Austrian Artist Creates Spooky Illustrations, And You Shouldn’t Click If You’re Easily Frightened

Published 1 year ago

Stefan Koidl is an Austrian freelance illustrator and a concept artist, who creates eerie illustrations in Photoshop. His works feature various creepy motives, ranging from urban legends to mythical creatures.

Stefan said he has been drawing since he was a little kid but started focusing on drawing professionally about 3 years ago. When asked what inspires him to create these eerie drawings, the artist said: “Artists, films, games. I always wanted to make paintings like the “professionals” do. A huge inspiration is also the ability to paint stuff from your imagination, creating your “own worlds.” “I love Lord of the rings, Shutter Island, Stranger Things, and everything that has to do with fantasy or horror,” the artist told Demilked. Stefan says some of the most influential artists for him are Feng Zhu, Sabbas Apterus, John Park, Darek Zabrocki, Greg Rutkowski and Simon Stålenhag.

When asked how long it usually takes for him to finish his works, Stefan told us “It’s hard to tell when a drawing is finished, I mostly call it done after 6-10 hours.” Even though his works feature a few funny illustrations, like the one with the squirrel in The Shining bathroom scene, most of his works are focused around various creepy things. “It’s just fun to draw, I like playing with the “fear”,” shared Stefan.

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Something that always peeks his interests is old technology, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
