Obviously this drawn from photos (one rather famous one in particular).

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.

Figures were drawn from life and a few photos that I took myself Thank you iPhone :-) Sun, 25 Nov 2012 21:14:59 -0500 Zombie Poster WIP http://shadowness.com/Zod/zombie-poster-wip <a href="http://shadowness.com/Zod/zombie-poster-wip"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/281804/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />I'm not sure if "Work In Progress" images are interesting to people or not. 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.

The figure is based on one of the guys in that photo. the background is meant to look enough like the rockies without becoming too distracting. Sun, 18 Nov 2012 12:57:36 -0500
