Der Krampus by lord-phillock Der Krampus by lord-phillock
For any of you who don't know... December 5 and 6 were an important date for me as a child, because, growing up in Austria, we have a tradition that features this hellish being (albeit not so intense of BURSTING EVIL as I painted) and his buddy, the wonderful St. Nicholaus.

To know more about this nostalgic and very christmasy guy, please click my LINK: [link]

Merry Christmas!

Oh also, I was listening to this while painting the initial picture: [link] It fits perfectly (in my opinion)

Were there ever any naughty kids in Austria?

I can't imagine anyone would act up with the "abduct naughty children and eat them" figure hanging over their heads all year

You better not run
You better not cry
The Krampus is coming
You're gonna die

At midnight tonight
You'll be filled with fright
For it's heart is cold
From the days of old

Snicker-Snack
It'll always be back
Tripitty-trick
Get ready for a trip

Down to hell you'll go
In a deep, dark pit you shall lie
You shall scram and howl
And ask "Why?"

On the holiest night
Fools will feel it's might
Beware on Chrismas night
For the Krampus may just bite

Beautifully done! I feel too many people take away from the fact that he is a nature spirit, and because of that he always looks so human to me. This is incredible, and I totally envy your skill. I can't create anything from scratch, though I've tried several times.

I especially love the way you did the lighting. I'm glad I don't have horns, I'd constantly skewer myself :(
