Why Insomnia is Healthy ver 2

Posted May 18, 2006, 12:19:12 AM UTC
This has taken me a total of about 5 hours non stop to complete. Freddy happens to be my most favorite horror movie villain of all time so I thought I'd pay tribute. Do you guys have any idea just how hard it was to do his face and actually make it look burned and melted? >< Well it wasn't easy.  But here it is. Hope you guys like it. And the beautiful animeboytoykoibito/ Melissa is the mastermind behind my background on this so make sure you give her some praise too. Oh and whatever you do... don't fall asleep...


Hey guys there were a few things bugging me about Freddy's hat. It didn't look as realistic as the rest of him, so I added some texture to it using a grain tool and also burned it in some areas to give it an aged look. Anyway, I like this version alot better. What say you?

      Why thank you m'dear. Smile Freddy is my absolute favorite movie villain of all time. I am so glad that you like this pic enough to fave it. ^_^ There is still a bit of work I need to do to fix some things up on him, but thank you anyway. Now I am all smiles. *giggles*
      • Jul 31, 2006, 12:51:36 PM UTC

      Indeed I have been. Well, I was looking around many places trying to find where I had stashed you. And then this guy came in and I was like "Mr. Freddy Kruger! I love you. Can I draw you?" And he was like "No you little twit! Leave me alone or I will shred you to ribbons!" And I was like "Awww..." and I had a sad face like this---> Sad And he was like "I SAID NO!" So then I went back to what I was doing. But I forgot what I was doing so I just got hammered and started dancing on the table tops. And I don't remember much after that. But anyway, what was I saying? Oh yeah... I found you now.

    YES! nice pic!~
    • May 22, 2006, 4:45:13 PM UTC
      Why thank you hun. I had a blast drawing Freddy. He is my favorite horror movie villain of all time. His face was so hard to do. And even still I am not completely happy with it, but it works. At least he is slightly recognizable. Thanks for the review hun. Hug

    Hello Kristy!Wave Long time no talk. Sorry about that... I think I should pm you later... Well, on to the critic. It's nice to see some Freddy Crouger fanart.Grin I sure haven't seen one before, and I know why you did this too.Giggle What can I say, he does look like himself! And I like his finger-blade thing and the background. Yes This is such a neat idea! This pic is cool.Grin
    There are just a few things that bother me. Freddy's face looks bit blurred whereas the text looks too sharp. I think if you made his face sharper by defining the outline of his features it would look better. Whereas other areas like the hat and the back of his neck could use some blurring so that he doesn't look so cutout. His features would look more realistic that way.Smile I hope it's ok that I roasted, I didn't see what kind of a crit you want on this.Sweat Drop Nice job nevertheless!Hug

      Heheh... I absolutely LOVE Freddy Krueger. Smile And of course I don't mind the roast dear. I like to know what people really think of what I do as long as they are constructive with it like you are. Smile Now then... about his face, I actually tried to blend some areas in so it wouldn't look too sharp and drastic where all of the skin folds. If anything I may go back and blend some of the words though. That may help but I actually love the way the sharpness of the words comes with the softness of his features. I think that is what makes him pop out more. But of course I am on medication so I could just be off on another planet. Laughing Thank you so very much for always lending me your help and for always taking the time to help me improve. I truly appreciate it. Hug

        You're welcome.Smile Well, that's the way I would've done it, but you're the artist and you do what you think is best.Yes And I'm glad to offer you artistic advise whenever I can.Giggle Mwah! Btw, what medication you're on?Innocent Wink

          Well, I have a disorder called Paranoid Personality Disorder. And I am on a medicine called Ativan. It helps with the anxiety and other side effects due to that.

            Omg, I thought you were just joking.Blink Are you alright?
            • May 29, 2006, 11:35:02 AM UTC
              Yeah I am allright. I have a paranoia disorder and I am on medicine for some of the side effecs that come with the disorder. It stabilizes me. Which is a good thing.
  • May 18, 2006, 8:01:14 PM UTC
    Impressive!!! This is really good! Keep it up!
    • May 19, 2006, 10:40:04 AM UTC
      Thank you. Smile Well I changed a few things now if you look at it again. The hat was getting to me and some other people as well ( Laughing ) so I aged it a bit to fit in with the rest of the picture. I am going to draw all the old school horror movie villains. I am working on my next victim right now. Smile Thanks for the comments. Hug
      • May 19, 2006, 4:59:44 PM UTC
        That modification perfected it! I knew it was missing something but I couldn't pinpoint it... Now it is AWESOME!!!!!!!
        • May 22, 2006, 10:59:55 AM UTC
          Why thank you. I think I just needed to burn it a little more. The hat was looking way too crisp and clean and not quite as realistic as the rest of him does. Funny how much a bot of darkening and some texture will change things drastically, huh? Thanks again. Hug
          • May 26, 2006, 10:36:33 PM UTC
            Yeah. The darkening of the hat perfected it. You're welcome!

