This one was really entertaining to work on. As usual, this undead creature came to life at work, sketched out with a ballpoint pen. I scanned him in, and was ready to post him as another sketch, when the creative impulse kicked in and decided it was time to give this poor zombie a digital facelift. I modified a lot of his facial features, and added a lot of the background. Also spent some time adding in some tones and shades to make him a little more realistic. Then added the sepia tones to make it look a bit more aged. That's one of my favorite things about art- you never know where it will take you. Sometimes it seems like these monsters really do have a mind of their own and decide where they want to go.
The watch this guy is wearing was inspired by a photo hanging at my desk at work. This is quite a fashionable zombie with his big old Fossil watch and oversized hoop ear ring.
