War Of The Worlds by Somebody-Someone War Of The Worlds by Somebody-Someone
I love the Spielberg version of War Of The Worlds, since a little kid the tripods have always been more scary to me than anything. I can watch macarbe horror films with sick evil shit in but it doesnt effect me. But the tripod just stood there scares the shit out of me, I tried to imagine me in the film and running out back into my garden and seeing the tripod come out the ground and stand over the houses. I'm not convinced the quality is that good, but it's more about the theme / idea, I love the photo, it looks just how imagined it to be - I think its eerie and kind of epic at the same time.

I know.I was scared of the tripods as well.Especially the sound they made

I like it! I'm the same way with movies, too. Hillbilly horrors and slasher films are just Tuesday for me; War of the Worlds was TERRIFYING. And don't worry about the quality; it's more than a lot of people (myself included) could possibly do!

I think a good idea would be a tripod standing over at night, its three lights pointed at you with its heat rays charging up

Hey this is great!

Can you submit a print of this? I'd like to have it hanging on my wall :)

One thing that Spielberg's movie did right is the Tripod's design and all (the machines, at least). And their siren-thingy, which is creepy.
Tripods don't look like your typical alien-spaceships. 
They seriously don't look like something that came from space. 
They have more in common with the monsters under your bed than anything else.

Great pic here. Very creepy and disturbing effect.

I completely agree with you on that, something about menacing appearance of the Tripod.

I would begin slowly walking backwards away from the machine, when it blows its horn; i would run away! :o

I totally agree! It was the tripods that made the story SO frightening.
Great work. Gave me the creeps looking at it.

I'm with you. War of the Worlds is one of the only movies out there that I shake through an entire viewing and have had multiple bad dreams about.

Great pic!
One night I dreamt that I stumbled upon one of those tripods in a corridor at home. I mean, it was a tripod whose size was suitable for my corridor... Only two metres high. But, oh, my, it was so scary to find it and see that it started to run after me... And making those horrid fog horn sounds...
Really, the movie scared me at that moment, when the tripods attack at first time. At that scene, I was like "Why the hell donīt they start running madly for their life?" >O<

I can't bring myself to watch the movie, I listened to the original soundtrack just yesterday and have been on edge since! This is an amazing picture. You can really see the hesitation, to run or just stare entranced? Great work! Love it!
XxLittleMissLivyxX Featured By Owner May 19, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm still afraid of the noise those things made, and now it's my ringtone and whenever I get a call or text that noise plays and you should hear me scream!!
StellasStar Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2012
WHAA?? You got the tripod noise as your ringtone? How did you do that? :D That has got to be the freakiest noise ever and I would love it as mine!

Same! I was 13 when I saw this film and I had nightmares for weeks. It was so worth it though. The same thing goes for movies like signs and silent hill. I prefer movies with subtle horror rather than slasher, gore, or surprise there`s a scary monster out of no where. Honestly, everytime a snow plow wakes me up in the middle of the night the first thought that goes through my head is that is a tripod warming up its lazer beams lol. I like the mood of this picture. Though I think it would have blended together better if the tripod had the same comic book effect as the bottom of the picture. I've added it to my favs, I love it! x3
SJArt117 Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2011
Same here, though i was around 8 when i saw it in the cinema's! Im 14 now and im still frightened! XD

The tripods are cool, and creepy. xD
I love when they're just standing on the mountains near the boat. They're just...
There. xD
This is awesome

I totally feel you on the tripods. I don't know if it was the fact of them being buried or how they acted. Hell, it could have even been the sound they made, but they really got to me. Normally, I can sketch something out and it leave me alone, but they didn't. They still creep me out. I'm kinda glad I'm not the only one.

Anyway! This is really well done and it's looks so really. I seriously thought this was a digital piece due to that, but wow! This is definitely a fave for me.
Ankh117 Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2010
It's a pretty good version. The only thing I don't like about it is that screaming kid. I know I'd fall apart seeing several of thoese Tripods coming after me, but that girl just bothers me.

i totally get you... The musical has scared me to this very day haha something eerie about how well the story is told and how creepy the general idea is... Love the photo btw, great angle and lightsource

I used to watch the old version of the movie growing up and there was this street lamp outside of my bedroom window that looked like the shooting ligament thing on the tripods in the old school version.
I hated that streetlamp and it would always scare me...even now, I just watched the new movie again tonight, it gets my heart racing.

There's something so....terribly real about these movies.

Wonderful piece.....wonderful :clap:

Good job on the photo! ^^
