Zombie Superman by JamesDenton Zombie Superman by JamesDenton
This is my DC Zombie submitted for the tournament at :iconbattle-artist:

Total time, 6 hours, from sketch to color.

EDIT: I cleaned up the blending on him and corrected a couple of lighting issues I didn't love. I think overall it's much more solid with just a little more work. Enjoy!

Thanks! Check the link for a better version. Did some cleanup on lighting and made the costume a bit more realistic.

Hey let me know when I can update it. I did some blending to make it even tighter. I'll email you in the meantime, so you can see what I mean. I didn't wanna update it so she felt I had an advantage because I put another hour in after the time limit was up.

Thanks. I'm actually doing more work on him, but I'm gonna hold up on submitting the edit (mostly blending and softening some shadows here and there to get him looking a bit more realistic.) til after the judges have spoken.

It sure is. :)

I had to go up against Wonder Woman from Blackest Night. Even though "DC Zombies" was the actual basis of the contest, I guess cuz Blackest Night got mentioned, some folks directly built their characters from that. The one weird thing to me (Not my competition's fault. It's how she was in the comic.) is that Wonder Woman, even under the influence of the black rings, is still hot. Everyone else is emaciated and mangled up, but she's still perfect. Just a different outfit. Weird.

Hey thanks! Unfortunately, other obligations kept me from spending as much time on at as I would've liked. I really dug the idea of having some ribs and guts showing, but alas, no time. I'll probably touch it up some other day. All told, from doing the line art to painting it took about 5 hours.
