NIGHTMARE OF THE WEEK #4
Winner of the NOW#2 - GRENOGS with this beautiful image:
New round is on, well done everybody for great works in the last round!
THIS WEEK's TOPIC:
A little while ago I did this self-assigned task in my sketchbook and it was called Freak Show. Now I think it might be a good time to bring this idea back and see what You can come up with...
It's all about the circus of oddities, a bunch of mutants going from one town to another and doing the show for common people craving sensation...
I want you to design your own original freak and post it here with description(that would be a short bio of him/her).
Ok. Let's start nowDeadline is Sept 1st
NIGHTMARE OF THE WEEK #4
lol, i won something, wooohoooooooooo, now where's this saw you promised me? i have some large pieces of meat here i need carving
By the way, nice topic.
Looks like I'm back just in time to start a new one of these.
nice little self promotion Grim..... can we crit or are you just bragging.....
I like that it doesn't have to be gory. most of my nightmares arent
To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.
Chaos- this is the topic for you...not that there is anything wrong with gory.
Looks good Chaotic Knight! Wanna win another round eh?I like the way you made it look like a poster on the wall.
how do people put writing under their names?, all i got is a poxy registered user.
Cheer grim, will do when i find something worth putting in
Enough airbrushes - I am back to oils. Here's my freak - he's more like mental hospital inmate but that's where we put freaks today - the asylums.
Dear colleagues, here’s Henry Serpent, also known as Third-Eyed Henry. His skull contains tissue resembling fully functional human eye and a jaw with few teeth. He was born with this distortion and some authorities say that this may be remains of the twin fetus literally consumed by Henry during his very early stage of development. If that’s true we might expect to find in his skull some other traits of his twin. This theory may be confirmed only by vivisection or occasionally autopsy though. It might be as well some kind of mutation. Mentally Henry is very calm person but sometimes he suffers of severe attacks of anger like some other part of his nature is trying to get out of him. That might be dangerous for staff of our facility and even for himself.
"Mr. Harolds! John Daily from the Midnorth Monitor, I'd like to ask you some questions about your attraction -"
"You mean Willie?"
"Um, if that's what he's called-"
"Sure is. Willie... oh Willie, Willie, Willie..."
"Uh, so if I may ask a few questions"
"Where does he come from?"
"Found 'em in the dump. Gerald n me were lookin for a new fridge for Frankie the midget to sleep in, when als a sudden we see this thing movin' over by the pharmasy stuff right? We goes over there and there's ol' Willie. Never saw nuthin like it in mah life...
Anyways he wuz just crawlin 'round, looked 'bit weak, couldn't do much. So I had these Oreos with me right? So I gives one to him and then the next, then all's you know he ates a whole carton of 'em! That perked him right up, ever since then s'all we been feedin' em."
"So... what does he do, what's the attraction?"
"What's the attraction?! He's a [censored]in' freak that's what's the [censored]in' 'traction!"
"Alright uh what about-"
"Though this one time he gave em a real show. Big guy from the audience he comes round and he's gonna give ol Willie a bop on the head right? Well s'soon as Wille got wise he goes up to 'em and rips both his arms off! Hooooooey! We had quite the night then..."
"Wait, so you mean he's dangerous?"
"So, my god, I'm looking at him right now and... well why isn't he shackled?"
"Pfft, I would if he'd stop breakin' em. I need shackles for other shows too, no sense makin' him break more or more... besides, s'long as we feed him oreos he does whatever the [censored] we want."
"Alright well, what happens if you run out of oreos?"
" eb-... uh.... well I trys not to think about that..... jesus, FRANK! for christ sake I said watch 'em! He gots another monkey again!"

Found in a jar of formaldahyde, feeding on a fetus preserved for science. This Eigth Wonder is neither man nor beast. Somewhere in between, this oddity has come into being. An unfortunate incident with a common housecat has left this creature with only one good eye. Step back kids. Though this creature has the heart of an angel, you never want to get near him when he has his sweets in hand. He may seem small, but like a rabid dog, he'll take off your fingers without a moments hesitation.

Nice one Virtual. What's he holding?
It's one of those candy corn halloween candies. Guess I should have put in the description already, but it will be in there. He's kind of a small freak.
Wow this is totally cool. I didn't know this got started up. Thanks for running this Grim! Now I feel like I truly have a place where I can let my hair down.
I don't know if I'll be able to make it on this one, but I'll certainly try. Woo hoo FREAKSHOW! Speaking of which, I was at the Hollywood walk of stars this weekend and lots to inspire for a Freakshow NOW. Like a 6'4" supergross Chewbacca that looked like he crawled out of a dumpster after an all night bender.
chewbacca reminds me of a yorkshire terrier, and when they get wet they look like a hairy rats. maybe chewbacca is just the heigher evolutionary stage of the yorkshire terrier, very similer in the same way we humans are to apes.
Manuel- I'll try. I've been already criticises for doing self-promotion here by our "dear" Chaos so I don't know if I should... And I've been working on my game a lot lately too.
Corspufo- I'm always glad to see people who like the idea of this activity. I'll be very happy to see you participate!
Grenogs- I like yorkshire terriers! My childhood neighbours had two of those and I loved them! (Until one day they got ran over by a car in front of my house)...
see, now that would never have happened if they had a chewbacca, though, i think the person driving the car would then have had his arms torn off
I dont think even an AT-AT could kill a chewbacca, they move so slow that by the time its leg hits the floor chewbacca has already stolen a bike and zoomed of to catch up with han solo
Ok, let's say chewbacca has to fight batman. Who wins?
Hey guys, I am new to this thread and I am glad I find this activity, really looks like fun and a nice excuse to come up with gory and the sickest stuff. I'll make sure to stick around for future events.
Well, probably this is kinda cheating but I had made this design some years ago based on the different senses and when I read about the freak show, it remind me of it. This is the one I have done previously.
So this is the one revisited (excuse my dirty pencilwork ). It kinda looks more like a monster than a freak (what are the differences anyways? ). Since the deadline is this Saturday, I doubt I can paint it by then, maybe some heavy pencil rendering...
So here is the description:
Ladies and gentleman, never in your lifetime you will meet a girl like this that will make you experience sensations that you never thought that existed. She will surprise you, astonished you, fill you with awe. You will never would want to get into the "pants" of this girl! I present you, Devalicious.

Are we allow to critique peoples work here? If not, my bad.
ChaoticKnight Like the whole poster idea and colors used. Though, I am confused whether he is the one that is melting or does he melts? Can't quite tell now.
Manuel_Calavera Like his face expression and pose, looks very comical and natural. Probably it is still a WIP, but I would suggest to define more the snake aspect.
Rhineville Dude, nice pencil rendering! Like how you use it to go across and model the form. That description/ story is really funny too.
VirtualSurreality Freakingly cute The candy bar is a nice addition.
Ok well if it was the Batman I saw on the Walk of Stars, Chewie would not only rip Batman's arms off and beat him to death with them, but he'd steal ol' Bat's lunch money for some booze.
Thanks Grim, I'll get my stuff up shortly.
i defenetly think chewbacca would win againsts batman, hes just a wierdo with cool gadgets, however if its was chewbacca against spiderman, then its a different story, i think spiderman would deffenetly have the upper hand, especially with all that web crap he has, plus with his spidey sences he could here chewbacca as soon as he had landed on earth.
