coming soon to select theatres most likely not near you XD

lol but for real, this looks fucking amazing, lighting and shading look fantastic and i would love it if this movie was for real XD unless it's PG-13. THIS LEVEL OF QUALITY NEEDS THE HARD 'R' !

(on a side note, you might wanna fix the title a bit, it has "slaher" instead of "slasher" X'D)

Haha thanks man!! I just saw the typo. Good eye!
And yeah I wish I can make a corny slasher movie one day.

The whole thing is classic horror movie stuff. The expression, the framing, the aesthetic, pose, her makeup, it's all such a slasher scene. I love how exaggerated her boobs are as well. The killer's pose is also great, everything about this is a pure slasher tribute, so much detail, and it all works towards making it both an homage and a parody. Even the setting seems to be some generic house, and the girl is in the kitchen. I like how the knife even has a silly reflection of her. Keep this up, it's fantastic!

I think it looks really neat, I love it!

HugoVRB responds:

Thanks OCtarine!! Glad you like it!

There is not a single thing to hate about this piece,I love everything.

HugoVRB responds:

Thank you Spider!! Im glad you like it!

What really made me want to review this and give it a 5 stars (apart from the fact that it's really good) : the reflection on the knife :)
Just a weird point : how come so much light arrives on the girl without diffracting in the opposite way ? (don't feel obligated to answer this, it works just fine like this, but as a physics teacher, it made me raise an eyebrow... call it occupational hazard :) )

HugoVRB responds:

Great point! I love lighting, it is my favorite subject ever, I can talk about the quantum mechanics of light ALL DAY.

The thing I love about painting cartoony style, is that I can emphasize my focal points with over the top lighting, defying physics to tell a story!
As this is an underlighting with a few bounce lights around the character, I cheated the lights dynamic range on the knife to make it stand out a bit more, due to the reflectiveness I decided to cheat the angle of incidence to make a dramatic reflection even if it doesn't really match how the light bounces in the scene.
You are absolutely right that the light shoul've bounced a lot more on the scene, but the fantastic thing about making up my worlds is that I can make up phyisics!

Sorry if my english is not that good!

I admire teachers a lot, specially science ones. Keep making the world a smarter place!
