El Zombo by Loopydave El Zombo by Loopydave
Pinpup for the upcoming graphic novel of the collected El Zombo comics by writer Kevin Munroe and über talented artist Dave Wilkins, :icondave-wilkins: who was kind enough to hire me to create this pinup piece for the book, but also to let me post it on dA (thanks man!) - go check out his work!

I'll post an update when the book comes out so you can all chase down a copy :thumbsup: :D

Pencil sketch, painted in photoshop. I usually just stick to really basic brushes in photoshop, but played with a cloud brush I found at [link] for the smoke in the background on this and was very happy with the results.

:D He does look a bit like him, though in this case its the character 'El Zombo', and undead Mexican Wrestling comic by the great Dave Wilkins!

Dave gave me a copy of this book and ever since I've loved it so much!
I was wondering who did this picture in it though, since it wasn't in Dave's style. It's amazing man! Good work! :D

Not a word often used to describe zombies - not even a zombified Einstein could be called that, but maybe el Zombo is the exception!;)

Eempresseevo, Loopydave, although the rotting flesh, she is missing. Otherwise, el caliente, magnifico creation you have here.....you can tell I've never even been to the Northern Hemisphere, let alone Mexico, can't you?
Seriously, quite, quite awesome; you've earned yourself a Fav, good sir/madam/[insert appropriate supernatural or extraterrestrial equivalent].

Thanks for the fave and the mexican! Will put it to good use at the next party I attend (with your blessing of course).
As for rotting flesh - I got him to pose before the rot set in as I cant stand the smell while I'm trying to paint ;)
