpistelevän ja sätkyttelevän raajojaan nuken tapaan, hui. Oh, mutta eniten tykkään värimaailmasta! Harmaa on juuri sopivan sävyinen ja se tuo kivasti mustat ja varsinkin valkoiset(jotka muuten ovat myös onnistuneet tosi hyvin) kohdat esiin, purr.

....TULIPAS NYT ANALYYTTINEN KOMMENTTI hahah! Mutniinkuitenkin, tiivistettynä työ on yksinkertaisen upea, mutta toisaalta niin yksityiskohtainen että tätä jaksaa katsoa vaikka kuinka pitkään. Tykkääntykkään, kovasti!

I really like the style of this, and those paws! I have had a thing for paws like that lately, with the dark spotty fingers and claws, it looks awesome :'3 Very sinister/creepy feel, I love it
