If I had to make a list of the top four horror movie killers, it’d include Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers and Pinhead. Ghostface comes in at a close fifth place, and of course there’s Chucky, Leatherface, Jigsaw, Hannibal Lecter — err, this isn’t the point. Deviant Artist Chris Fulton has done a fantastic job capturing their murderous charm, which I don’t find all that surprising after seeing his amazing Silent Hill art. After the break I have five of the top horror movie killers, and the mystery killer is quite possibly the most death-obsessed of them all.
I just had an idea: Pyramid Head pin-up calendar. Someone get on that.
After the break I have some amazing Silent Hill fan art by Deviant Artist Chris Fulton, who has managed to capture Pyramid Head in all his gym rat glory. Now I can’t help but picture him stuffing raw eggs and protein shakes into the holes in his helmet and trying to impress the nurses by doing curl-ups with his freakishly long sword.
It’s Friday — also known as the absolute worst day of the week. The Evil Within has made today more bearable than most, but with a weekend’s worth of freedom ahead of many of us, it’d be understandable if you wished it were Monday. So if it helps soothe your nerves, I am totally willing to force you to check out this gorgeous Alan Wake fan art.
Oh, that would help? All right, just let me get my powdered wig on (I hear all authorities wear them), and… I’m all set. I order thou to clicketh that Read More link! You’re welcome.
Did you miss our initial post on regarding the Deadite Of The Day contest? If not – don’t worry. We’re accepting submissions up until April 3rd at email@example.com (head inside for the full list of rules)! Winners will be announced daily from March 25th – April 5th (weekends excluded). Submissions will be open the whole time, so if you see something you think you can top… TOP IT!
Today’s winner is Laz Marquez!. He writes in with pretty great new poster for Fede Alvarez’s upcoming remake! In his words, “I wanted to capture the iconic elements of the film while focusing on the horror one would feel by being overcome by an entity outside of themselves. The image of a fearful eye, crying, with the iris/logo overtaking that was something I wanted to come through. The cabin was always secondary to me, as the design implies. It was always the violation of the deadites onto another person that intrigued me. ” You can check out more of his work here!
Remember there are still FIVE winners left to announce next week – so keep entering! Head inside to check out the poster! READ MORE
Ever wonder what some of your favorite video game protagonists — or in the case of Slenderman, antagonists — would look like on an NES? Wonder no more, as Deviant Artist MelolzuGaming has taken it upon himself to answer that very own question. Among his gallery of 8-bitified video game characters are Isaac Clarke from Dead Space, Halo’s Master Chief, Street Fighter’s Ryu, a lone zombie, and Slenderman of… well, pretty much every indie horror game coming out in the near future, actually. I have only one complaint about the characters so far, but let’s take a look at them first before I get into that.
There are mashup posters and then there are mashup posters, and it’s safe to say that this fan-made piece of art falls firmly into the latter category. Deviant Artist ron-guyatt has combined two of my favorite things: John Carpenter’s The Thing and Dead Space by featuring series’ protagonist Isaac Clarke in the iconic movie poster. It’s gorgeous and the timing is perfect with Dead Space 3 releasing next week — that’s February 5th for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. In it Clarke find himself in a situation familiar to fans of The Thing as he battles legions of Necromorphs on the icy planet of Tau Volantis. See the poster in its higher resolution glory after the jump.
For Minecraft fans, the Enderman might not inspire the same fear the Creepers do, but they’re definitely the most unsettling of the many monsters found in the game. Their ethereal presence, pitch black bodies, freakishly long arms, and silent, soul-penetrating gaze give them an air of mystery that’s shared by Slenderman, the legend that inspired them. They also have an annoying fondness for moving blocks around the world, which has led to many a dirt block set atop a tree in the games I’ve played. Deviant Art user DevBurmak has crafted one of the more unnerving interpretations of the Enderman, giving it an almost alien-like appearance. Check it out after the break, but remember to never look directly into its eyes.
If you’ve ever had an eight hour Super Mario Brothers marathon and found yourself thinking about what a survival horror Mario game would look like, then wonder no more, because I’m about to do two things for you. The first thing I’m offering is an answer to that burning question, and the second is the distinct possibility of a couple months worth of nightmares. What I have waiting for you in the dark recesses of this post is some fan art by Deviant Art user Shadow-Shana. It’s amazing, and terrifying, but mostly amazing. Check it out!
We’ve all seen plenty of fan art, whether it’s at conventions or even on the B-D forums. I’ve seen all sorts of stuff that ranges from terrible to great, but you got to give it up for fans who put their own spin on their favorite characters just because they love them so damn much.
Italian graphic artist Fabrizio Fioretti got put in the spotlight earlier today when /Film shared a few of his Ghostbuster pieces, which have the cartoony appearance of recent DreamWorks Animation titles like How To Train Your Dragon (and maybe it resembles the character renders seen in the Wii version of the Ghostbuster game released a few years back, too). Fioretti claims he made them “no particular reason” and he’s just a huge fan.
The Venkman portrait can be seen beyond the break. Check out the rest of the Ghostbusters and more of Fioretti’s work on his website.
