31 Monsters in 31 Days: Day 15 - Zombies

ZOMBIES! Well if you have not caught your fair share of zombies in the last few years you have not paid much attention to pop culture because these guys are everywhere. The basic premise of zombies are that they reanimated corpses of usually the recently deceased with a hunger for human flesh. At some point it has become popular to say zombies want to eat your brains but they really just want to eat you completely . . . of course your brain may taste best. Zombies have several different versions traditionally they are slow and are easy to avoid by themselves unless you happen upon one by surprise. The problem with slow zombies comes in when there are more of them than their are of living humans in an area. More recently zombies have acquired "Rage" and are fast and capable of running and although still very instinctual they seem to have more intelligence than the traditional zombies. Before you think you've seen it all you might want to think about Flying Zombies . . . yes I said Flying Zombies and they are a whole new ball of wax when it comes to getting away from zombies.

In most zombie stories the key to destroying them is to remove the head or kill the brain and they will die.

I've seen hundreds of zombie movies and read many comics about them here are my starting suggestions:

Movies: Night of The Living Dead, Shaun of the Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Fido, 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later and Zombieland.

Comics: The Walking Dead, Flying Zombies

Books: The Zombie Survival Guide

TV: The Walking Dead

In my drawing I went with a zombie that looks like he's happy to see you . . . for dinner. I've drawn zombies before and usually I make them have huge teeth with this one I tried to keep him a little more human but still a bit silly.

The colors are Copic Markers.

As they say in Dawn Of The Dead "When There's No More Room In Hell The Dead Will Walk The Earth,"
