Final Zombie


Here is the final painting. I'll let it sit for a few days and then see if there are a few nicks I'll make on it, but for now it's done. This by far is the most complicated painting I've done to date and I learned more about painting as I always do. I used some phot ref on this for parts and that was something I hadn't done as of yet. I like parts and feel others are a bit too tight, but I really winged it here and feel pretty happy with the result, about 80%. I guess it's a silly idea, but for something that just jumped into my mind I think I pulled it off.

Bad Home Depot experience?;-)
Great painting, Mike!

Thanks TG, dawn of the Depot.

Aaron, no bad HD experience, it's just that places like that can make people zombies, they are big and people wander--malls too. They seem to suck the soul out. They would also be a great set for a zombie film, all those power tools....
