Nightmare Dolly by Pyramiddhead Nightmare Dolly by Pyramiddhead
This is a concept I drew for a truly horrific and very disturbing demon from a recent short horror story I have written titled "the Little Girl And Her Dollies". I was inspired by the Victorian era/style and how creepy some aspects of it were and this idea poped into my head, thats how this nightmare was born. If you have not already lost the will to go to sleep tonight, I guarantee you will never be the same again after you read the story behind this concept and discover its dark and twisted secret...

It was around 2am that stormy night driving down the long stretch of road surrounded by woods. I was very tired and I no idea where I actually was, but I knew that this road would eventually lead to the highway after asking a few locals at a gas station awhile back. I couldn't hardly see in front of me as the torrential rain pounded my windshield blurring my vision. Out of nowhere I see something jump right in front of the car causing me to swerve out of control and I crashed into a thick tree nearby. My airbags must of malfunctioned as my head slammed into the steering wheel with tremendous force and I was knocked out cold. After some time passed I woke up and my car was wreaked, I tried dialing emergency services but my phone had no reception, I found it strange because not to long ago my service seemed fine, my head was throbbing and it was pretty painful.I waited a while to see if anyone  would drive by and  possibly could help me, but the road was empty that night as I became soaked by the rain. Suddenly a light caught my eye deep in the woods so I began to head toward it thinking maybe someone lives around here might be able to help me.

After a trekking awhile through the dark and eerie woods I eventually made it to the source of the light, I looked in awe as there was a large mansion of some sorts in front of me. It had a dated style of architecture like that of the Victorian era and I was eager to get inside and out of the rain. I knocked on the front door a couple of times and a little girl dressed in an vintage sleeping gown answered the door. I asked her if her parents where home, she insisted for me to come in but I didn't really feel comfortable being in this house alone with someone elses child, but she insisted it would be fine, that her parents were coming back very soon and they were nice folk as well as very welcoming to visitors. So I waited in the den observing all the paintings and extravagant patterns that lined this house, there were no magazines to read to pass time but many very old books and pamphlets scattered around, it was like history has left this place untouched for many years. While glancing around the room a noticed these three pictures of babies, something was very disturbing about the images there was an eerie lifeless quality about the babies faces. I became a little impatient and called for the girl, strangely and suddenly she appeared from right behind me as if she had been hiding there the whole time.

I asked her if there was a phone I can use and she nodded yes, she then tugged on my arm with a desperate look on her face as she asked me if I wanted to see her dollies first. I personally wanted to get to a phone so I can get out of here but she kept begging and insisting, so I agreed to go with her to see her dollies. She ran ahead of me upstairs very excitedly and I tried to keep up with her pace, eventually I ended up in a strange large room. Something was off about this room, the second I walked in I was bombarded by a smell similar to the one you would smell at a funeral, or even possibly the smell of death. The doors seemed to close and lock themselves behind me and I became a little nervous, there stood the little girl in front of a pair of giant curtains. Before I could say a word she put her finger on her lips and smiled whispering "Shhhhh.... I am going to wake up my dollies, I can't wait for you to meet them mister".I thought to myself "Wake up  dolls???", something didn't feel right,I played with the door a bit but somehow it was locked tight.

Suddenly I started to hallucinate and see these disturbing images in blank n white,I first saw this lady handing a baby doll to what looked like the little girl who lived in the mansion, she threw away the doll and had a tantrum, again I saw this lady but she was holding what look to be the lifeless body of a baby handing it off to the the little girl, then a scene of the little girl smiling and dancing, playing with the lifeless body of the baby as if it was a toy. Following that the images got progressively more disturbing, it then flashed to a room with shelves lined full of the corpses of babies dressed up like dolls and even some actual dolls mixed with the body parts of young children. Then it showed the image of a outside a window showing an angry mob of people with torches as they began to throw them through the window, then flashing to images of the little girl running around a room in flames as the mansion burned down, Lastly then showing the image of the woman from the earlier images at the gallows with her mouth hanging open with a haunting expression on her face.Suddenly I snapped back in to reality, the curtains slowly open as I heard the cries of three infants coming from darkness, I couldn't believe my eye as something of a truly horrific nature stepped into view. It was hard to compose myself as I began to shutter in fear, profusely vomiting as a sickening essence filled the air, piercing cries filled my ears driving me into insanity. I fell to the floor as the monster tried to assault me with its sharp and grisly hands as I swiftly crept past the monster into the darkness of the backroom. I panicked as I couldn't see my way around the dark room, I then started to feel little hands gripping me from all around, I swiftly took out my cellphone and flashed it around,I shouted and screamed in horror as I was surrounded by the dressed corpses of babies and grotesque dolls dripping black blood as they began to overcome me in great numbers. I  struggled with them but it was hopeless....the last thing I saw was the severely burned face of the little girl convulsing and cackling as everything faded to black....

When I look at those baby faces, they make me think of these gates you had to open in this game called Shadows of the Damned... that game was pretty creepy.

Yeah, the game was pretty freaky, it was made by some of the same people who've made the Silent Hill games. It was pretty badass once you got to the harder difficuly. But the game also had more of a hcartoony, humorous aspect to it. But aesthetically it was a beautifully done and well thought out game. It was fun, easy to learn, and even had those bullshit moments where you're like "God damn it!" then throw your controller across the room because you get too frustrated at the game... XD I'd reccomend it for anyone who's into Action and Horror...

Sounds good cause I like games with interesting creature designs n r also fun, I don't usually care if a game gets boring cause honestly silent hill doesn't have the funnest combat system lol except for maybe homecoming I liked but enjoyed the atmosphere and surroundings

I loved Silent Hill and everything about it, but yes, I think that game had more to do with storyline and atmosphere. Shadows of the Damned is more action-packed than Silent Hill, but I'd say it falls into the category of Horror (obviously), Comedy and Action... In a way it's kinda like the City of Savages, because the game takes place in a city full of demons...

Sounds like a game I definately should of played especially if its kinda like the City of Savages in a way, one of the reasons I stopped City of Savages for now is cause I wanted to make something more atmospheric like silent hill, I've had an idea I called Blackhaven but its really to similar to silent hill cause it a dark town full of demons kind of ideas and my 'demons' series feels kind of more original to me since the demons and environments are in the persons mind leading to endless possibilities.

Black haven sounds like a cool idea, but if you sont want ut to be similar to Silent Hill, maybe instead of demons the town itself should just be haunted? Or maybe the townsfolk are keeping a dark secret?

It was a pretty cool idea thinking about it cause its otherworld environment would be black and white with an old film kind of effect with film grain and stuff making it pretty creepy, though I wanted to include monsters that roam the streets n stuff I can find a way to make it original, but lol the procrastination kills me everytime I'm to random with my art its hard to stick to one idea for to long lol, I already got lazy with Demons lol I got to stop announcing these series cause I never end up sticking with them XD
