#87 The Scream by Picolo-kun #87 The Scream by Picolo-kun
My take on the iconic artwork from Edvard Munch


I like how the artist intended to paint not a guy screaming but the sensation of fear itself. I don't know if my version is as creative as the many I've seen on the web but it was pretty fun to do ^-^. On the background I drew the creatures that frighten me the most - which are the shadow people. Have you ever heard about them? o.o

My attempts of hiding the familiar black cat continues /( *-*)/

I love that painting. Its one of my favourites, and Edvard Munch is runner up to be my favourite artist. I love how you were able to capture the essence of the painting and evoke similar emotions even with the lack of colour and distortion that Munch shows on his painting. Great job! Keep up the awesome work, and I am a huge fan of yours now.+favlove I love deviantART!

Ok. I understand why you drew shadow people as the things that frighten you the most. I have witnessed them and they are absolutely terrifying. Armin Arlert (Scared) [V2]

For anyone that doesn't know, he painted based off of one of his nightmares. That's what my art teacher informed us when we were talking about his paintings. xD

Oh, yeah, heard about them. Wonder if Munch had that in mind when he did that painting? I love the little kitten in the right corner!

That sea of terror to the right and those shadow people really draw me in.
Your version seems to depict a more internalized fear, though no less terrible.
I like it.

"stop screaming, the recesses of my mind echoes amid the desperate cry, despair fills me, memories immersed me ..."

Fear has no shape,but its the individual's perspective of it that renders it so frightening. 😱
Now even Kitty is (trying) to scare. ..so cute😁

However, bravo on this piece. I believe you are right that Edvard Munch was trying to give a sense of fear, but you done a great representation here as well.

I like your depiction of scream although I feel that your character should have his mouth wide open like in the original. The background is quite well detailed. I like it. ^_^ <3
