From the Drawing Board: Zombie Drawing Process

Most of my drawing is done digitally, but I’ve been having a lot of fun lately doing old fashion pen and pencil on paper, thanks to my monthly subscription to Sketchbox. For a reasonable price they send you a box full of cool art supplies at the beginning of every month. They aren’t paying me to say this, mind you, I just think it’s a really cool product.

Anyway, here is a look at the process that went into a zombie drawing I recently did. Image one is the pencilled image, Image two is inked, and for Image three I sought the comfort of the familiar and applied color digitally by way of Photoshop.

A Logical Breakfast

I have to think that if Star Trek had lasted longer than those original three seasons on NBC back in the 60’s, this sort of product endorsement would have been inevitable. And if such things had been able to finance that original five-year mission, who am I to argue? And if Kirk, Spock, and McCoy (the holy trinity of science fiction heroes) were to beam down to a planet whose civilization consisted of cartoon cereal mascots, yup, I would watch the living HELL out of that.
