Oooh scary! You could even push it further by having bones showing, or bits of flesh dangling from the figure. I like what you did with the first zombie's face.

Oh I love your style. Those B&W digital sketches are simply brilliant. Haven't seen many guys doing so rough and still readable drawings with only 2 color values. For example this http://rhinohidestudios.com/images/zp%20concept.jpg . Those eyes and teeth... Pure dynamic. Also the whole body anatomy looks quite good.
Btw, tell us if the game is getting up! Would like to test.
Keep on rocking.

Wow, those are some pretty vicious looking zombies you've got there.
I really like your black and white lineart, but your greyscale stuff just doens't have the same punch to it. Your figures also tend to look a bit cumbersome in some cases as well, for example the biker with the helmet, and the two female orthos.

spiffiness- Thats a good idea, I'll have to incorporate that somehow, thanks!
maknien- Thanks! I like that one alot too, it was a simple 5 min doodle in photoshop during lunch. Sometimes I can hit it and sometimes.. well...not so much.
MadCat- Hi Madcat! Yeah I like 'em. Don't worry though I'm not all about zombies. I'll upload some other stuff I'm doing that is very saccharine.
crazy3dman- Haha! Naw, not a master, just an apprentice. Thanks for the comments!
dfacto Thanks! I'm not sure I get your meaning about cumbersome. Do you mean stiff? If so then I have to agree, I need to loosen up and get my figures to feel more natural. Must practice!
Here is a W.I.P for C.O.W. #59-Creek Critter

Nice udate. Have you worked much with the source engine?
Acouple things about the "critter." I really think the birds sketched out on the posts are a good idea. I think they would make my eye move over the piece more. Something esle is I cant really tell where it body is coming from? Is it coming out of the ground or slithering like across the creek bed? Just something to think about.

Just reiterating what others have said already: Up the contrast by adding more darks and lights, and make it clear as to whether it's slithering along the bottom of the creek or coming out of the bottom. If it's slithering, change the angle of the belly somehow (O_o) and if it's the latter, maybe put in some displaced rocks/soil and more ripples. Also, there might be a bit of light coming from the right of the creature under the belly or bouncing off the water, so you might be able to squeeze in some lighter details in there as well.
