BFS Trilogy: Things to do in Denton when you're Undead

Hello. It's here.

Part three of my Bowling For Soup art-trilogy-thing.
You can see part one here, and part two here.
This is what they've been building towards.

Remember last year when I did the picture of Resident Elvis, and I said it was a test-run for a bigger project? This was it. It's been laying dormant in my brain for a couple of years now, and was finally resuscitated by ZomBeadle.

So, obviously you get the vibe I'm going for this time around, less GTA, more TWD. Originally, Jaret was going to be a priest holding a bible in one hand and a gun in the other, but I soon realised that a figure dressed in black wasn't going to stand out against the desaturated zombies. Thus Mr. Reddick became a cop.

I'm very happy with how these have turned out, for now anyway. In a couple of years I'll probably look at them and roll my eyes at the techniques I've used, but if future-me has proved anything, it's that he's an idiot. He can't appreciate the moment. That said, past-me is also an idiot who spends too much time appreciating the moment. Only *I* am great.

What's that? My working-out? This is the digital-age, we don't have... oh.

Even in 2012, we're still using "pens". I know, crazy.

Bowling for Soup: Things To Do In Denton When You're Undead, colour-layers.
This time round, each figure starts as a line-drawing, capturing the key details, and then each area has a base-colour and one highlight and lowlight. It leads to some sharp gradations of colour, but looks much cleaner.

As before, they've been hand-vectored in CorelDraw.




Yes, I am good to you, I know.

  1. I borrowed one of your graphics to tweak and use as an album cover for my collection of BFS bonus tracks and b-sides. Since this was just for my own personal use I didn't put a pic on my blog (Where I could link to your goodness here)
