    ChoW # 219 :: HALLOWEEN SPECIAL :: Zombify yourself!




    ROUND #219 :: HALLOWEEN 2-WEEK SPECIAL: Zombify yourself!


    DESCRIPTION


    Halloween 2-week special: Zombify yourself!


    Halloween is coming up and that means a ChoW 2-week special this time! We would like to see you zombify yourselves in an awesome zombie portrait. What would you look like if the world was taken over by zombies? Who will become the Zombie king/queen of Halloween 2010?

    Zombify yourself!

    - By “zombie” we mean an undead being showing some form of decay :p
    - Setting can be anything, so it does not have to be the modern day zombie version.
    - Don’t forget the rule!
    - It’s a two week ChoW so plenty of time to make this painting gruesome

    Some inspiration:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zombie

    Good luck!

    hahahaha, the zombie-virus has taken over CHOW as well. Nice for the two weeks as well since I will be at The Iron Curtain next week.

    Not a fan of zombies - although really enjoyed doing a zombie bunny... but might have to have a go at this...

    I am being tainted by the new ImagineFX cover...all I keep seeing is a pin-up style zombie girl! Going to visit some haunted houses for new inspiration.

    AndreRuben: thats an interesting take on it. A zombie rat catcher?

    KarylGilbertson: Now that I would like to see.

    Heres my first WIP: Straight zombiefication for now. Maybe I will come up with a more interesting concept later (Weve got two weeks after all)

    Obstfelder no no, that's actually my pet, a ferret. But i guess i'll start over the whole drawing, i want to give it more dynamic and make it more expressive.

    Sure . Just no posh fancy clean vampires and undead like that.

    Ooooh, very interesting, SP ChoWs usually turn out great!

    I was actually thinking of doing a Zombie-SP for International Selfportrait Day on Nov 1st, since I don't have a lot of time the next few weeks... But for everyone else this should be a nice warm-up. Go, Go, Go!

    Unfortunately no... I think if I don't have the element of surprise my concept will be ruined I know that sounds ridiculous... but what the hey. I'll get some crits on the down low as I go.

    Besides, it probably won't stack up to yours anyway, don't think I haven't seen you killin' it in these threads.

    so ... ONLY zombies? or just undead things as long as they're not glittery fairy vampires?

    OK so my first go at a WIP is attached. Working top-downwards on the linework so the bottom half is barely done.

    Really enjoying this so far though, and looking forward to seeing some more art!

    Red face

    Newbie alert!

    When I told my hubby what you guys were doing for CHOW this week, he got so excited that I couldn't NOT participate. So here I am with a shiny new account and my very first WIP

    Not a super exciting pose, but I'm treating this as an exercise in proportion/anatomy (feeeeet s.o.s!!) and painting skills. Plus it'll be the first time I paint a wok and a rat. Wooohooooo!

    My idea is not really ressembling me in terms of looks, but metaphoricaly.

    It is a zombimancer which consumes thoughts with it's stomach, and shoots ideas from it's head

    (First wip.)

    As usual, i get past the construction phase, add in some lines and get stumped/frustrated by shading.

    Just a mini update. Once I started slapping colour on there, it kinda looked like Zombie-Me was underwater. So I'ma thinking I'll probably nix the wok and the rat (oh noes!) and have her "feeding the fishes".... literally.

    Never painted a zombie/gore before.... so just playing around at the moment.

    I see more submissions! Keep it up guys, having people post their WIPs keeps the ball rollin

    *EDIT* Oh just to be clear, the pic attached below is only a teeny part of the full picture. I hadn't done a lot to the rest of the painting so didn't feel the need to post the whole pic.
