Hey there Zombie Artwork Fans around the globe! Sometimes, in order to specifically zombify a head for the “Heads of the Living Dead” series, I need to image how the zombie became a zombie in the first place. While the majority of the illustrations for this series are spontaneous and not really planned much ahead of time, in the stages after the initial sketch, I flesh out the image and give it a little bit of a personality, sometimes with it’s background fitting prominently into what it turns out looking like. In the case of this image, I was thinking of those undersea horror/sci-fi films like “The Abyss”, “Deep Star 6” “Deep Rising”, “Virus”, and other schlocky similar flicks where people are out at sea or under it and are besieged by some malevolent alien or ancient evil. In the case of this image, I simple imagined that force warping the hapless humans into skin devouring zombies, giving them the slimy exterior and the sort of dead fish eye look. Again, inspiration is always there somewhere in the back of your mind, and it’s sometimes a real treat when you can access portions of it for use in your art! I hope that you’ve enjoyed today’s post Zombie Nation, and I look forward to seeing you all back again soon!
