No, These Creature Illustrations Aren’t ‘Silent Hill’ Concept Art

SH_1

The Silent Hill franchise is known for its incredible monsters. Pyramid Head, the nurses, those damn freaky nightmare creatures from The Room that were basically torsos that walked on giant hands and had screaming heads mounted between big, broad shoulders. Yeah, fuck those.

I have some monster illustrations by Australian artist James Flaxman, and they’re disturbing — but in a good way. After the disappointing arsenal of creatures in Silent Hill: Downpour, I’m thinking it may be a good idea for Konami to bring on this guy so he can freshen things up a bit. If you’re ready to sleep with the lights on for a bit, check them out (beware, some are NSFW).

For more of James’s work, check out his gallery.

    Holy shit, these are great. This guy needs to come on-board. His work reminds me of Giger.

    Wow, these designs are genuinely creepy. The one with the two bodies back-to-back and the pointed spikes for legs; who thinks of shit like that? Konami needs to hire this dude to do the creature deisgns for the next game, because Downpour was a huge let-down, monster-wise.

    Those are ALL fantastic and it would be a shame for that guy’s creativity to go to waste. Put him on board for something! I would love to see some of these come alive :)

    Forget Silent Hill…they need to sign him on for character design for the often rumored Hellraiser remake!

    Woah, these are incredible. Love them.
