Cartoon Zombie Party
This digital image was done in September 2014 and illustrates a party being enjoyed by a number of cartoon zombies in a graveyard on Halloween. Originally the artwork was going to be drawn as 'vector' based drawn art with flat colours. In the end the whole thing was done in photoshop. The characters have a flattish, cartoony colouring to them but with some brushmarks. Unusually for me the background has not been painted but I have used photographs heavily treated for the trees, sky and grass. On top of the whole image 'grunge' effects have been placed to add some finishing sparkle.I wanted the 'horror' to be as funny as possible to a general audience. The zombies have cartoony poses, worms coming out of them and eyeballs popping out. One zombie has had his head drop off while rising from the grave.
