Shawn of the Dead

I couldn't sleep last night,
so I decided to do a tribute piece of one of my favorite movies!
Shawn of the Dead may have one of the best screen plays ever
+ Simon Pegg and Nick Frost + Zombies = a big slice of fried gold.

Landscape painitng

I'm aware that landscapes and I have never gotten along very well, but change is a coming! I need to expand my skill set and stop being such a chuss about when it comes to things that don't agree with me. This was created in PS and the clouds are all painted ,with a bit of photo texture on the ground and with a hint of lens flare YAY LENS FLARES! I was hoping to put some weird furry desert animals being ridden by heavy clothed nomads in the foreground, but that will come later I suppose.

Resident Evil Comic Page

I created this for a friend's blog I'm part of called Sketch 2 Death. It's supposed to be a piece that is derived from a childhood memory, and the only thing I could think of is the absurd amount of video games that my older brother and I played. One of our favorites was Resident Evil, so I created this comic page of Jill Valentine running into a Crimson Head in one of the poorly lit hall ways of the infamous Raccoon City Mansion. Thankfully she is saved by none other than Mr. Zombie Killer himself Chris Redfield. This was great PS practice and I loved the subject. Back in the old games, the camera was always positioned behind a potted plant so you couldn't see the blood soaked zombies stumble towards you (and you didn't have enough bullets to kill them anyway) ('''(;,,,,,;)''')

My comp and first version, I ended up changing it because I felt I could create a more dynamic last panel.

The finished page, with a redone last panel.
