Daily Deviation

Given 2006-01-10
At first sight, Staring Contest by ~Cyril Van Der Haegen is a winterly fantasy image of our old friend the Grim Reaper minding his cold business in the woods. Until the point you discover this little white bunny. This combination makes this artwork a hilarious mix of literally black humor and deadly seriousness. I for one am not sure who is going to win, but if they keep it up long enough, this staring contest in the freezing cold will never end...

Also viewable as our Print of the Day. ( Featured by Thunderstatement )

I met the real one..  It was almost identical, but black robe, and no blade, no hands nor face..  Seems it didn't need a blade..  it had extreme cosmic connections.. I stuck a claw to my head, and my brain started freezing solid..  I tossed a rock at it..  The rock didn't go through it..  I shouted Wait!"..  It waited..  I shouted "Now Go and Not Return!"..  It sank into the ground exactly at where my finger pointed to the ground..   Seems that demonic soul-eating monster can only kill you if you let it..   It's weird science...

Correction:  "It stuck a claw into my head"..  You had to have been there..  It's really weird to feel your brain turning to ice from the centre to outward..  I suppose it was feeding..?

That depends if Death has anything to peep with to start with.
If he has hollow eyesockets, the rabbit wins by default, because it would be like having a staring contest where on participant just keeps his eyes closed at all times.

So, Death has took a fools bargain.. and probably left this rabbit with his new title, The Rabbit of Caerbannog, for besting him in wits.

I tried to draw this this in pencil  when I was ten  but my skills were not very good.
This picture really impressed me then, and it took my breath away this time.
Great work.!!
I think I've fainted. +fav

I find it funny how few pictures there are of the grim reaper where the figure has a defined bottom portion, and isn't just rising up out of the ground or darkness. Just a funny thought. This is really good though. A fine painting that deserves great praise. I think the rabbit might win ;P
