*Incoherent screaming*

This is SO good. I am a fan of horror/scary movies and this had me like "eeee-oh shit!" the whole time. It made me want to laugh but, at the same time I was gripping my blanket so tight. As "TheFabs" said, I also thought it might be more of a silly thing but, was very pleased that it wasn't.

I love that you aren't sure if this creepy being is friendly or has dark intentions. His face, of course, a misleading factor.

The reaction of the main character when he met the being was perfect and very relatable. It's hard to know what to do when someone seems to be acting friendly but, looks evil. The speechlessness was a believable touch.

Excellent work!

Side note...
Seeing a part two or more adventures of this being would definitely have my attention!

Ah man, thanks for your kind words. :) and I'm really glad you liked it. I didnt even consider that people were going to expect a joke at the end. Haha but I kind of like that because as you said it can add more to the whole idea that you don't know what the intentions of the thing are. I'm definitely planning on doing more horror shorts in the future. ^_^

For some reason, I was expecting this to end with a joke. So glad it didn't. Really nice colors! The shading/lighting were handled with great craftsmanship and it's really appreciated. The ending was creepy and I'm glad it didn't end with the first encounter with the man holding his hand out, as that would have been P LAME. You put in the extra effort to make it more complete, and that's good! The concept was really simple, but it worked for me. Great job!

Thank you. :) Yeah, I didn't want it just to be that he met the guy outside and that was the end of it. I wanted there to be something even more unsettling. :) I'm glad you enjoyed it. ^_^ Thanks for the review.
