Blood Being by TentaclesandTeeth Blood Being by TentaclesandTeeth

This is the first in a series that I am planning as a personal project. I want to tell a horror story through these images. I am still hashing out details as I go along thumbnailing and painting. I love psychological horror, so I am trying to get that kind of feel.

If you guys have an idea for lore on this creature, post below!
There are many better writers out there than me, so I'm open to ideas.

Hope you all like it!

Okay, so a girl is driven to suicide by some pretty sick and nasty individuals who care nothing for her and push her over the edge. The poor girl slits her wrists in the bath and dies alone and unloved.
However, her blood fills the bath and starts to form into a creature...an ancient demon...intent on avenging her wronged life and bringing a violent and painful death upon those who forced her to such a low she killed herself.

Fully formed, the monster takes a moment to look over the dead girls corpse and closes her eyes. Then it leaves to bring terrible retribution.

If I write a short story as a sort of tribute, is that good? :D

The creature had possessed her and drove her to kill herself so that it could be born of her  blood.

It was cool on the outside. It was also heavy, hard to balance or find any sense of things. There were patterns, certainly the familiar axial tug. But others were lacking. The rhythm had slowed and ceased long ago, several hundred not beats. Stillness had not been agreeable, and so an exit was made, out into this strange medium. At first thing seemed to make sense, the watery shape a reassuring container. Even the pattern was visible, in a sort of exterior echo, not visible from the interior. The echo floated and cooled, even as the water grew unpleasant. So a further odyssey then, it's clear that staying here is untenable. But that axial tug remains, so something is needed to overcome it. The answer as always is evident all along. Knowing both the interior and exterior, a structure can be created if just through focused will. After all it's quite clear the echo couldn't have been here long, the tug varied too much. So a structure then, an echo of the echo. 

Progress was incremental at first, the strange topology of the container not making any sense. Why keep all the fluid in one depression, when one further down is both larger and more convenient? Alignment with the tug proved hard, but eventually mastery over balancing on ones extremity was achieved. Part of the pattern were changed as well, the fifth and uppermost lobe proving an unnecessary hindrance to this skill of balance. Veins extended into the cold dry void revealed many interesting things about the wider container, and it's various ledges and crevices. A quiet set of notbeats, with one limb cluster placed upon the echo where it bobbed. It had proved a gracious world, always expanding commensurate with growth, and full of welcoming crannies. But it is clearly unfit for habitation now, and this exodus should be made as brief as possible. Now to find a new place to dwell, perhaps even a new echo if fate is kind.

Great piece, I love the anatomy of the creature, and I hope my own little snippet is welcome.

I don't know about the lore but to me this had the feel that it might be some sort of poltergeist: Something that is left to wonder the Earth after getting violently killed, - in this case maybe unsolved issues, and the feelings of uncertainty, because of the suicide. -In western culture it's a taboo to commit one after all (because of Christianity.) 

This is so stunning piece.. To me there is no other horror than psychological horror. It's the soul of horror isn't it? I really like the idea behind it.

What if it's actually the woman herself and that's what happens when you kill yourself by cutting your own wrists; you become a twisted reflection of your own suicidal death, driven mad by the violence and circunstances that led you to kill yourself in the first place. She now has become a bloodied wraith, forever wandering the valleys of death in this corrupted form

soo the original creature is rather like a freddy krueger where he haunts people  to lead them to suicide and then use all dem blood so he can make a body that connects him to the real world
the protagenist might be the only one to have enough will to survive or something

Love the piece. How about this " The blood soaked water began to vibrate and disapate into the air forming a solid humanoid object in front of the bathroom mirrior. It was formed of spikes and bone it, she felt odd weak. Wisps of blood and matter flowed off its body it brought it's hand no claw was far more accerate for what they were, her razor sharp tools of misery and vengeance. She looked to the left and found a corpse sitting in a pool of blood. Feeling oddly sentimental she moved over and closed its eyes after all it had been her portal she had come through to this world of lights and logic. The world seemed to shift to it and suddenly Angela heard the sound of sloshing water and looked down to notice that her bath water was spilling out all over the tile. What in the hell had she just seen?" Sorry if the flavor text style of writing is wierd but I thought it might make it a whole hell of lot more intressting to read.

Perhaps it could be an abstract creature that leads people to suicide, so that it can use their blood to become a corporeal being

I have an idea: what if he's a freddy-kreuger-esque sort of character? He's always there, ut can only become corporeal when there are large quantities of exposed blood from which he forms- to go on a vampiric hunt for blood to sustain his constantly decaying form!

BTW, if you don't choose to use this, I will use it in one of my books.

Its an incorporal creature that is shaping a body out of blood and the "body" in the tub is a skinsuit for it to wear.
