Chompy by dischordiasnightmare Chompy by dischordiasnightmare
This is Chompy. He haunts me. He's an evil Jack O'Lantern who eats people.

He is made of fiberglass. Then the Jack O'Lantern face was added later, and made into a lamp. I made a kind of Tim Burtonish base for it (hard to see in this pic, but a nod to The Nightmare Before Christmas), and it has a flicker-flame lightbulb installed in it. That said, it's impossible to photograph, and you can't see the bulb unless there is no other light in the room. I think I'm going to raid the lighting department at school next week and steal some lighting gels to put in the lamp and just use a normal bulb.

I like to make things that freak me out, and this is a nightmare from when I was a kid.

He's my entry into the :iconda-morgue: Nightmares contest! They are a fantastic group and all dark artists should join <3

And Chompy loves you too! Especially your fingers. Easier to chomp on.

Heh thank you. I just realised he'll make an excellent companion piece to my life sized Jack Skellington :)

It's just paint in the shade I could get closest to blood, then had an awesome tiem flicking and dripping it all over the little guy.

And thanks!
