More nightmare forest concepts

I'm trying to come up with different styles for the sort of "creepy forest atmosphere" that we're going for in the 2D Studio project. This one being simple and completely void of any kind of obvious "evil face" indication...

...and the second being the complete opposite. Though I guess there's really only one clear face in that one; there's a hell of a lot more I put in, but I ended up knocking them back a bit so it didn't look too corny.

Nightmare concept - take 2

Tried a different, minimal color scheme and I think I'm liking it better...though that's probably because I'm so damn tired of looking at the first one.

Nightmare concept

So this thing started off as a concept piece for a project, then turned into something that's probably way too saturated. The project is for my 2D Studio class. Each group was told to come up with a ghost story set in the woods. So the first week each person in the group was to just come up with concepts for the look - backgrounds, color schemes, etc.

I did a few different looking pieces and here's the first one so far. It's a healthy mix of smudged painting and photo manip.

I know there's no real light source. It originally was coming out of that central hollow with some additional atmospheric light, but that looked...assy. I'll come up with something eventually, but for now it'll just have to remain a nonsensical glow.
