Encountering Fear

2010, ink and ink wash on watercolor paper

The concept for this one was to make 'Fear' the feeling/emotion, into a physical creature. What would it look like to encounter something like that. Fear should inspire,... well, fear. Those who see it should see something scary, but what if the creature that inspired such terror also felt it's own namesake. What if it had been scarred and beaten by those trying to conquer it, afraid of it.
This is the image that was born of that idea.
