The Best of The Worst Characters: Awesome Villains

Everybody loves a proper evil overlord and there is a plenty to choose from in our gallery. So here are some of the best of the worst. Let's hope they never get together to take over the galaxy.

Trooper by Mattias Lind

Says Mattias Lind: "I wanted to create a trooper that would stick out from the crowd, so I tried different angles, but I liked the simplicity of just rendering straight on. I added the water drops. I have heard that they use water a lot when photographing cars to make them look more appealing, so I did that on the helmet, which rendered nicely." We agree! 

Harley by Ayoub Moulakhnif 

Ayoub based his render of the ultimate bad girl on a concept by Nicola Saviori and we love the cartoonish, stylized result!

The Dark Lord by Mattias Lind

This image made in Blender and Photoshop is a perfect tribute to turning limitations into strength: "I had previously tried to create a lot of different portraits, but I have always been limited as my computer can't handle rendering lots of hair," says Mattias Lind. "So I thought 'What character has no hair?' and I decided to make Voldemort." What a creative way to overcome obstacles!

Utapaun Lord Sith by Funkstar

This is the stuff of nightmares: a blind pau'an passed to the dark side. Sculpted and modeled with Blender. Composited with Gimp.

God Awakens by Alyssa Veysey

Alyssa's work, inspired by a photo, gives form to an ancient threat that could easily kick it alongside Cthulhu. 

Venom by Krzysztof Giełczyński

Venom is one of Krzysztof's favorite villains from the Spiderman universe. This image makes him feel even more evil than the movies.

Blackbeard by Clayton Sjoerdsma

Clayton took on the ultimate threat of the open seas, Captain Blackbeard himself, and brought him to life in Bledner, with post production done in Photoshop. Yarrr!

Pennywise Lives by Timofei Shcheglov

Timofei went all out with his absolutely terrifying Pennywise: "They thought they had killed it. They were wrong. And now IT's back! And angry. And very hungry."

Gollum by Mattias Lind

Mattias certainly has a thing for antiheroes. This piece achieves a characteristic that makes the best villains: depth. His Gollum shows all the vulnerability and inner struggle that defines everyone's love/hate relationship with this slimy guy. Rendered with Blender Internal, composed in Photoshop.

    Stop sitting at home and whining that there's no one to support you and stuff like that. There is already a mountain of dating sites out there. I agree, most of the sites are just not functional, let alone finding your love. But I know one awesome dating site where I found my first">russian brides. I advise you only russian brides. Here at one time a simple, but very nicely done graphically site where there is actually a selection of girls you would like to have.
