Childhood cartoon and movie characters are typically remembered as warm and welcoming. We have nostalgic feelings and recall what it was like to be a child. After seeing these remakes by Australian designer Wil Hughes, you probably won’t feel the same way. This artist transforms well-known characters into terrifying creatures worthy of horror films.All of our fond recollections of cartoon and movie characters were basically ruined.
Wil creates these models with ZBrush, a popular 3D modelling programme, and Keyshot, which captures the best-looking images of the object. He gives the characters a more “realistic” appearance, but he actually turns them into nightmare fodder. We wouldn’t want to run across one of these in a dark alleyway, or anywhere else.He stated: “I used to be really like 3D animation when I was younger, and when I discovered digital sculpture in high school, I wanted to pursue it as a career. The engagement I receive online, as well as seeing amazing character concepts from other artists, is always motivating.”
Wil agreed to an interview and told us what motivates him to make 3D art: “It’s always motivating to see other artists’ interesting character designs. On rare occasions, I’ll have my own ideas that I believe might be fun to express in 3D, but they’re few and far between.” Wil also revealed which of his models are his favourites out of all the ones he’s created:”Shrek and Finn the Human are two of my favourite characters. Their bizarre style, I believe, adds to their appeal.”
“I use a computer and a mouse to create all of my artwork. To put it another way, I sculpt with digital clay. When I first started doing 3D graphics, I utilised Sculptris, which is a free programme. After a few years, I moved on to ZBrush, which is the industry-standard sculpting software from the same company, Pixologic “When asked how he got started and what programmes he loves to use, Wil responded
