I like it! but you should make the cave/tunnel a bit darker, to make it look more creepy.

OOH nice, good looking Jason mask, perhaps a meat cleaver somewhere in there would look good?

Nice start there, the mask and mask's texture looks nicely done.
The wall and floor texture on the other hand look a bit low quality in comparison.  If I were you I'd try to get higher resolution images, as when they get close they're very pixelated.  Also, there's a big seam at the top of the tunnel which really stands out!  I'd try to get rid of that.
Nice start.

make some strange figures coming out of the wall - the kind that will make you look twice trying to understand what you just looked at. Nothing of a for sure image just object that might look like hand and arms.

Thanks all.
Hihosilver, well spotted dude the low quality wall textures is the main thing I'm not happy with.
I've been on all the regular texture sites and am struggling to find high enough quality textures that scale well.

3DJW, a meat clever eh?????? hmmmm that's not a bad idea that, I was thinking off maybe a spooky hand coming out of the wall holding a light. You've got me thinking now

I do agree about the textures too: the look to low res. A shame because the textures on the mask look awesome. cgtextures.com is a good site for some nice stone textures. And don;t forget the bumpmap/specmap. To give it a more dark feeling of a tunnel you could lower the ambient value of the material.

looking great, still a few things that could use some change but the overall is very nice and creepy. I like the lighting, but i still think the wall texture is not the best one you could choose, looks a bit low res. The river of blood is great, must have been a massacre.

I tried several hi and low res wall textures and found that one to be a happy medium, as a too high res detracted the focus from the blood floor plus I wanted the red glow from the background flare to be seen on each brick edge.
Thanks for the c & c

Thanks 3DJW I was hoping for a reflection on glass style effect with that creepy face.
Not sure were I got that face from originally  :P found it in one of my game making libraries which I haven't used for a few years. Thanks to who's face it is, you are one freaky dude.  :-*
Thanks for the feedback guys

Looks great, much better than the first render.

Good luck with the comp. :)
