The Nightmare Carriage by Pyramiddhead The Nightmare Carriage by Pyramiddhead

 This is artwork for a monster profile for the first demon encountered in my series “Blackhaven Institution” below is written some background information and origins of “The Nightmare Carriage”:

    On the day Blackhaven was consumed by flames, pure chaos along with distressing panic filled its hallways as the staff and children desperately looked for anyway to escape. During this madness children and staff where running between the wings of the building in panic choking on smoke and succumbing to the blaze. This demon was once an infant in the nursery wing at the time of the fire,put into a carriage before the fire erupted little Henry was put into a carriage along with three other babies who's fond nurses where going to take them on a stroll around the grounds that day. Pushing little Henry through the doors leading to the stairwell where the elevator was,his nurse Mildred was instantly distracted by the smell of smoke and a rise in temperature. She soon heard the cries of children and staff running around yelling 'Fire!!!”. Mildred panicked as she left Henry in his carriage while she ran back to where she came from to search for and rescue any children that may have been left behind. Left in his crib Henry was distressed by the situation, he spit out his pacifier and began to cry loudly. His cries were muffled by the sounds of chaos all around. Institution staff ran past him holding other children. The fire was getting dangerously closer to Henry, frightened he soiled himself and struggled to get out of the carriage. Suddenly through the doors came Mildred who was completely set ablaze. Shrieking in pain the fire blinded her and she stumbled around the room,accidentally crashing into Henry's carriage. The carriage began to swiftly roll towards the stairs as Mildred collapsed down in flames...The carriage rolled,tumbled,and crashed down the stairs stunning little Henry who was still in the carriage. Henry couldn't move and was trapped as the fire caught up consuming the carriage...

   In the nightmare world of Blackhaven Institution Henry's soul was shaped by his traumatic death into one of the Institution's most viscous demons,evil warped and twisted his innocent little body into a monster of pure nightmare...The Nightmare Carriage. Its large body is severely malformed,enlarged, and infused into a giant carriage. Its skin is a greyish sickly white and covered in patches of charred flesh,its carriage charred from the fire still releases smoke from the back, in the the back of the carriage this demon is attached to a disgusting formation that looks like a loaded diaper that gives off the most vile smell imaginable,this is where a black acidic bile is produced that runs from its eye,nose,and mouth. When startled it spits out it's large pacifier soaked in the dark acidic liquid,convulsing and pulsating it cries with such fury and force. With its long muscular arms and build it can charge at its victims with incredible speed and force. Because of the liquid running from its eye this demon is blind and relies heavily on sound. Using a very strange almost form of echolocation through its cries it can locate its victims. Its two deadly aspects are its acidic vomit and sharp claws, its vomit is highly corrosive towards flesh which can severely damage and digest it rapidly with contact but only stains any inorganic material. Its demonic claws are used for grip while its drags itself for traction and speed as well as inflict serious wounds. Usually accompanying this demon is the ghost of a weeping nurse who rarely shows her face as it has been corroded and destroyed. It is believe that this ghost is Mildred, Henry's nurse who now in Blackhaven accompanies the nightmare carriage in tormenting guilt. The nightmare carriage is one of the many demonic monstrosities of Blackhaven Institution and one of its most deadliest encounters.

   This has been the first of Blackhaven's Monster Profiles, you can read about the original graphically horrific first person encounter with a previous version of “The Nightmare Carriage at pyramiddhead.deviantart.com/ar…

Somebody didn't breastfeed this child when he needed it most...

Lol if it were the case this happened cause he wasn't breastfed it would definately be a mandatory law to breastfeed all children

Thank God it doesn't work that way, huh? Imagine how many women would be going to jail for bottle-feeding their newborn children... If you're the one who called the cops on them for it, you'd end up in Blackhaven for being a total douchebag, then end up meeting this monstrosity face-to-face and end up being digested by corrosive demon-baby bile. I'd call that Karma! lol

Lol I could only imagine,I like writing encounters for this series that involve some a-hole getting bad karma, my revision of the nightmare stinger is gonna be exactly that

I did like the story behind the nightmare stinger, and the nightmare stinger itself. I especially like how you did they eyes on that one; you made it look very psychotic...

Thanks it wasn't bad but idk something still bugged me about it no pun intended, maybe the story didn't need as much changing as the image or nothing at all, but I like the revision it looks a tad bit grosser and improved in my opinion but I hope you'll like it and enjoy the story as much or more than the last, Ill b putting it up around 5:30

Yeah I see what you mean, I like what you did in adding more detail to the rest of the body, but the eyes! Why? I kinda thought they were creepy enough as is. Not that it doesn't look good now, but I personally think the eyes should've stayed the same... Just to keep that last touch of Humanity to the demon. Y'know what I mean?

Thanks, though with the eyes I was real indecisive about changing them, maybe I should of kept one still human but I thought even though it took away from the humanity these new ones made it more grotesque,unpleasant,intimitdating and far gone but I know what you mean it was a tough decision to rid of the humanity but I guess it works

Awesome update! :D looks more realistic now and the floor looks awesome to, I can imagine the unnerving scraping sounds that the nightmare carriage's claws would make as it scratches the floorboards :D I still think this is the most creepy monster you ever made, and that pacifier is a nice touch to the disturbing factor :)

Yeap the pacifier is sort of a reminder of what this demon once was and still maybe unless the evil that corrupted made it to far gone which it appears to be
