Horror Challenge
Hey guys, letís get a challenge going!

Clallenge Theme - Horror
Model and texture a character that would be seen in a horror film or game, comic etc, think Hellraiser, Jason, Freddie, Resident Evil, Silent Hill etc.

The character can be humanoid, animal or whatever you fancy, just make him/her/it mean!

The character can be a bust or full/part, can be low, mid or high poly. If you want to add a background in there go for it but itís the character thatís the main focus.

Texturing is allowed as well and any scenery that you may want to add, although the main focus of the challenge is the model.

Software -
Any welcome, though all work must be yours, from scratch, post up regular progress pictures so that we can see a development of the model.

Time -
2 Months (and a bit) so the deadline is 16th October 10pm GMT

A week before the deadline I will set up a final entry thread, post the final entry in here as well as any other shots that you want to show off your model, but keep to a single "presentation pose".

Results -
Via a poll for all finished entries, so you guys will be voting for what you like the most.

Any questions with the above please post them here and I will answer them.

To Enter

To enter create a thread with your name and Horror Challenge, so for example the thread subject for me would be

gster123 - Horror Challenge

Post your progress/development in here for comments and crits from other members.

I have set up a reference sticky for some ideas.

Prize!
THe winner of the competition gets $100 USD from Simply Maya as well as a shiney winners medal to post in their signature.

Lets get it on and good luck to all!

Steve

Hey Steve, good to see you've got things going again in the challenge area!

Loving the theme, I've been away from the forums for a while but you've just enticed me back.....

Will be working quite a bit over the next couple of weeks, but will try to get something started and a thread going soon.

I have an interesting idea. I'm pretty busy with university application stuff but I might have time (I do want a nice piece to be able to show any interviewers, so this might fit the bill nicely).
We'll see, two month is quite a while....

I'll hold my hands up and tell the truth, I completly forgot about the discussion, sorry.

elephant - I put the two months so people can get it finished, one month challenges (and battles) seem to be too tight on times, you can always finish it sooner.

It may be two months but it flies past if your grabbing a couple of hours here and there.

I have a few sculpting base-meshes floating around if people feel they need a jump start.

I will post some time today.........still workin on what is easy for me to do as I will be doing the head Tut as a ref....

Still trying to figure out a character...or whether to do my own. An existing one will probably be quicker? Ive never done this before.

cheers bullet

Ok I cant really find anything that stands out (not a horror fan). So I will post when I have designed a 'Black Slayer" from Sethanon. I will have to re-read the book a bit LOL. To get the character definition.
