How To Create Monsters & Mythological Creatures

So one day my friend Ian Rowland directed me to the site of his friend Gianni Sarcone, a designer of optical illusions. Specifically, the post on How To Create Monsters & Mythological Creatures. That’s an example over there to the left. 

Once you see the method, like a number of magic tricks, it is deceptively simple. And yet, the results are awe inspiring. As someone who has a penchant for the idea of urban fantasy (I’d love to write one, just don’t quite see it so instead, I read ’em) all I can see are a number of powerful beings trapped in static forms or natural figures waiting to make themselves known in that luminal time between dark and light. 

Maybe you’ll be able to find inspiration here. Or maybe you’ll just enjoy some clever photography. Either way, it’s definitely worth a look.

  1. Of all the linked pictures, the one here in this post is especially unsettling.
    For me personally, it’s seeing malevolence in a tree
    Evil in stone is sorta to be expected (like loads of the others)
    But a lovely, living, steadfast tree, looking like it could kill you – yep, that’s a monster

    What news on Monki?
