* Seeing as it's a surrealist horror game [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness from the point of view]] of a painter who's [[SanitySlippage slowly going insane]] (or possibly retracing an already completed descent into madness), ''VideoGame/LayersOfFear'' contains a ''lot'' of creative variations on this trope, to the point that the line between CreepyChangingPainting and ChaosArchitecture begins to blur as everything is slowly consumed by paint.

[[spoiler: It comes to a head in the Wife ending, where just after the artist thinks he finally completed the perfect portrait of his wife, her image slowly warps out of the canvas and ''[[EvilLaugh laughs at him]]'', while changing into a deformed, charred figure.]]

**This also happens in the first episode. Junior stares at his family photo before his mum, dad and him (in the photo) turn into franken-asparaguses causing Junior to run up the stairs and into his room.

* An easy to miss example in ''VideoGame/{{Blood}}''. Several levels feature a painting that seemingly depicts baby Jesus being held by Mary. Take the time to observe it, and you'll see that [[NightmareFuel Mary mummifies from a young woman and a skeleton, and then back again]]. Not that surprising, considering you only traipse through areas that are, or have been, under [[ReligionOfEvil the Cabal's]] influence.

** It can also happen in the cathedral level; if Paul's or Peter's sanity level drops very low, one of the pictures in the side room near the cathedral's entrance will turn into a picture of a zombie.
