beautiful, absolutely. for a single person to create, it is amazing.

Beautiful. Genuinely moving, it nearly made me cry. It was scary at some parts but dramatic in others and I thought the lighting was an excellent plot device. The way the shining monster threw shadows about its surroundings was brilliant.
The fact that it's all your own work gives it a solid 5/5 stars. Well done, sir.

Wonderful, I loved the story, I love the art, but especially I love how you used the black to represent the mother and her children and the white to represent the monster, changing compleatly the concept of what is good and what is evil.

Not only that but you did it so well that the glow of the monster was not taken for something holy or glorious, instead, it was a threat, it was danger getting closer to this family. It glows towards them as if it was trying to catch them instead of it glowing everywhere trying to chase the darkness away.

At last I just want to say. Really well done sir, I give you 5 stars :D
