Zombies, they're here by jen4eternity Zombies, they're here by jen4eternity
I have always been a huge fan of zombie movies and the 'what ifs' that come with them. The thought of the world ending with nearly every human being in existence either being turned into or devoured by flesh eating monsters is scary. Every day would literally be a fight for survival.

Copic markers and multiliners.

Edit:
Didn't win the contest but I'm extremely excited to have been chosen as one of the 25 semifinalists! Click the 'view winners' button above to see the awesome entries that oh so deservedly beat mine out for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places. :D

Wow, i'm loving the almost empty surroundings on this. Makes me want to visualize this scene from multiple views. [With all points being scary and intense of course.... especially if put into motion] The dullness of how the colors are used is just perfect for a zombie piece. To sum it up, I love this a lot! [Big zombie fan]

Great work!

ok llike... i really ... REALLY dont like zombies, they freak me out xDD but this concept... its great!! i love those colors, the sky really gives the creepy feeling, so does that abandoned house and the dried out like surroundings too! :) and how you did the woman in the background! its the perfect example of a living dead, how her bones are showing, the dead-ish skin and the face thas fallin apart :) but especially the wobbly look she has to her~ :) i assume the guy in the front was recently attacked by a zombie, but if not then id suppose you should have done him more ... dead, more skinny and more damaged skin in general, no scratches, but more like dead skin thats just about to fall apart you know? again, that goes only if that man was meant to be a zombie already~

Yes! You picked up on everything I was trying to do! :D
When doing the male zombie, I was thinking he would be a little over a week dead + some damage to the one side of his face. Thanks for the comment. I really enjoyed reading it! :)

oh and i think i should also mention some stuff u could do better cuz that helps you more than just telling what you did right i suppose haha xD
the grass could use more detail, though on the other hand that might just distract you from the main subject: the zombies. but i still think itd do good. also, i think the clothes should be more dirty all over. coz aside from being just torn apart, and a bit messy by the bleeding parts, its still pretty clean. after all those guys' arms dont just suddenly fall off and they dont just suddenly turn into zombies i imagine: their limbs musta been torn off, and they musta been terribly mistreated to still say it lightly so blood musta been splattered everywhere~ then again that might distract attention, but i really think that, considering the circumstances, theres really things missing! D: but you know i still really like it! ^^ im just trying to help you by giving some critique coz many ppl tell me i should, though some react really ... annoyed when they get critique even when they dont put that 'no critique desired' on their deviation ):
hope you wont take it the wrong way!! DD:

Thanks. I really don't mind at all. It's nice to see your work through someone else's eyes. :)

Your right, the grass in the foreground could use a little more detail and the clothes should be a lot dirtier. (Although, I wouldn't change a thing about the girl zombie. I freaking LOVE how she turned out! heehee) I'll keep those things in mind for any future zombie pics.

I appreciate the help. thnx

Ha! You're funny sis! You're right about Chris, he would totally fit in there. Wouldn't change a thing about him. But you're already in it! You see that girl in the back? I'm surprised you didn't recognize yourself, it looks just like you! Hehehe

But I could make you look just like her with just a little make-up! Given that I get to be a little rougher than usual with the make-up brushes and chemicals used. :D:D:D

its interesting to see a piece done with copic markers and multiliners these days. i like the desolation, the sadness and specially the creepyness of the zombies. I would´ve prefered to see more of them in the background, like in those zombie movie posters. But i think the main bet in here speaks for desolation. well, thats what i feel from your piece.

Congratulations for being a part of the semi-finalists. Good luck to you too!

Thanks for that small critique. I was actually thinking the same thing to some extent. I'll try for a zombie horde in one of my next pieces. For some reason, whenever I'd try to add more than the two in this piece, it just threw off the vibe I wanted. It does feel like its missing something though.

Thanx again!
