The Bloody Chamber by the-dumb-waiter The Bloody Chamber by the-dumb-waiter
Illustration for The Bloody Chamber from Angela Carters The Bloody Chamber. Originally to be submitted for the Folio Society competition this year, but I missed the deadline.
In this image i wanted to capture the sense of impending horror that the protagonist is about to experience when she goes through the door at the end of the corridor. She knows that something isnt right on the other side.
Not entirely sure why I chose to make the shadows square but visually it seemed to work against the curve of the corridor and the erratic red marks (blood?)
I had to do some post editting in Photoshop in order to make the red more luminous and so that it looked more like it was being lit by a flaming torch.

Watercolour, dip pen and ink;
Photoshop for resizing and colour editting
