Finished project for my Illustration course, dedicated to Robert Englund's version of Freddy Krueger, whom of which has fueled my work for quite some time. :)

I went with Freddy taring thru children's wallpaper because my class responded to it the most out of my 18 sketches. It wasn't a personal favorite of mine, but I went ahead, and man am I happy I did. I adore the contrast between sweet, innocent childhood, to a horrible, burned murderer. In my sketch, you could see more of Freddy, but then my teacher suggested I hid him more, something about not seeing the complete monster is worse than seeing them whole. Like in the movie "Psycho", you don't see the actual stabbing, but your mind fills in the blanks. I loved that idea, so I hid Freddy as much as I could without totally obscuring him.

But please, let me know what you think. I have to get this printed out Tuesday, SO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know if there's something you guys don't like about this illustration. The more honest you are, the better grade I'll get. Please and thank you :heart:

:star: EDIT :star:

I have changed the color of his eyes to a lesser, not so "holymonkeypooplets" green and I added the shine to them as well. Does it look better? Or should I change the eyes again?

Hey guys, another one of my classmates is on dA too! Go look at her project too, it's House! x3 ~ [link] I also resized and edited some shading. Howssit?

Wowwewoawoawoa! :wow: This is magnificent! I really love the way you have Freddy's claws ripping through the children's wallpaper and how you have half of his face showing the through the tear. Freddy's psycotic, chesire cat grin is also just the icing on the cake.

This is very symbolic in a way, because it really reflects the "Freddy the Monster" personality. The child molester character trait. It reprsents having innocence being teared away.

If you were my student, I would be giving you an A+, an 100, or whatever is the highest mark you can get. Keep up the excellent work, m' dear. :clap:

Over all I like it, but i'd have to say that there are two things to consider. The first is that his blades seem to not be coming from anywhere. With the angle of the blades, it seems as though you should be able to see the blade of the middle finger through the hole in the paper over the ring, or at least part of his hand.
Second, I think the amount of paper folding back vs. the width of the hole in the paper are a bit inconsistent. Particularly with the small and index fingers' holes.

Hope that helps and that you get a good grade :)
