William by DerekWalborn William by DerekWalborn
"William took to the basement. He needed someplace dark. Soon everything would be better. Soon everything would change."


Fiberglass, resin, cotton cloth, and latex over wood/wire frame. Bolted to ceiling.

*The "Silent Hill" comparison has been coming up a lot and I take that as a compliment, but no, this is not meant to be a spin on the game. Thank you for all the kind words!

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-11-30
William by ~DerekWalborn is a very dark and disturbing piece like something out of a nightmare especially when coupled with wonderful texturing, lighting and the surrounding setting. The human like shape puts me in mind of something out of silent hill or perhaps a cocoon of some kind, though what may come out of it is best not guessed.

Sepultura Chaos AD anybody? I really love the texture in the corner, though I am not a fan of the PVC on up. I think there is too much light at that point. I do however like the shadow produced by the PVC. The photo got my attention and held it long enough to scroll up and down to figure out what I liked and did not like, so I guess that means I like it overall lol.

So I saw something in the trailer for the new Silent Hill movie that looks an awful lot like William...

I have to ask what you did with it afterword. I would like to think your friend let you leave it in the basement where she sends people down for something without telling the about your fabulous work of art.

Somehow I doubt he's going to become a butterfly.
