Tossed out with the 'trash' (FNAF2 Mangle SFM)

I swear that totally opened Source Filmmaker 10 hours ago with the intention of making a really happy Mangle picture.  But then I just happened to see something on youtube that gave me some classic Mangle feels, and my mood changed.  

The picture was just going to be sad Mangle on the floor with a single volumetric overhead light behind it.  It was supposed to take 1 hour, like a speedart, since I wasn't intending to make it originally.  I started the picture in the Five Nights at Freddy's 2 SFM map, but I wasn't really feeling it.  I was scenebuilding in it instead, trying to make it a little more appropriate to the mood.  But I thought to try a different map.... and as I was doing that, SFM crashed.  Twice.  I lost 5 hours of work and was ready to just go to bed lol.

But then I tried again, this time with a more appropriate map.  It was still just going to be Mangle on the floor, with the map.  No need for scenebuilding this time.  But then I had a motivation to put in the 4 FNAF2 withered animatronics in the scene, and give the picture so much more meaning.

All 5 of the character models are from different authors/sources.  I picked ones that I thought looked best, and worked to pose/resize/reposition them specifically to look best in the cages.  Mangle was hardest to pose ... because it's just so random.  All models have been retextured/colored for a beat up, dirty effect.  

Lots of crazy special lighting in this one to get all of the shadows and make for a good dirty/rundown effect on the walls.  Only one very small volumetric at the top of the scene..... and of course, my dust/smoke particles floating along the floor :)  Camera was a challenge.  This is the closest camera I've ever placed for a picture, lol.  And also my darkest render.

I love Mangle as a character so much.  It embodies so many situations and emotions, that it's so easy to use in a picture.  I'll just have to do my happy picture some other time lol.  But after doing the FNAF3 Springtrap picture, it was time to go back even more and revisit FNAF2.

The idea is that broken old Mangle has been "trashed" with the other old deactivated withered original animatronics in a rotting pizzeria.  Unfortunately for Mangle, it's somehow still "alive" and doomed to wait for who knows how long to see life again.  Not even it's second head is functioning anymore for company.


Old related pics, I hope I've improved lol:

Why throw her in the trash?

I see this image all over the internet, in Google, Pinterest (likely as reposts), and Youtube (as Thumbnails). Seems I found the original.

gold94chica's avatar

Yes! You have found the original! These pictures have been everywhere by now!

This is so touching because of its colors and the expression it shows how lonely the anamatronics are and also just how lonely it must be for the children without there parents.

I agree with you when u mentioned mangle been full of emotion and you have shown This by the tones and lack of bright colors it goes down well setting the atmosphere.

You reach out to people viewing your art, thats what makes a great artist .
looking deeply at the background you have taken the time to illustrate other fnaf characters and it tells a horrific story that you used without words.

The thing I like about this piece of art is the detail to the cage bars that light breaks up the dark room with a sense of decay and rust, the shadows are in itself creepy and it actually makes me want to cry.

you make fantastic art and you are so inspiring to follow as a artist keep up the forever hard work

ahhhhhh it's always wonderful to hear from someone who can really appreciate the work I put into this, as art!  It's good that you, the viewer, can get the emotions out of this and relate to it, and it inspires your imagination to explore more of the story surrounding the picture.  I can only hope to make things like this more :)

Thanks kindly for all your hard work

Thanks again, I try my best to portray real emotions, to which anyone can relate... even in a FNAF art :)

Well it asked me to make a review so here I am. Very good all in all (as said earlier). The shading, added "trash" on the models and overall use of SFM was amazing. But the concept of "Out with the old, in with the new" is a bit... old by now. Still, throwing Mangle in there was a new idea. "These abandoned bots, left here to rust. Staying still, collecting dust." As for the impact, Mangle is one of my favourite characters. (So is Withered Bonnie, but he's not the point of the art.) So the impact was very... well, impacting. Good job, I look forward to future work from you.
gold94chica's avatar
Ah yes, Withered Bonnie is one of my favorites too... maybe even my favorite from FNAF2!  And yeah the concept is old by now, but of course, so is this picture.  Very old. lol.  I'm glad you liked it, thanks :)

Oh my goodness. Oh my Damn.
Holy Mary Mother of Markiplier's Pink Mangles. How did you do this amazing work of art?! Holy Barnacles this is the best FNaF artwork I've seen in FNaF's 2 year life! Please teach me your ways master Gold94Chica! If there's one thing that needs work it's nothing! Because this is the greatest of the greatest. The best of the best. The pepperoni on the pizza. The eyeless eyes on the puppet. The mangledness of Mangle. The Spoopiness of Nightmare. The Chocolate of the Chocolate. 100/20 mate, 100/20. Howdo I end this with 7 words?

