ZOMBIES!?!? What WE need is a hero!

The DEAD walk the earth!

NO living soul is safe!

Can ANYONE save us from the ZOMBIE hoards?

Alright… so, I’m thinking this is a good time to stop and clear something up…

I DO NOT JUST DRAW ZOMBIES & other creatures of the night!

Yes, I know… if all you have to go on are the pics I’ve posted to this blog so far… well, I can see how you might get the wrong impression.

But the truth is, these pictures that I chose for starting off my blog, just happen to be based on a theme… which just happens to be a hypothetical Zombie Movie.

The fact that Zombies are the subject is really just a coincidence… I mean – I draw all kinds of stuff… seriously. Don’t believe me..?

Well then, just look at the picture in this post!

That’s not a Zombie – now is it?!  No… no it is not.

OK, granted… so this IS another sketch from my “Zombie Movie Concept Art” series… BUT… there are NO MONSTERS in sight!  Not a one!

So there you go then… proof-positive that I’m a pretty awesome guy, and you think hanging out with me would be pretty cool… and not creepy… or disturbing… and stuff.

So this sketch is another quick character study.

I had decided that the hero of the story should be a young girl, and that she should have a slight melancholy mystery about her (faint emotional scars from a past she doesn’t talk about, maybe?) and the subtle suggestion of a deep strength–possibly a dormant fury–not to be taken lightly.

This one has a destiny, oh yes… and it’s bad news for the Zombies.  Ooh… dramatic… right?  Shades of ALICE…? Perhaps…

Though I honestly didn’t realize that until I saw RE:E for the 1st time last week.

Now, it probably shouldn’t surprise anyone to hear that this drawing began with the eyes.  In fact, the eyes are the only part of this drawing that I spent any real amount of time on… looking to convey that mystery-quiet-danger-girl thing.

Craig saw this picture and started calling her “Blue”… which seemed fair enough.
