Ever since I heard Darkness in Legend say “Sunshine is my destroyer!” I’ve had this mental image in my head of that poor demon cowering under layers of blankets and wailing “I hate horrible wholesome sunshine!” like Madam Mim and I can’t get over it lmao
#kicking his hooves like an angry toddler and all #even better if it’s in Tim Curry’s voice like in the film lol #legend 1985#darkness #lord of darkness #imagines#randomness #(Darkness: waaaaah I hate sunshine!) #(me: dude calm the fuck down *throws another blanket at him*) #can’t remember his tag lmao
Here’s a way more in-depth version of how I go about making those cracked glass looking acrylic textures. I recently put on another layer of black over top of this, and I think that I will go ahead and splatter it a little bit with white acrylic ink before I mount a print to it. Really, just trying to get as weird as possible in the studio 😜

Except for one thing. Match doesn’t give credit where it’s due. The makeup is originally from the 1985 film Legend. It was for the villain, Darkness, played by Tim Curry.
In this video, the character’s Satan. Darkness wasn’t Satan. He was the opposite of Light.
So, this video basically ripped off the makeup (with permission, I hope) and changed the character’s name. I would’ve loved it if instead they’d kept him as Darkness, who, after being betrayed by his love Lili (in the movie) goes to a dating app.
I saw Legend when it opened, and it was a bad film. Especially with Tom Cruise as the hero.
I was there for the Older Dangerous Monster Man Who’s Mad For The Innocent Young Woman scenes. Even covered in latex, Tim Curry made Darkness smoulder. He’s 10 times hotter than David Bowie’s Jareth.
For those who like to screech about such silly things, in these scenes Mia Sara was 18 and Tim Curry was 36. 18 year age gap. And hot as hell.
It’s a touch of Hades and Persephone. Darkness abducts Lili, then seduces her.
