Most of us enjoy the addictive car games where we have to drive down the highways, participate in the great races or patrol the city. Incredible graphics and captivating competitions cause the adrenaline rush and it is impossible to pry yourself away from the game. One more thing that constitutes the key point that should be mentioned turns out to be the expressive 3d cars and car concepts that are created especially for these 3d games. Starting the game, you choose the one you like and the scenario you prefer and then you dive immediately in the 3D world where you spend the enthralling time on the road.

The haunted mind can give birth to horror and terrifying dreams. These dreams turn into nightmares and seize us at the darkest nights. They arouse our fears, stir blood in veins and make us believe in the most aweful things. It is a notorious fact that mysterious and unusual things evoke our interest and stir imagination. We can’t understand them, try to find some reasonable explanations and then come to the conclusion that we have to take as an axiom that these paranormal phenomena really exist. This theme is also very popular among digital artists who add breathtaking horror illustrations to their portfolios especially before Halloween. The Halloween art is inspired by mysticism and feature the expressive artworks showing various infernal creatures. Their macabre tone and gloomy colors leave the lasting impression and sometimes they can be called even stunning.
Well, let’s admire some really amazing examples of the Halloween art presented in today’s collection.
