    Default Twisted Horror (Nightmare on Elm street) - Freddy as a Massage Therapist

    Hello, Everyone! This is my first time posting on the ZBrush Central forums, as well as partaking in a competition. I feel that this is a great opportunity for me, and I would like to do more competitions like this in the future!

    I have been playing around with a few different ideas and I decided to go with Freddy Krueger as a Massage Therapist. I came across an image that has a good setup for a scene, and I just quickly etched in Freddy on top of the image.

    Original Image:

    Altered Image:

    It is very, very roughly painted over - I added some wounds on the patient, and massage oil/lotion in Freddy's left hand.

    I will begin post w.i.p's as soon as I can!

    I first thought that`s salt instead of lotion.. anyways, looking very relaxing. Ouch! Nice idea!

    Thanks for the positive feedback, guys!

    I have gotten some time to start working on Krueger today, spent about 2 hours getting the basic shape of the face, and around another hour to get the teeth made.

    Here is a quick BPR render in different views. Really, really early stage still on the model just getting the shapes in. Still needs a bit of refining, and then start the deterioration in the skin.

    Some more updates on the character - I have completed the detailing for the face. It took a few days and countless hours rummaging through references trying to get good angles to work from as reference. A quick render of the results:

    Full Character view (Basic pose for now) - The rest of the clothing is being planned out still, and the claw are currently being worked on.

    Here are some additional items that I have been working on the side for the scene:

    These are just blocked out for the time being, refinement of detail will come later!

    It's been awhile since I've posted I've had to put it off for awhile and now I'm rushing through everything. My apologies for not taking step-by-step instructions for each piece that I've been working on right now, but I gave a basic description as to what I did for each of the following pieces. Still a lot of work to do before the final deadline of the submission, but I thought I'd do a quick update before then.

    Here's the Claw and the parts that went into it:

    Here's a couple more updates, the arms and the shoes. The shoes are using the Onitsuka Tiger all white as reference; the logos for that. (Copyright was a concern to me but it's not going to be used for distribution, just for art). I misplaced the logo alpha's used, but they are the straight forward Onitsuka logo.

    Finally, here's the basic block out for the whole scene:

    What's in the scene zoomed out:

    Going to finish polishing up the characters, then move on the the rest of the props. More updates soon!

    Before I post the final render, I just wanted to show this result of the polypaint:
