You'd Better Watch Out by DarthFar You'd Better Watch Out by DarthFar
"He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good..."


- Santa Claus is Coming to Town.


Is it just me, or do those lyrics sound a little disturbingly like an Orwellian Big Brother-y Santa? :paranoid: One who is watching your every move...

(The clutter is just for show, btw. He has his elves do all the intel).

To all my friends and watchers: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! And to those who don't celebrate it, well, Happy Holidays! :rudolph:

Phew! After so much cute artwork you had me worried for a bit. But this one is back to old form. :D
The details are great, there's so much to see. Especially the reindeer skin had me snicker. :heart:

....HEY, DARTH!!! ....regarding the "congrats on the DD", back at'cha, my friend!!! THIS IS AMAZING!!!!...and well deserving the exposure of a Daily Deviation! Your photo-realistic paintings are off the charts and never cease to knock me out of my desk chair! ...and coupled with an always entertaining concept, your work is among the finest that DA has to offer. Simply extraordinary.....

Thanks very much Ric! the DD came as a bit of a surprise. I actually meant this as a cartoon, rather than any kind of exercise in realism, but I got a little carried away. :laughing: And haha, I admit to having perverse fun stuffing my pictures as full of easter eggs as I can manage!

...yes, I see poor Rudolph has been skinned and turned into a chair cover. That is one sinister Santa. "He sees you when you're sleeping" etc. I am reminded of how everyone thought at first that Sting's song (with The Police) "Every Breath You Take" was a love song until it became obvious that it was more about obsession and stalking. Then it became kinda creepy. That song, and this painting, is genius.

So true.... If you stop to actually think about it, the concept of Santa is actually pretty creepy :O

Yes it is! :laughing: A large man in a bright red suit who spends 364 days of the year scrutinising your children's every move, and then sneaks into your house by way of the fireplace and eats your cookies....
