I kinda wish 3'rd had gotten 1st place, it makes you think- not like the others... which is basically telling you alot... but the 3'rd... hmm... you'd have to really think whats going on, very thought provoking, like, who's hand is that? 

-shrudder-

I really don't want to know. But congratulations, you all did an amazing job! c:

I like the thought and eerie look of the third but definitely don't see much connection with the contest.

Well, the way that I see it, in the movie "Insidious" the mother character is a composer and is seen in multiple scenes playing the piano when she starts to hear the eerie noises on the baby monitor. I understand where you're coming from but when I thought about it more, I came up with this. I mean, it's something to think about, isn't it? o3o

Your know... I know where i've seen that kind of look, the hands in the movie, Appararition/ the hands on the stair case in the movie, night of the demon.

I take it back those hands are the scariest thing in the new movie the Conjuring, which has Patrick Wilson in it, who is also in insidious, which is also directed by James Wan so it definitely has to do with the contest. I love it!

3rd one is really thought provoking but the 1st one really does scream Insidious. So I guess I've no complaints about how this is judged.

Congrats winners.  Loved most of the entries for this contest. Wished I had some time for it.  Hope some other of my fav artist will win next one or get into the finals.  Love the picks though for the finals and the win.  Good luck to all those that enter the next contests!

Well, not that I disagree that there are plenty of good ones out there, but I think they deserve third place. xD

I mean, would YOU like to be touched on the hand by god-knows-who while you're trying to play piano? A zombie-like, cold, lifeless hand coming out of your own piano...? Maybe it'd even be a ghost, and all you feel is a cold touch... And would they touch you on your shoulder or face as well...? All you want is to play piano, right? :ohnoes:

Lol anyway, it seems that they worked hard and I think they deserve their reward. Still, I don't disagree that there weren't plenty of great ones out there. xD

Np! You totally deserve it—the sketch and the details are simply AMAZING! Plus I like the fact it's not coloured, or it's a simpler scary.

How many of us have feared being touched in the dark? The first two top places are about bug fears, but that hand adds contrast to the placing—and I like it! :D
I know I'd be scared if I was touched in the dark. xD

Again, amazing job! :iconaawplz:
