Lightbulb Zombie at the Gate

Pen on paper, color-tint in Adobe Photoshop ~ 65 minutes


Hit the lights. Somethings moving out there...


MAXIMILLIAN RILKE holds his breath. His brother GREGOR RILKE stands at his side, listening. They stare into the darkness beyond the doorway and hear night sounds. Maximilian is loosely gripping a shotgun by the base of its barrel, the stock resting on his hip.


It’s nothing. We should...


Hush. Listen again.

Maximilian shifts his feet in the snow, getting cold. Being a good brother, he closes his eyes and listens. His eyes pop open at a sharp sound from nearby, like paper being torn from a book. He licks his lips and slowly unhinges the shotgun barrell, exposing the chamber. Reaching into his coat pocket for shells, he feels his brother’s hand on his arm.


Too late for that.

Gregor nods into the darkness. Maximilian squints his eyes and sees a splash of light on the old Model-T next to the barn. It grows, and with it a look of dread darkens Maximilian’s face.

Hah! I found this in an older sketchpad today – this must be from around 2008. I really like the direction it was headed in, and don’t have any idea why I didn’t work on it a bit more. The idea was that the woman had escaped from a horde of elderly zombies, and still had their dentures clinging to her clothing. Also she has adult braces (click the image for a closer look), which sorta tied into the whole dentures thing… ~ 50 minutes

Daily Sketch – April 19th, 2011

I really like the face in the center, but the composition sort of fell apart with the character on the right. ~ 35 minutes

Daily Sketch – April 12th, 2011

I like this one – it has the more theatrical presentation and narrative-based feeling that I’m shooting for. ~ 60 minutes

Older mummy drawing – 2009?

Mummy man test. Awesome band name. I drew this in 2009 and it remains one of my favorites.
