my childhood fear by kotorikurama my childhood fear by kotorikurama
Decided to enter into this contest (always have been a horror movie fan). I will make another entry, this one I took from my child hood fear.
When I was little we lived in a house that had a window near the closet. When it was sunny or if there was a moon out the window would cast a light in front of the closet. Every night I would tell my mother to cover the window, because I was afraid that the light from the window would make this thing crawl out and to get me.

I also had a fear about the creature that I drew here, When I was little this was my boogie man.
A thing that was a shadow but alive, had a weird skinny long body and made no sound. Any time I saw it when I was little it would just look at me. I was always afraid that it would get me and do something horrible to me!!

My brother had a creature similar to this when a child, but it was a little bit more like Venom (Spider-man), but completely black with a shark-like fin on, either its head or its back. I have had an encounter with a strange, wraith-like figure before when a child. Then I had a recent (2012) encounter with a black figure when I came to live with my grandmother. It was pure black and BIG, but it had brown-like root things coming out of it. I remember I was wide awake when I saw it. I turned away just as it lunged at me. I felt it push into my back and disappear. I turned around, but it was definitely gone. It was a frightening, but unbelievably amazing encounter.

It's so crazy how many people have seen something similar to this XD
It's exciting but at the same time kind creepy that this might just be a real thing.

You know what this means, right?
These things.
They are real. :o
Nah, not really.
But it is weird that so many people have seen them, or things like them.

Huh. Well it's about a guy who can see and talk to the dead, and there are these shadow things called bodachs, and those are the first things I thought of when I saw your awesome picture.
Also it's a good series. Seriously, check it out. :XD:

Exactly. I have researched some of it. It seems that, at times, it is bad. An evil soul coming to torment an innocent one. At other times, I have heard that it is actually just a part of your soul returning to you, like that feeling of falling when asleep and jumping awake when you hit bottom. Strange stuff. I hope this helps a bit. ^_^

Haha, this reminds me too much of the rubber man (Tate) from American horror story... Which I guess would be less scary.

I don't know if it was real or not, I only saw it from when I was about six till I started high school.
It was very strange sense I would see it in a dream or in real life, might of been a child's imagination. ^^;

OH MY GOD! I saw this on the main DA page and knew I recognized this creature! I too have seen this, my entire life to be exact!this thing is real, no boogie man. It does live in the shadows though! I first saw this creature as a child to, long ago.. it said my name in a dream and I woke up, very frightened. Now that I am older I still use my ESP and can apparently see it... just like you. It lives in the far wall of my room. DX I've done a lot of research an I think it's Greek in origin... it may be some type of Goddess etc... after all in the Ancient Days black animals were sacrificed to Gods or Goddesses of the underworld. Also, as you have figured out this thing doesn't hurt you.. but looks very creepy. It is a dweller of the near by sort... it's intention is to protect you either that or receive your reverence. I think it is related to Artemis or Hecate... or may be her. o-o Our world sure is amazing, people like you and I have ha no choice in knowing the truth or the super natural.
