Zombie by dloliver Zombie by dloliver
Stricken with insomnia and boredom?
When in doubt raise the dead.
Ooh look, its Halloween.

Had a completely different idea in my head but managed to lose track of that one in the meandering back alleys of my mental midden heap.
In a befuddled state i resorted to old certainties...
In the end it took too long for what it was.
Started out well, then started to go askew and was a bit argumentative in the corrective process...
Will have to do better next time...

EDIT (What? Already? Good grief!) : The incessant fiddler hath fiddled. Modified the gory bits.
Now they have more of a tattered, shredded, ragged look, and less like a man who died face-down in a bowl of Heinz Spaghetti...
EDIT : While zombifying my mate [link] I realised that the physiognomy was a bit off in the proportions of the underlying skull on this guy. Tweaked!

EDIT : This pic has always bothered me! Never really know why but its like a scab I cant stop picking. Still not totally happy with it dammit, but for the sake of the exercise I've had another go at him...

EDIT : Right! That's it! I couldn't let it lie! But I think I've finally cracked it and I'm actually HAPPY with the result (at last). Better ears (always hated his lugs before but couldn't get to grips) and a subtle bit of backlighting. :) :zombie: I'm a happy Necromancer... (PS: apologies to all my watchers for this repetitive spammage...)

This is a great piece of work, very well done, but I'm not going to fave it because I only collect beautiful stuff, and this is gore.

These days he lives by himself because he can't be trusted around the family. His Son threw him out recently because he was stealing his grandchild's ADHD meds. He'll take anything to get high. It's really bad. The family has tried everything.We even tried putting him in an institution but he ended up signing himself out a day later. The admins said they couldn't old him.
