I ended up modifying the pose quite a bit. The Photo of SF is from a stock photo library. Coloring and paint FX were done in Photoshop. I till need to add detail to some of the borders and etc -- but this is pretty close to finished.

I won't post any more if they are seen as cluttering up the site. It was fun asking people to pose like a zombie to get the reference material I needed.

It's influenced by a style of illustration that was very common when I was a kid. Sun, 18 Nov 2012 13:07:23 -0500
