Steampunk Zombies from Steamfest. I was at Steamfest a few weeks ago where I took commissions to do people’s portraits. It’s something that I like to do and people get a kick out of watching me draw. Sometimes I even do drawing demonstration panels at the conventions. I was able to do one of those on the first day of Steamfest.
Steampunk conventions are fun because people dress up in costume and then I get to draw them as a Steampunk zombies. It’s awesome, but at the end of the con I had to tell anyone who wanted to be zombified that I would have to mail their picture to them as I was just out of time.
No problem right? Sure, if your eight year old daughter doesn’t swipe the notebook that has everyone’s mailing address in them. I have been frantically looking for this notebook since the con and I finally found it.
The end result is that I finally sent the last of my commisions out and now I can breath a sigh of relief that people aren’t going to kick my butt for not delivering their steampunk zombies. However, I liked how they turned out so I’m posting them up to show off a bit.
If you would like a zombie portrait of your own, you can just click the store or this link here and I’m happy to help.
In case you were wondering all of these zombie commissions are done on toned paper using Prismacolor pencils. I like using Prismacolor vs anything else as they blend better and the don’t really smudge with casual handling. Finally I do the really hot highlights with white sharpie markers. It’s all very archival and will probably outlast your great great grandchildren.
