Things from Silent Hill 4 by Ji-man Things from Silent Hill 4 by Ji-man
I dont play much videogames anymore, but last weekend I bought a game. Silent Hill 4: The Room. I bought it because Im a huge fan of Silent Hill. I played it whole weekend and today I felt that I have to draw something. These are some weird monsters that grow from ground.

I can hear them growing... I have an affliction of affection for the water prison.

lol its called a Whitestool and you don't wanna know what it represents! XD
HaZZarD07 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2010
What do they represent?
GothicJellyBean Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2010
um... a penis
Spartan773 Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2010
actually they just represent fungi.
GothicJellyBean Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2010
everything in silent hill has a real meaning to it. Just like how the black ones represent an umbilical cord. :L
Spartan773 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2010
no. just just represent fungi. SH4 isn't as sexual as SH2.
GothicJellyBean Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2010
Are you kidding me? The whole game is based on that... That's why Walter exsist and everything is happening. I don't mean this in a rude way, but have you ever looked it up?

"Toadstools / Whitestools Snakelike demon fungus that grows in tight groups. Come in two varieties, Toadstools, which are purple, and Whitestools, which are appropriately white. Supposedly representing either sperm or umbilical cords."
Spartan773 Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2010
i prefer to go by the silent hill wikia, a bit more accurate source of silent hill based knowledge.


Toadstools are fungus-like creatures that inhabit the realms of Silent Hill 4: The Room. They are stationary and don't pose much of a threat. Toadstools are tall, slender fungi that bulge out at the top of their stems, often equaling Henry Townshend's height. The red-brown color of the fungus terminates in a fleshy patch, and sometimes they take the shape of a human head locked in a scream.
Another nearly-identical variety exists called Whitestools. They function in the same manner as the Toadstool, differing only in that Whitestools are usually in tighter groups. They are white and tentacle-like which terminate in snake-like heads.

These fungi represent what they are: fungi. Like fungi present in our own world, they are signs of decay and death.

So that's what those represent? Huh.... I'm disappointed. I thought there was more to them...

Oh well...
Spartan773 Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2010
probably not, considering that most of silent hill 4's enemies and haunts are based around Walter. silent hill 2's the more blatantly sexual one, i'd look them up on a silent hill wiki.

lol, yeah sorry for the let down! ^^

With the vestigial eyes, these are cooler than the game version. They are actually my favorite enemy from SH4 though, just how odd and simple they are and the way they wave :)

everytime i ran into those things they always seemed to scare the shit out of me, even when i did expect them lol
nice work :3

CheeseRoller Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2007

In the game, they scared me, but your pic looks cso cute I want to hug them XD Aww just look at them--they need a hug
Vulpes-Wolf Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2006
Those things disturbed me greatly. Me and my friend figured they look like brains, so we called them Braintrees. :p
LavenderGray Featured By Owner May 1, 2006
Oh man, those things are creepy. I'm not sure exactly why, but they are.
TtotheAFFY Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2006
I don't think I've ever seen anyone draw these things before. You did a lovely job on them, they really suit your drawing style and if possible, they look even creepier than they did in the game!
AmyTheSpiritSeeker Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
those things are by far the ICKIEST monsters in all of SH. (the eeriest would be the damn twin things, also from SH4)
Magelet Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
These fungus creatures made my skin crawl. >.>
Sweet... a fellow Silent Hill fan! Awesome job!
Bloodpoisoned Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2006

Incredible work. Almost a :+fav:, but i don't like the fact that they come from a videogame.
rajal-tikana Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004
I love those two headed baby things :o but these guys are interesting as well :P Kick ass job!
flipsideshooze Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2004
sweet work... loved the game aswell :)
onnawufei Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2004
:+fav: for sure. Personally I thought the mushrooms were great, a nice easy enemy to beat the shit out of every now and then was welcome.

This seems sort of Roman Dirge-ey to me... but that could just be my tired brain.
ashryn Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2004  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The mushrooms weren't my favorite.

But this is a damned nice rendition. X)
rubbe Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
