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?

:star::star: EDIT2 :star::star:

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 :)

WOW that is creepy XD I think the only advice I can offer is maybe make the torn paper less shiny, perhaps remove the lines all together to give it a more "papery" look.

I like of how you made his index finger, wall-shredded-line, down more than the others.

I do love of how you can see both of his eyes (just about anyway), but I think it would have been much more creepy-er, with just his left eye. Not exactly a critque, cause I don't know the difference between critque and personal comment. ^^;

I love this! It's really good, and creepy.

One small nitpick, but it may be more personal preference, 'cause I'm kinda obsessive XD His eyes are grey, not green. Again, it may just be personal preference.

Well, with gray eyes on film (just in general too), they always tend to be a different colour. Even the shirt you wear could affect your eye colour.
For instance, Gerard Butler has gray eyes; but in all of his films, they appear blue.
I'm not bashing on you or anything, I'm just stating my observation on people with gray eyes. XD

Haha thanks! :D

Actually I looked at 15+ pictures, screenshots, and re-re-rewatched the movies, and more often they're green rather than grey. This confused me months ago and I sorta obsessed over it to the point that I wiki'ed it. There's pictures of him with grey eyes, but the rest, including the giant poster and lifesized cardboard cutout I have of him, they be green.

I'll be honest, I think I made his eyes TOO green :/ I'll prolly fix that later on, fix them to match this shade ~ [link]

Thank you for your opinion, really :) :heart::heart::heart:

I've actually noticed that too. In "Wse Craven's New Nightmare" his eyes kinda look almost like a sea green in one scene.

I've got a ton of Freddy pictures, from the internet and a calender, and in most of those, his eyes are grey. XD Eyes can be weird like that.

Oh Robert, him and his morphin' eyes o_o

I guess I prefer green over grey a lot too, I find green eyes appealing. I used to draw Freddy with grey eyes a while back, maybe I'll just switch them around since Robbie's eyes are magical like that xD LOL

The kiddy wallpaper perhaps might have been better as the top left and bottom right are a bit blank, but otherwise a flawless piece of work, good on ya :clap:.
