gah first self portrait too... pre zombified me... will add the gore in a moment
Anatomy..... it hates me. Hooray for blob feet!
And I'm going to draw your attention away from the scribble on the left that is supposed to be an anchor.....
There's some seriously awesome pictures showing up in this thread! Admiring the skills Rusty, your picture is freakin creepy- can't wait until you splash some colour on that thing
Right now I'd just be happy if I finish this by the deadline.
More zombification on its way!
Helltroll — I love the mood and the eyes; it's still early to say but I'm not sure where your light sources will be...
Rusty — Love your sketches, as always: very organic, full of life, and the anatomy is so strong; my only issue is with the left arm coming up the way it does. Naturally I realize a zombie will be contorted but this contortion takes away from the balance of the character. It looks like you had the arm down and back, perhaps in some kind of zombie roar. That feels better to me compositionally. Still, whatever you do I have no doubts it will be powerful and lovely. Love your stuff
matt kohr — clean lines! and wow... perspective, even!
Rose.Lagan — Blob feet are ok. Better to go from something broad to something detailed. I think yours is a zombie portrait I can get behind! (Are you wearing socks?) If I may I'd like to see more variance of values. I realize that as far as color goes you may be waiting to punch it up, or possibly want to leave it muted. I'm just curious...
Here's two WIPS...
I'll be adding more of "me" and some rotting flesh... just wanted to get something skeletal together first...

Just a small update. Not sure if i'm liking where it's going but suppose i'll keep on trucking and see how it turns out.
Awesome entries so far!
Rusty - I took a look at your sketchbook and you have some awesome stuff in there. It's gonna be hard to follow your lead.
Rose.Lagan - I really like the idea of yours being underwater. It's looking good so far and looking forward to seeing it progress.
Everyone else is looking great, sorry I don't have time to crit them all atm.
Been a long time since I've shown my now ugly head around this space, anywho here's a start for me, I know its a little late but we'll see if I get it done.
And somewhere along the line, she came down with a serious case of dead.
Started out today cause it's such a great topic but I only have time during weekends ;( see if I make the deadline this time!
I imagined a slightly more fresh corpse so more gore than decay
Did some lineart and threw in some colors to let you know where i'm aiming at. I'm not sure about the proportions, let me know what I can do to improve it.
wip so far:
