A zombie dude walking a zombie dog. Need cnc on latest update please.
I really like this idea I had so I wanted to make a thread about it so it would get more attention than the doodle thread. I wanna push it to the best it can be!
Here is the first sketch I did of it.
Here's after some photo ref's and digital lines over the pencils.
Now, I'm no anatomist, but I'm trying to learn - so say anything that needs to be said and I'll see what I can do. Like the dog's ribs, those needs some work. I'm pleased with it over all though.

Also the Zombie's pose looks awkward, even for a zombie.
The first sketch also seems to have more character than the 2nd image. The zombie's skull is more interesting [and maybe even more accurate] and the dog's pose is a lot cuter [Just need to move his right rear foot forward].
@Aumni - intestine line does not need to be that thick no. will change in next version and make it look like intestines. Seems you guys like the first sketch better. Let's see what a redraw in ol' pho sho does for it.
I kinda like the original sketch more, though. The uniform line weight in the updated version strips it down a lot, and it loses some of the emphasis in the posture of the figure. The sketchier look might be more appropriate with a decomposing body, but that's just me. Keep up the good work!
@Line - Yeah hmmm uniform line weight is pretty boring... I'll work on that.
Honestly, I think you were a lot more effective with the original sketch.
I scanned the new sketch in a little light, but plan to go over it with some graphite like brushes in pho sho.
That's my quick try at a background, with a new light source being a torch...suspended by something.
The zombie's pose is something I came up with by drawing myself in the mirror so its probably not the best.
I like that the zombie's line of sight seems to go more in line with the dog's now though.
I want to use the concept again, but the linework just got all shot to hell and then I added colors and... yeah gonna have to redo this guy some time in the future.
You started to have some nice shading on the pants, if you carried that through the rest of the piece it'd look a lot better.
Keep it up man! Love the idea you have here.
My first suggestion is to start with a unified background color. If the overall color of the background isnt going to be really light, theres not much reason to leave any white back there. then I would try and thing harder about the really simple shapes that are making up your characters, and how your light would hit them. The best thing to do is keep it simple at first.
I'll take your advice and apply it as best I can.
