Featured Creature: Reaching Zombie Guy

Here we have the last of the fill-in zombies to round out the HZO.  This will probably be my last zombie drawing for a little while.  I'm going to stick to non-zombie creatures for a bit until my self-inflicted PTSD wears off.  I am also in the process of rethinking on how I plan to present the Featured Creatures and what my goals are with these pieces.

I'm going to include the link here for the site that caused my dramatic change of heart.  I feel like I need to share this link because of the intensity of its images and its effect upon me.  PLEASE BE WARNED: if you choose to hit the link below that this is harsh material.  If you have the stomach for it, the site that broke me is called Charon Boat.

Thanks for bearing with me and I hope you enjoyed the HZO.  I'll post a toned version of this piece soon.

UPDATE 112512:

Here is the toned version for this piece.  This has been a long haul to get the fill ins for the HZO all completed.  The end of October and the whole month of November haven't taken any prisoners.  One of my housemates had surgery to have a tumor removed, my other housemate has been sick, my truck is having some kind of catastrophic failure at the moment, and I've been battling the flu for almost 3 weeks.  It turned nasty this weekend, pneumonia like, so I may be headed to the hospital soon.  You'd think by now I'd learn to respect the evil power of November.  It always kicks my butt.  Enough bemoaning my fate, eh.  Hey everybody - ZOMBIES!

From the Sketchbook Archives: Halloween Poster Pieces




Here are some unused sketches and color elements for a Halloween poster from several years ago.  Much of the imagery here is inspired by early twentieth century Halloween paraphernalia.

Featured Creature: Long Haired Female Zombie

I didn't notice when I was drawing but someone I showed this to noticed that she looked a good bit like Laura Croft. An unintentional likeness as I've never played much Tomb Raider.  I'll get a tone version of this up soon.

Featured Creature: Dead Wolf

Here we have an undead wolf.  I forget exactly what inspired this piece.  I think I'd read something or other about the legend of an otherworldly black dog.  I'll update this piece with a toned version at some point later.
