I was introduced to Freddie as a kid and he scared the shit out of me. I was always fascinated by an older girl I knew who had posters on her wall and and actual leather glove with knives on her bookcase. I thought she was cool as fuck, especially as I was likely to wet myself just hearing the freaky children singing 1, 2 Freddies coming for you...
I drawn Freddie a few times in the past but it was always a bit rubbish as his skin is so detailed. As I'm trying to teach myself to sketch again I thought what better way to do that that focus on a rapist, paedo, murdering drream stalker with a burnt face and homemade wolverine style claws. Work in progress so will keep posting more..
After 3 nights I've picked up the main details of the skin, face and jumper, still to add the claw and background elements and then finish the shading to get some depth. Realised (nothing new I'm sure) that little cotton buds make for perfect blending and shading. Gives a nice soft feel to the pencil shading on dark areas.
Day 4: Added in the background, glove and knife highlights and tried to blend it all together a bit more using some cotton wool and tissue paper.
Final Sketch, darkened slightly in Photoshop but unedited. Fairly pleased. Jumper could be much better and more detailed. Think the skin needs more depth but happy at my first attempt.
