A little gift art for my friends, for me, for zombie-lovers... hell, for EVERYBODY really.
Happy (early) Halloween everybody. :) Hope you all have plans for (safe) fun.
Remember to always Double-Tap. ;)
I put a lot of thought into this one. First of all, I like to avoid the word "chibi" because these aren't adult characters with small bodies and giant heads, these are kid-versions of these characters.
I've been in a real good halloween mood, so I HAD to push out a quick zombie picture for friends and everyone. I hope you guys enjoy this one.
I wanted to make sure the makeshift weapons were decently accessible to these kids, and I didn't want anything too ridiculous. They're all really young, the edge of elementary school to the beginning of middle school. All the weapons are pretty easy to find and get. Kashra is a nerd, so while elementary schools don't have bunsen burners, he knew which high school to pick it up from, and how to use it.
I read a bit of my Zombie Survival Guide which actually helped me choose makeshift weapons.
Thanks to everybody in the stream who watched, hung out with us, participated, and contributed! You guys helped make drawing this fun and you guys all had awesome feedback and ideas that really helped this picture get to where it is. All of you guys are awesome, even those who are silent and not even registered, it's cool to have you guys even watch!
PS. Blood splatters are incredibly fun to do. I had to be careful not to overdo it. I really tried to keep a balance of cute and violence in this picture.
- Dressed up as a ghostbuster for Halloween, wielding an axe, goes in for a powerful blow, right into the zombie's gut, causing the zombie to gush blood, and have its eyeball pop out of its skull like a jack-in-the-box. This one is obviously one of the brave ones... he knows what needs to be done.
vason Dressed up as a sailor for Halloween, going the blunt route with a simple brick, aiming for the head. He knows Radjin's axe will only slow the zombie down, but it's the head that brain that needs to be destroyed. Again, this kid knows what he has to do.
Dressed up as a Sous-per Chef (Get it? The second "s" in "sous" is silent, and pronounced "sue"... and a "sous chef" is the second chef in command in the kitchen... Super Chef), wielding a frying pan and a cape for flare. He's completely fearless. That cape must be magical, cause he's jumping higher than he's ever jumped, and is about to smash the zombie's brains in like never before. This is his first taste of blood. What a brave pup.
[iconname]Daksir[/iconname] Dressed up as a chemist, the shep's got a bunsen-burner rigged up, with the tank on his back. Obviously a bit squeamish, this poor dog's having trouble getting warmed up. He also wasn't so knowledgeable about what makes a good makeshift weapon for a zombie apocalypse... fuel/ammo weapons obviously deplete. It's good thing this is a team building exercise, his friends are gonna have to help this one out, if they all wanna survive the zombies, and STILL have time to go trick or treating.
