Fear the Walking Dead: Zombies [Part 2]

ftwd_02_paint_thumbMore not-zombies, as promised, from Season One of Fear the Walking Dead.

Dredging these up has reminded me how labor-intensive they were. For this series and Empire I was doing all watercolor work. Which I absolutely love, don’t get me wrong. But it is intensive. Something made with markers (especially something like Judy) can travel easy, it’s not messy, etc. But with paint you need a fairly fixed workspace, you need water, you need a bigger variety of tools, etc.

With these I at least did blackline inks. I intended to do “color your own” plates for the series, but it literally doubles the work. And after feeling the burn from the Star Wars dolls, I decided I’m much too lazy for that. But I already made the uncolored plates for the “infected”, so I might share them Halloween day.

The guy on the right is my favorite. He’s also the goriest, so you’ve now seen the worst. Tomorrow’s zombies infected are much tamer, I promise.

Today: meet Artie and Peter.

    Looking good! As always, your poses are really dynamic feeling. Not quite “right” looking for a human, if you know what I mean.

    I also hope to see your Empire paper dolls. I had been looking forward to them then you abandoned us all and it was so hard and I cried and cried and cried.

    (Okay, so, totally not that last part, but the looking forward to it bit is true.)

    • thank you!

      i’m really sorry for dripping the Empire stuff. i really want to pick it up again–Cookie is too much fun! i have a couple of plates finished that i intend to post. maybe i will try to catch up in some small fashion. i’m struggling between making pop culture dolls that i’m interested in/excited about, and maybe starting something new of my own. but i definitely don’t want the Empire work i did to go to waste!

        Trying to sort out how not to waste work you have done while also not feeling like, “but I didn’t finish this thing how I wanted too” is a challenge for me, too.

        • gotta know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, know when to walk away, know when to run ~ hahaha. : D
