Hi, guys. I picked this topic because I thought it would be a fun way to exhibit whatever freaky/weird models you want to make. I just did some research on historical freak shows, and it’s a bit dark. So if that’s not your cup of tea, I hope you can still find something you like to make. And if you’re into the macabre bits of history, then more power to ya :sweat_smile:. Let’s get freaky! :japanese_ogre:


Yeah mostly disabilities and diseases :thinking: freaky/weird models sounds good though :rofl:


Hello Everyone! I opened up this challenging section for myself today and am committed to participating as often as possible.
As you can see it is my variation of a “Freak show”. It’s Freak human.

P.s You can watch my other blender works on my Instagram profile


Lovely character.


Really looks like its been molded with clay. Finger prints in there an everything. Fantastic :+1:


My WIP. Using the techniques learned in the character course.

Block out:

and rough sculpt:


This one, makes me smile!
And to be honest, I like the first one too!
As we can see it’s a person, an unhealthy body weight, shaped like a box of food …
The pose is good at the start already.



Don’t work too late …

Tried to give an SCP felling to my freak


It’s one of those Blender freaks! I’ve heard of them. Disgusting lot.

Unfortunately I may have to leave it here as I am just about out of time and energy for the week. It joins the ranks of the many projects I will finish another day.


Reminds me of the silent hill 3 enemy that was a massive fat thing. Cool stuff.


W,I.P may not have time to finish this one right now


Great idea though. I just saw the movie The Whale. Reminds me of that guy. You could have one of those metal walkers standing close by too


@Gordon That’s a good idea! Thank you. I’m looking to clutter up the room a bit but I don’t have time.

@JyounzuSan haha he does kind of look like that! Just a big gross blob.

@Willrun Nice! That’s a good character to use again later too.

I’m a bit late! And it took me waaayyy too long.


That’s part of the weekly problem / learning curve.
Plan the amount of time needed for the model.
