three more zombies

I printed a diagram of facial muscles from the internet. It's a great refference to use when a lot flesh is torn off a zombie's face.

smoking zombie

If a person engaged in an activity often enough and it was enough of a habit that they pretty much did it unconsciously, I wonder if they would continue to do it after their higher brain functions ceased?

a couple of freaks...

Here's a couple of circus freaks. It was nice to work with a slightly different palette.

The Walking Dead

I just finished reading all of Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard's "The Walking Dead". The comics go through issue 43 but I bought all seven of the trade paperbacks that go through issue #42. It was well worth it. This is a great adventure series with wonderful character development and a gripping story line. The black and white art is just fantastic. I think it's probably more effective in setting the mood of the story than it would be if it were in full color.

lizard/human hybrid

This is my friend and former student Brandon. He had some interesting ideas. This was a fun one to do.

two girl zombies

These are fun to do. I was initially trying to use the grey tone of the boards more. Lately I've just been utilizing it as a hair color. I'd like to use it more effectively as a shadow tone for the faces though.

she devil

I am really enjoying breaking out and doing things other than vampires and zombies. I had fun drawing the flames on this one too.

three more zombies

Here are three more lovely zombie girls. They're getting more and more creative with their suggestions.
If you haven't already done so, you should check out The Zombie Survival Guide. It's practical and witty, essential reading if you plan on surviving a zombie outbreak.

One with a damaged jaw and the other was mauled by a bear.

three freaks and a demon

My clients are getting creative. Not every one fits into the zombie or vampire molds.

Birthday Party

My son had his fifteenth birthday this week. To celebrate, he had a bunch of his friends spend the night. Even though they are pretty loud, they're a nice group of boys. I gave these zombie portraits out as party favors.

I did Jordan's at a bit of an angle. It's less confrontational.

Jeff was pretty easy going about his, so I just did some general damage

Jaden wanted his lower jaw to be missing.

I like this one of Justin. It's sort of subtle and I think I really captured his essence.

I added the flies around Joey as an afterthought. I sort of like them.

Kevin wanted his brains to be showing. We all agreed that he's a zombie on the edge since destroying the brain is the only sure way to kill a zombie.

Richard wanted to be a werewolf. I guess there's one in every crowd.

When I draw vampires I need to get the likeness a bit more accurate since their features are more or less intact. I have a tendency to make my subjects look a bit older than they are but this works out well when rendering the undead.