Damn, This is by far the saddest thing I have ever seen today. I mean Jesus. The texture is amazing. Absolutely beautiful artwork we have here. This makes me feel bad for killer robots that are possessed by dead children that want to stuff you into a metal costume. Sure it doesn't really support the game's lore as much as people want it to. But that doesn't matter, The vision was perfect and it really impacted me like a body blow from Mike Tyson. Never in my life would I ever though I would feel bad for the scary Mangle.

Thank you for accepting that it's possible to actually have feelings for the things that try to kill you.  I've always seen two sides of every coin, and tried to explore the unseen side to things.  It helps to make something more unique, anyway.  And if I can make someone feel something new or unexpected, then I'm glad I posted it :)

...... I don't know what to say about this image. The feels are too much to bare.
The atmosphere of the area. The expression on Mangle's face. The wonder in her eyes. The cages. And the Withered Animatronics.
The look in Mangle's eyes gives us two of the ultimate questions; 'Why' and 'What went wrong?' And no-one has a good answer, or the answer they want to hear.
My first impression of this image was to assure Mangle and the Withered Animatronics that the fault wasn't theirs. And I just want to take them home and fix them.

All in all, keep up the beautiful work, Goldy. We're loving these pieces of art. ^_^

ah hello again!  It's been a while since I got comments on this, but I guess you didn't see it months ago because of not watching me.  Keeps things more interesting that way ;)

But what I mean is, it's nice to get your comment now, all this time later, so I get to revisit the picture again myself for the feels.  And you're right about those things; I like when someone is able to see for themselves what I put into a picture.

I haven't really had any "art" in my for a while, but who knows if I'll be able to make more again sometime.  Thanks!

You're very welcome. I just call what I see (Which is more than others may claim). ^_^

I loved this artwork, it shows how Mangle (also known as Toy Foxy) was forgotten.
This is a lovely piece of art. It's my new wallpaper now :3

Also i loved how the retexture for Phantom Mangle worked out, amazing rendering results, also loved the metal lighting.

So back to the image itself, it's meaning, it's impact, it's sad that the animatronic was forgotten. The 3D models worked well along side the mangled animatronic, it shows that she is really damaged.

I want to tell you some tips...

1. Never Give Up, remember what you'll leave behind.
2. Never focus on the pain.
3. Keep being awesome.

Dude this is pretty freaking sweet! I love how detailed it looks!

The vision in this picture is just phenomenal. The mood is set very well here. The blueness in the light, the mysteriousness of the fog, and the dilapidated texture of the walls, floor, and cages really reflect what Mangle herself is going through. It all gives the scene an incredible impact with not only a dark appearance but also a dark, gloomy and depressed feeling as well which again is a great symbolic representation of Mangle's feelings.

The originality and the technique used to achieve it is another extraordinary thing about this piece. It is often foreseen in many FNAF fans' stories that Mangle is very depressed and even disturbed with her current state. This scene circles around that concept and even brings it to a whole new light. Instead of simply giving Mangle a saddened expression with a light to give emphasis, this scene incorporates the fact that she is also hurting physically as well as emotionally. Not only does the picture show Mangle to be emotionally disturbed, it also shows her to be breaking down because of her physical state to the point where she is likely going to shut down if she is not repaired soon. I also like how you incorporated the other animatronics into the scene as well. It gives a bit of foreshadowing in the sense that if the events shown here are left unchanged that Mangle will certainly end up in the same positions as the withered animatronics are.

All in all, I think you did a really great job with this scene. The symbolism as well as the details really tell the story and set the mood of the scene. Also, I think it's interesting that you were originally going to make a happy scene, but you made a sad scene when your mood changed. As artists, we tend to express our emotions through our creations whether through the form of a picture, story, or even a song from a musical instrument. Since our feelings are constantly changing, so are our ideas, thoughts, and even our arts themselves. So I like how even though your intentional goal was for a happy picture that as your mood evolved (also considering how SFM crashed on you twice, which I am very sorry to hear that <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/f/f…" width="15" height="15" alt=":(" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="380" title=":( (Sad)"/> ) that your art and goal for this picture evolved as well. Again, I think you did a very great job here, and I can't wait to see what other things you do. So have a good day, and keep up the good work! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

(that's my first critique, sorry if i fuck something up)

amazing art, the animatronics looks so realistic, the effects are just great! this reminds me of how i feel about myself and certain games, i feel like i'm useless, about the games, i feel bad for them because they take months, or even years to make something good with what they had, but it just ended forbidden, only some fans in the world, like 10/10000, and i just want to cry when i remember that one of my favorite games, bust a groove, is one of those games, it hurts even more when someone tells me that there's no more going back, i only have like 3% of hope left ;-;
