zombie test

I'm testing a new style/technique I want to use for the next 50 zombies ... and while it's not perfect yet, I think I'm off to a decent start. I know in my head what I want it to look like, its just a matter of reaching in and bringing it out. The zombie above was once Paige.
Have you bought my ebook yet?

my basic set

here's my tools of the trade ...
Here's how it breaks down:
1. My painters palette ... an old kids water colour set that was totally used up. I use it to mix my colors and just store the water colour paint.
2. My water - its an old, but once sterile, sample container. The screw on lid helps to prevent spillage when I lug my whole kit around.
3. water colour paint - some are decades old but I use what I got.
4. white acrylic for fixing or covering mistakes, and for highlights on the glistening blood
5. masonite board to tape the paper down prior to painting (zombie #48 shown)
6. water colour pencils - I use these from time to time and they're fun to play with
7. painters tape to tape the paper down - doesn't tear the paper and helps make a nice white border for the picture
8. black pen - from the dollar store - I burn through these fast so 2 for a buck is where its at
9. red pen - again from the dollar store - I use these for the under lying structure drawing and then just plow over it with color and blacks. I also like to use it to fill in some of the bloody areas
10. brushes - I have a certain size brush that I love to use, and while I know I should use other sizes, I often forget :) (dollar store brushes again folks)
11. +Tim Clary WIP - but the paper is probably the most expensive thing here ... the brand name escapes me at the moment, but its 300lb cold pressed water colour paper.

Those are my main tools of the trade. One day I'll be able to afford the massive canvases and tubes of oil paints like so many of the other amazing G+nius artists on here do. Until then, dollar store here I come!

these aren't your typical momma's boys

A couple of boys were commissioned by their mom ... she wants to show them what she'll do to them if they don't do as they're told.
Is your mom like that?

easter collage

Not really an easter image, unless you think that easter was the beginning of the zombie apocalypse and Jesus was the original zombie ... then this could be a tribute to everything that came after that day ...
you decide :)

monday magic

Someone went and bought 2 of my shirts from my spreadshirt store, and sent them to me and my wife as gifts. How frigging cool is that? If you want a shirt with some of my art on it, check out the north american spreadshirt store, or my other one, located in the UK.

It looks awesome, feels great, and has held up perfectly to its very first washing.

this is the real me ...sorta

my wifes shirt ... she won't model it though :(
