My childhood was a nightmare... I used to dream of bringing beings like this into existence for vengeful purposes. Now, at 68, I'm still wholly intrigued by this art. Not vengeful anymore... just captured by other world's possibilities. Not exactly the subject matter of most seniors I know..lol. I learned you can forgive someone without having to accept them in your life. I speak of an extremely abusive father. Your demons can't compare to what reality can hide. However, you can put a "face" to some of the emotions I've felt. These aren't drawings or paintings of my father... They are of my inner child.  Thank you for sharing your talent with us. Maria

This makes for a very nice concept art. I really like the design and how you handle your values. Those sharp transitions give impression of danger and that this undead is very likely to attack any moment.

Thanks for that. I agree that having a balnce between soft shading and shape planar lighting helps give a energy and tension, something I am still learning about, I feel like I am forever in school. Keep it up

Love the details and shading. The forms are so lithe and sinuous, it feels like this thing would be FAST.

Yeah it's some kind of special new zombie in the latest Pathfinder adventure, I am not sure what they do, but they look badass.

Yeah he is pretty creepy, I wanted him to feel more active and dangerous than a standard zombie. He is very proud of his tongue, eat your heart out Gene.
