I decided to start on a new personal project for Halloween. I’m going to do illustrations of each character from the indie horror game Five Nights at Freddy’s, but as humans. For those who are not familiar with the game, you play as a new security guard working the night shift at a pizza place called Freddy Fazzbear’s Pizza (something like Chuck E Cheese). The catch is that the animatronics (Bonnie the bunny, Chica the chicken, Foxy the fox, and Freddy the bear) all come to life at night and wander the place looking for you. How you play the game is pretty simple. All you can do is check the security cameras to see which of the animatronics has moved and where they are. You have to make sure they don’t get into the room you are in or they will “get” you, so you must close the doors in time. The only thing is, you only have a certain a mount of battery power for the doors, cameras and lights. If you run out of power or one of the characters get in, its game over for you! Its quite a unique and scary game.
Anyway, since I appreciate the game so much and it has that horror factor, I decided to do illustrations of each of the animatronic characters as sort of steampunk humans. The first that came to completion is Bonnie (above). I wanted to do them in order of appearance and he is the first to bother you in the game. Next up is Chica, the creepiest one in my opinion!
