A tribute to Suzzanna by tremorizer A tribute to Suzzanna by tremorizer
Another tribute i did a minute after i upload the re-animator one [link] . This one come from my place, Indonesia. This is not a huging pillow, but a ghost, a living dead called "pocong". Indonesian zombie. But there's a different from usual zombie. This kind of zombie doesnt eat brains. Well, of course, because this is not zombie but pocong. Sorry for the confusion.

Why this ghost looks like hugging pillow? i can tell why, but my bad english is horrible. So, here some lines from wikipedia the savior:

"A pocong is an Indonesian or Malaysian ghost that is said to be the soul of a dead person trapped in their suit. The pocong suit (shroud) is used by Muslims to cover the body of the dead person. They cover the dead body with white fabric and tie the clothing over the head, under the feet, and on the neck. According to the native beliefs, the soul of a dead person will stay on the earth for 40 days after the death. When the ties aren't released after 40 days, the body is said to jump out from the grave to warn people that the soul need the bonds to be released. After the ties are released, the soul will leave the earth and never show up anymore. Because of the tie under the feet, the ghost can't walk. This causes the pocong to hop."

This illustration is taken from a scene in a local Indonesian classic horror movie, “Sundel Bolong” released in 1982. Suzzanna, the Indonesian horror queen acted as Alisa, a girl who lived in darkness, raped and murdered. She rise from the grave to do her revenge on people who responsible of her death. She become a ghost called Sundel Bolong, terrorizing people. Yes, if you notice, "Sundel Bolong" is a different ghost, but i dont know why later she turns into pocong too!

In this famous scene, her "enemy" was hide in a room after chased by Alisa. Suddenly the wall on the room explode, leaving a big hole on it, and then we can see that there's a pocong hanged upside down behind it, staring at this guy with a scary stare. I think she smash the wall with her head. After that, she jumped out of the wall and confront the enemy. She brought a tomb-stone made of wood (so lets call it tomb-wood) and stab it right into this guy's chest. Pay back time. I watched this movie when im still kid, and it was scary for me that time.

Right now im considering this design to be printed on t-shirt again for my next "Corpse Eaters" horror series. What do you think?

I love horror movies..

You have a unique style that defines your work and everyone knows it's yours as soon as they see it. I love the history that comes with this drawing without that the story tells very different, but with it everything makes sense and honestly it makes me appreciate the drawing much more.

aw, thank you so much for your nice comment :) i really appreciate it! and im glad that you like it too.. i really like to share the story of the drawing, especially for personal project like this, not a commission. but im not really good at telling story in english. its very difficult and different from my mother language's structure. but i will always try to write down the background of my drawing for personal projects. especially when the story is so interesting to be shared. thank you so much!

Your welcome:D Your english doesn't seem to be that bad... for the most part at least with your typing everything seems to be for the most part rather fluid and correct. So everything that I have read I've been able to understand.
