Halloween Challenge Day 14: Something That Scares Me

When I was younger there were these beetle larva around my house, my brother and I rarely saw them but they made our skin crawl. I didn't mind bugs, but for whatever reason they creeped the hell out of me as a kid. They were these little brown, shelled worms with a spot of hair near their heads. At one point we decided to put an end to the madness and we searched out every corner to do away with the harmless larvae.

For this concept I tapped into this memory of a fear I once had. I didn't want to just draw the larva so I turned it into an idea for a deformed human/larva hybrid. As I was working I started to draw inspiration from artists like Alex Alvarez as well as some influence from some creatures featured in the game Dead Space.
