Was going to stick to black & white to accommodate time constraints.... but you just can't draw a zombie without splashing some reds around, gore and gruesomeness a-go-go!
Now pick your favourite relative and/or friend, Zombie Boy has just eaten them : )

Just so ya know. I painted this in watercolour on A1 Fabriano paper. I created the blotted effect on the walls and ground with salt. It was taking too long to build up the darkness in watercolour, so when I was happy enough with it I photographed it in 4 sections, photo stitched and applied some filters. :)

Watched my fav' Hallowe'en movie tonight and decided to base this month's post on it. Couldn't choose which version I prefer so I'm putting them both up.

Here's my collective post for the theme "Birds Birds Birds". It features Black and White from Tekkonkinkreet, a favorite film of mine. I've wanted to draw these guys for a while now and I haven't drawn a city-scape in ages so I thought I'd try do the both here.
And as always I tried something new here too. I reversed my halftone dots, so instead of using the actual dots themselves I used the area around them. Just thought it would give me a more 'square-er' feel when sorting out the building silhouette.
I had a lot of fun with this one. I kept it B&W for obvious reasons. Since the theme was about birds I tried my best to keep them as much a character as Black and White are in this piece. I like the idea of the crow resting on blacks club and White playing with the only dove in the whole city.
White's imagination is a great element to play with. In the film about half the things he's interacting with aren't really there and some times he just floats in mid air. I thought I'd have him play with a dove that may or may not actually be there, that's up to you.
I'll blog again soon, laters!
