Default December, 2015: Krampus

Hi all...

The holidays are approaching... and with that an appropriate theme! I recently saw the trailer for the upcoming Krampus film and figured we could take a stab at doing an interpretation of this ancient, not-so-nice, creature.

From wiki: In Austro-Bavarian German-speaking Alpine folklore, Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts.

Hope you all have a great holiday season, look forward to seeing your entries!

Good Luck!

edit: Winners Announced!



-Alex

Default Krampus

Growing up in Austria, I was visited by the Krampus quite often and as a child it was really terrifying until you know that it just a costume. Nevertheless ... the Theme was great fun! I tried to diverge from the original portrayal and how he carries the children.

Default Krampus - By Sliviz

Hi guys. This is my first post here but wanted to thank gnomon for hosting the challenge. I have really enjoyed designing and painting this piece.

The idea behind my Krampus is that he is in fact a winged evil demon who wears a dead goat headdress. He flies around snatching children to eat at Christmas time as it is easy pickings and they are all at home in bed.

I really wanted to push my creativity on this painting and come up with something original. I also wanted to focus on lighting and texture more as I have been learning some new techniques lately.

Happy holidays!

Default Alter-Ego

The old man had made his three wishes to the strange creature wisely, or so he thought. With long life, the ability to travel the world instantaneously, and an infinite bag of presents, he now wandered the world bringing joy to all those he met. He was known by many names: Santa, Grandfather Frost, Sinter Klaas, Papa Noel, jolly Old St. Nikolaus. He was beloved by all. Yet sometimes, in the quiet of the night, he would wake in terror. The dream was always the same; a shadow stalking him, a merciless creature of brimstone, the children he had given presents to swallowed up in the pits of the Earth. The nightmare followed into waking, as rumors of missing children and a vicious demon arose wherever he went. Was there some beast from the netherworld stalking his movements? Was there a curse upon him for accepting three wishes from an imp? Or, was the unthinkable the truth; he himself was the Krampus, and the cost of spreading joy was spreading death.

Default Mr. Krampus

Knowing the story of this guy for many years.. I always thought it would be cool to see him as an old man type of guy,..with centuries of stories and sadness..
That was my thinking with this concept

Good luck everyone! ..
