Finding yourself in situations similar to the ones in these Nicolas Ferrand paintings would probably be a nightmare for most. Whether it’s a modern setting or the middle ages, each Ferrand illustration depicts monsters of various sizes making life hell for humanity. They range from alien tripods destroying cities a la ‘War of the Worlds’ to overgrown octopi sinking pirate ships and stealing their treasure -- the people in Ferrand’s illustrations just can’t seem to catch a break.

Nicolas Ferrand is a Montreal-based concept designer who specializes in rendering realistic depictions of imaginary things. Many of his paintings look as though they’re photographs, which makes his mountain-sized monsters that much more unnerving to look at. If his illustrations seem familiar, it’s probably because you’ve seen his work in high-profile video games. Stats for Mountain-Sized Monster Depictions Trending: Older & Buzzing
