Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Can Horrendous be Appealing and Efficient?




I feel I need to be more precise about my query.
I need to make a truly gruesome character, but I will try to avoid overdoing 
it.
The usual movie monster has so many cliche attributes it becomes funny and 
unbelievable.

I believe a more subtle approach might be more efficient for what I have in 
mind.
Have you ever met someone that just gave you uncontrollable fear?
Well, often the scariest things I've seen were things that were just enough 
"off" to be disturbing.
It's hard to describe.

It's not just a physical anomaly, it needs to be more than that, without 
being too much.
It's becoming esoteric.

I've half a mind to reproduce a real person's head and start distorting and 
simplifying it until it becomes what I need.
Who better than myself? I know I won't take it too personally if I end up 
looking awful...
