Okay here is my final sketch for my new zombie cover for Palladium Books
Yesterday when I posted what I feel was a failed attempt a couple guys asked
"I like it! Hardly a fail probably just not exactly what the brief/client requested/required.
Thanks for posting.""Explain why you think its a failure. Right now it looks like a portrait and I don't see a problem?"
To which I responded
"It was actually all my decision, I simply didn't do enough exploration through thumbnails. What you are seeing here is just a small portion of the image. Matt what you are saying is exactly the problem, it looks like a zombie portrait which is not what was right for the narrative/scene. What I had in mind was a bit moodier, which I thing I achieved in the second sketch. Tell me if you agree."
