So, I created Freddy Krueger in 3D… I’m a huge fan of Wes Craven‘s A Nightmare on Elm Street(1984) and have been since I watched the first film as a kid. Freddy Krueger is without a doubt on of the best movie villains of all time, particular when portrayed by Robert Englund. I loved re-watching the movies for this project, listening to the soundtrack while modeling. Hope you enjoy the result as much as I did creating it.

Update: Wrote a Making of: Freddy Krueger
I started out modeling the whole character, but as I began to work with the model it became clear that I liked the up and close rendition of Freddy mush better. I wanted so see into his eyes.
The modeling is done in 3ds Max and to a large extend ZBrush. The rendering is done with Mental Ray in 3ds Max.
The image below shows the model rendered with a Mike Andrew shader to show some of the details.