    ooohh.....it's Freddy Krueger!!I really like the title.."Why Insomnia is Healthy"..it's so that he doesn't come for you!! Anyways, nice jobs, guys. He looks really evil. Love the background, too.
    • May 18, 2006, 11:01:32 AM UTC
      Haha! Yup and Melissa is also the mastermind behind the title as well. I will leave the thinking to her. She is so much better at it than I am. Laughing Anyways, I am pretty happy with how Freddy turned out. At least he is recognizable as Freddy. I think he looks deliciously evil. Evil And Melissa deserves all the credit in the world for doing such a great job on the background. She is so amazing. Thanks again hun. Love ya. Hug
  • May 18, 2006, 6:46:33 AM UTC
    Wow. Very nice job. Very Happy The words definately add to the effect, and you did a great job on the melted skin, LadyAnime. Hug Love to ya both!
    • May 18, 2006, 10:59:02 AM UTC
      Smile Thank you love. I am thinking about doing pics of Jason and Michael Meyers to go along with this one, but it depends on how lazy I am. Smile That melted skin was a pain. It took a long time to do that. Even still I am not 100%happy with the skin, but hell, I love it anyway. And the words add that perfect creepy touch to it. She did a wonderful job with that. Thank you again for the amazing compliments.Hug
  • May 17, 2006, 9:22:55 PM UTC
    So awsome, you both did a wonderful job. Big Smile
    • May 18, 2006, 10:56:43 AM UTC
      Thanks sweetheart. We had fun working on this together. Oh hush Melissa we did too have fun. Ahem... don't mind Melissa. She hasn't had her medication yet. Sweat Drop Anyways, it took me a long time to get Freddy done, but it works. And I think it is worth it. Freddy's the greatest. Hug
      • May 19, 2006, 9:15:19 AM UTC
        Big Smile Gotta love the FRED
        • May 19, 2006, 10:41:00 AM UTC
          Oh definitely. The rest of the villains have nothing on him. Oh and thanks for the fave babe. Wink I am working on the next victim in my lineup as we speak. You'll just have to wait and see which one it is. Hug
  • May 17, 2006, 7:02:00 PM UTC
    OOOOOOOOOOhhh wow so kewl!!! It almost looks like in the background all the people he killed wrote that. It is so awesome Kristy and it is so awesome how you Melissa put the words in. You guys did a GREAT job. I think I am going to add to my favs. Yes I am going to do that right now in fact. You guys would be a great team on aa team project I mean if you guys were like in school ofcourse (heehee). Well what else to say...hmmm...I love Freddy!!!!!! I mean if I could be any serial killer I would definetly be him because you sould kill the people in their dreams not in the hmm...what's the word I am looking for... I guess I will say awakenessess yes yes I know what you are thinking it is my own word to answer yourr mind. Well also another thing I couldn't be a serial killer because I hate looking at blood and gore in real life but I love scary movies I know I know it doesn't make sense but it's true. I love watching blood and gore on scary movies but when I see blood and gore in real life I feel sick. I am one confused girl. Ok I just relized something I just went way way off topic. WOW I realy do have migrane. Ok I have to go lay down and get some rest. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK TO THE BOTH OF YOU!!!!! Good picture you guys. Love to the both of you.


    • May 17, 2006, 7:16:40 PM UTC
      LoL Thank you! I'm glad that you like how I put them wordsies together. But really Kristy did all the Hard work Laughing I just kind of... typed, is all. Tongue Well... I'm in school But Kristy isnt, she got through with that already. >_< High school is soooooo not nice to Freshmen in honors. lol but if Kristy were 14/15 like me and came to my school, you best believe that me and her would be doing some projects together! lol But seriously, Didnt she do sooooooo good with Freddy? I was all "WHOA" When I saw It lol.

      Anyway, Thanks! And I hope me And her DO get to do more stuf like this together Tongue
      • May 17, 2006, 8:16:35 PM UTC
        Pshaw! He was really hard to draw. Mostly all them danged skin folds and everything. But my love, you have done such a wonderful job with them thar wordses. I couldn't be happier with how it came out. My other idea was going to have Freddy's full body silhouette coming out of the black background. I was going to have him all blacked out like a shadow and have him standing in a doorway of beaming white light. But I thought the words would be even creepier. Evil I love it. Thank you again so much for all of your help and we will definitely do more projects together in the future. You can count on it. Wink All my love to you. Hug
      • May 20, 2006, 10:24:37 AM UTC

      Hug Thank you Alyssa. I am glad you like him. I worked my butt off coloring all his melted skin in. But he's worth it. If people don't like Freddy, I will send him to them to do some damage. Evil Freddy is the greatest. Always has been my favorite. Melissa did do a wonderful job with the background wordses. I just told her what I wanted and the rest was all her. Go Mellie!
