long live the zombie by jakface long live the zombie by jakface
Sooo my entry didn't make it into the Darkstalkers Artbook, so I'm posting it here for you guys to enjoy. :3

Lord Raptor is awesome, nuff said.
Morrigan on keyboards and Ankaris on the drums (with leetle steecks!)

I love the lineart of this the most. Tried to make the lighting all dynamic.

******************
around 80 hours (most of that being lineart, rofl)
Photoshop 7
Tablet

Haha! Raptor's hand came off! I bet that's why Morrigan looks creeped out! I don't even know how Anakaris can play drums being huge!

.... Wonder how Anakaris can be a drummer beiing so blinking huge D:
Nevertheless, Raptor rocks. Morrigan rocks. Anakaris rocks. Darkstalkers rocks. And you rock for drawing and post something so Kool!
Besides... He looks alot like Eddy, y'know the Zombie Mascot from Iron Maiden

80 hours with tablet? I'm just beginning to use it and it's a pain in the ass. So 80 hours... phew. It's a lot of work. But the result is awesome!

It took me awhile to get used to it. I've been using tablets since I was in grade 8. But you'll get the hang of it. :D

Thanks, friend!

You drew this all with a tablet?! Wow, this is great! Sad that it didn't make it in the artbook, but it sure did win as one of my favorites.

I have to admit that I'm not really one for fanart, but this is EASILY one of my favourite pieces of fanart drawn by someone.

I love how amazing the lighting is, and especially the background AND...foreground? You know, the crowd XD I think thats easily my favourite part. I think its so well done, and I know if I was do a scene like that I probably wouldn't even have thought to blur what was close to the 'camera'. Morgan's facial expression is hilarious, and I love how you drew each character and had every detail down =) Nice work! Sorry to hear it didn't make it in D: This is kick ass!

Dude, the amount of time and effort you put into this piece (AND YOU GOT IT ON THE DEADLINE HOMGWTF) just makes this piece even more admirable.
The colours, ink, poses....there's nothing boring about this at all. Pure eye candy.

Well, if I counted right, only 200 entries (more or less) crossed the line... 200 out of 2000+ :D

When the numbers are like this, I think it's quite regular seeing alot of high-profile works taken out from the win.

Nevertheless, you're pure ace.

Ciao!
