Horror Challenge 2023 - 5 Stages of Grief


I’m a bit late to this challenge, but I’ll still try and see if I can’t finish this within the deadline. Thank you FlippedNormals for hosting this challenge.

I’m an artist who can’t draw to save my life, so I decided to sketch things out in the 3D space right away instead. After many mistakes, failed ideas, and countless scrolling down through Pinterest, here’s the result of my day 1 brainstorm:

These are some of the “main” ideas I came up with. I decided to go with the right-most.

Still unsure if I’ll make this creature a dark shadow creature or more of a grotesque flesh and blood body horror kind of monster.

Major changes to the overall shape, but still the same idea.

Some of my first attempts with the lighting, none of these are my final submission btw:

I call the last one the Confused Forest because clearly the artist is confused with the lighting colours. The cat doesn’t have a shadow because she’s a ghost.

If you haven’t already done it, remember to post your result in the final submissions thread today so your work can be considered for one of the prizes :slight_smile: Only a few hours left to go now! Countdown Timer – Countdown to Nov 23, 2023 in London, England

Thank you for the reminder <3
None of these is my final render btw, I’m still fiddling with the lighting and compiling all the necessary images to post on the final submission page.
