Fear Me Love Me Do as I Say

...and I will be your slave.


Once upon a time, my father told me a story. He told me a story about a man who stole children from their cribs, leaving their mothers weep in the morning when they found the cradle empty. He told me a story about man who stole the dreams of those who dreamed of the most brilliant things. He told me a story about a man who was very lonely.

But the man didn't know he was lonely.


The above is a random little blurb I thought up while working on this. As to the character. He is Abaddon, Apollyon, the Boogeyman, the Destroyer, all the evil things of nightmares. He is a sociopathic monster who delights in cruelty.

Honestly, when I set about making him, he was just going to be an angtsy elf-man with two-toned hair.

    I love your title for this. That is one of the greatest lines that Jareth says on Labyrinth. "Fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave." I love that movie. ^^ Well if this guy is the creator of nightmares, he sure is gorgeous. Laughing I really love that tattoo that is running down the side of his face. The detail is very intricate and delicate and doesn't completely overwhelm the picture. And I just adore that background. I for one cannot do backgrounds so I always marvel at what other people can do. Very nice pic, my dear. ^_^

      Thanks muchly for the love!

      Abaddon is actually based loosely off Jareth--I've been watching WAY too much of that movie recently. He wasn't meant to be psycho, but coloring this in between reading Labyrinth fiction... Well, I think it changed him into what he is now.

      The tattoo is definitely my favorite part. It was a pain to make--I think six different layers just for it. It was made with little pieces of about sixteen different brushes and made my eyes crossed, even zoomed in all the way.

    very nice! I love his tattoo, and the thing you wrote at the top it reminds me of sandman by neil gaiman

      lol, I just gave you a link in another reply. Oh well. You found this one just fine!

      God, I love his tattoo. It was a hard little thing to get out, but it's a nice effect.

      The line is actually from the movie Labyrinth, which I have been watching religiously lately. The villain says it.
