MAMA by Junedays MAMA by Junedays
I'm scared of bathrooms. They're like a combination of everything bad, with the mirror there, and the shower curtain, and what have you. Something horrible always goes wrong in a bathroom in every movie.

In my family's old apartment, we had a really leaky bathroom. there was a small closet in the corner for towels and the lock was broken so the door never shut. I think it was just the towels inside reflecting back light but whenever I looked at it from the corner of my eye, the door was always half open and there was something bright glimmering back at me.

XD

To make it worse, one of my biggest fears though is seeing something in a mirror (IN THE BATHROOM) and turning around to find nothing there. Or mirrors in general, they just freak me out. I can't stand to be in the dark with a mirror. It probably has some connection with all those Bloody Mary games you hear about.

Ok story time over XDDDDDDD

This is incredible! Very chilling. The atmosphere is so dreamy and strange, it really adds to the sense of unease. Just awesome!

I think the girls reflection watching her is far creepier than the thing coming through the mirror awesome stuff.

Wow.. You just described the best a really big fear of mine.. o.o
I hate bathrooms and mirrors as well, and I always get that creepy feel that someone is watching me, through the mirror or just behind me.. 
Great work! Glad I'm not the only one there with that fear. XD

....The scariest thing ever ; _ ; And omg, after reading description I just have to say, that I feel the same. I'm always afraid of going to the bathroom at night, but when I really have to do it, I avoid looking at the mirror and going back to my room as fast as it's possible xD (but there's probably smth other waiting under my bed, holy shit, I'm fucked = A = )



And sorry for my english!

Oh my god... I have the same fear... This mirrors always freaks me out. :fear:

I'm afraid to see my face but with some unnatural deformation or not my face or something behind me...

And this moments when you must close your eyes during washing face (or covered with a towel)... Yhmmm... Creepy. Especially AT NIGHT. ;p

P.S. Your work is awesome! I love 'old style', black & white colors and her head (from behind - what's this btw? Is this piece of the monster?). And I love how she's sad but calm - maybe she's accepting the death? Really interesting... :clap:

Junedays Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013
Thanks! Old style--vintage? I know what you mean but I don't know the word either XD
I made her calm because it's implied (badly) that the image is only visible in the mirror and not in the real world.

Oh, I see now. Cool effect for sure. :nod:

That's interesting. She's seeing bad things only in her mind... Or they're real and only she can see them. :clap:

This means you had very deep story behind the picture. Love it! :heart:

And don't forget you apparently get sucked into alternate realities of a place called Silent Hill when you use the bathroom. ^_^
I really love how it isn't really clear what the thing in the mirror is--it can be just a harmless item like a hanging towel, or it could be something sinister ><

It's so good not to be the only one... especially when your house if almost 100 years old and the drains creak in the bathroom... and then my friend's basement bathroom has a laundry chute hole in the ceiling, I'm always scared something will fall down through it and kill me O.o

Oh my gosh I've never known someone else who was creeped out by bathrooms before but me :) it's that it's one of the only rooms in the house that leads to someplace else I guess. Anyway, awesome piece! The atmosphere of the whole thing is super...love the creepiness. Perfectly executed :)

I think my fear of bathrooms began after watching The Ring but I can't say why exactly since bathrooms had nothing to do with the movie. :/ I suppose it's just being alone in a watery, mirror-y place that does it to me.

THIS is one of my biggest fears as-well . my family is currently living with one of my grandmothers since we lost the house and she literally has mirrors EVERYWHERE. i'm so deathly afraid of this at night that when i need to something in the other areas of the house i seriously panic and just dash back and forth to avoid them XD i can't help it! they are my downfall ;A;
