I'm so happy you posted these! I think I have checked your blog a hundred times waiting for the photo teasers!!!:) Once again you hit the ball way out of the park! Fantastic! Can you say if these are like the ones in the film?

JD said...

Woah :D so much detail! Amazing work and happy Halloween

Rot said...

Thanks! : )

Denise, they're similar to the ones in the film...but there's nothing like the Blind Sentinels in the film.... maybe for the sequel ; )

Wikkedmoon said...

Wow, just wow. Scarecrow catacomb - what a great concept. The lighting and detail is, as always, superb. I hope the weather holds off for you. It poured here all night with lots of flooding. But it is supposed to clear up by this afternoon so I should have time to get a few things done.
Happy Halloween Rot and Bean!

Heather said...

girl6 said...

ahhhhhh rot....YOU totally Outdid Yourself & how you're able to Keep doing that is just OtherWorldly..<333333333333

did you ever imagine this, all those years ago, when you purchased a copy of "October Country"...it's obvious Ray travels with you.

& Ohhhhhh Man....those ScareCrows are Unbelievable.
to me they resemble fragmented human beings, once so alive before their souls were snatched & stuffed into this twisted maze of torturous, burning hell, Forevvvver....
(esp. pic. #5)..brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

you've totally captured Halloween, so put it on a leash & take it outside for a Lonnnnnnnnnnng walk.

Happy Halloween Mr & Mrs Jones!!!

It's a tradition for me to check your blog every Halloween day, and you never disappoint. Great job yet again.

Countess VonRauber (Heidi) said...

So hauntingly beautiful! Glad y'all had a good Halloween. :)

Marrow said...

Absolutely stunning.

The blind sentinels look amazing, as do the rest of the 'crows. Those weird, disfigured faces give me chills.

Phenomenal work, Rot. Just blown away.

K.O. said...

Beautiful work!!! Amazing photography too...I love the shot with the blue light coming through the eyeholes!!

Jeff said...

Man, I know its all been said, but I think if you set one of The blind sentinels in front of me I may not move for three days. Just that good, that detailed. The sweep of the forearm into the hand on the one with the head tilted down, man that is just magic dude, pure beauty. I'm obsessed with those forearms, the structure and what I keep perceiving as muscle and bone throughout and those hands...yeah, unbelievable dude.

Rot said...

Thanks a ton, Jeff.

Shawn Loughery said...

Simply amazing Rot. You're my biggest inspiration. Keep up the good work :)
