Goofin’ around again. The attempt has been to to go right in with brush and paints, no references and little planning. In other words, stepping out of my comfort zone. The process has been a lot of fun, and once again I can’t help but humor myself by playing around with these silly little characters.
Recently found this little guy crawling around on my sketchbook while I was sketching Well, this is my interpretation of him as he was too fast and because he was very small and my naked-eye is not quite as sharp as it used to be. Adam Ant here was sketched with a Micron pen and colored with Koi watercolors.
Just funin’ around with another zombie. This guy needs a name, any suggestions? He’s really a sweet dead guy, thinking just enough to wish everyone a happy day. (I know, zombies don’t think, it was really me doing the thinkin’ part. He just posed long enough for the drawing,
Yup, another zombie. While creating this creature I was consciously imagining his story. Crazy thing, but it got me feeling for this poor sad-sap. Not the usual googlie-eyed, silly zombie that I usually draw for my own amusement. Sad-Sap here is a newbie, only recently turned, confused and pained….
I imagined that his skin colors would gradually change from, well, fresh and alive to pale and peaked, lifeless. His eyes would start to dry and maybe shrivel-up. And eventually, only decay. I waited a few days to post, but he still does not amuse me. I guess he never will.
What’s better than a zombie creep?. . . . . a screaming zombie creep. I imagine his scream is, well, a sort of typical zombie scream. But his starts low and grumbly only to intensify at the ending into an almost electric shrill. Can ya hear it? He’s also got an awful twitch – characteristic of most zombies. Think he needs a name.
I should be drawing flowers and unicorns – okay some days I do. But these guys are usually what fill my sketchbooks. Sometimes I’m compelled to name them. Silly, I know but so much fun! These creeps were drawn with a Sharpie marker in a Crescent Rendr sketchbook.
