Well, since the Zombie Run I created the below artwork for is almost upon us I thought I would go ahead and make a post about them in the blog. I picked up this project back in the Summer and there were a lot of kinks in it along the way up to finish in October, but none of it was for naught! I learned a whole lot about the way I draw and make art in general. I learned that I was able to push my cartoon style more toward the realistic spectrum and to break out of norms I thought I was force to stick to. But, mostly, I had a lot of fun working on this stuff. I was nice, while in the middle of crazy move time, to work on something in the season that came out as well as it did.
I drew the very rough pencils in Sketchbook Mobile on my Kindle Fire with a Wacom stylus then made finished drawing and inks in Adobe Illustrator CS4 with a Wacom pen and tablet. The coloring was also done in Adobe Illustrator CS4 with some placed images for texture.
So, here’s to zombies and Halloween!
