Drawergeeks: Zombies- lost girl. The second submission for this topic. I feel much better about this submission. It is my second entirely digital piece from concept sketch to completion. With a topic like this, I am sure that the entries will be numerous and breathtaking in concept and execution as always. It is so exciting to see how everybody provides such a different solution. That is where the fun is, seeing how everybody views a problem and how their minds solve it creatively. Can't wait to see.
Detail is below.

Drawergeeks: topic... zombies. zombies? In this heat? When I was a kid, the Night of the Living Dead image of the school girl with the dark eye really creeped me out big time. This is my homage to that image. I went back and looked it up... it doesn't have quite the same degree of chill as it did back then, because I can see the make-up now. But as a kid... it was as if she was waiting outside my window or just outside in the woods. No mercy, no stopping. This wasn't some gothic romantic, or punk rock vampire who you could try to reason, bargain with, or try to bluff. It's like trying to bluff a disease. It will keep coming until it can't. It doesn't feel, doesn't care, doesn't know. It just feeds.
gypsy girl model from the drawing club out of pasadena. I go there sometimes when I just want to mindlessly render. It's fun. The other nice place to go for people sketching late at night is CSPAN... they sit pretty still... and they are almost lifelike.
jacob Marley: just got back from a week long trip to Arkansas. Very pretty. Met a lot of nice people, did a lot of training, ate way too much, learned a lot, and did sketching. What is posted here is either stuff that got missed the last time I did a sketchbook dump (like the Marley stuff) or new items done during the week. -db
