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
Freddy Krueger(c) - Wes Craven, New Line Cinamas
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]
