5 Days of Awesome: DAY 2 - Zombie

We got a really positive vibe on the first post of this 5 Day Challenge yesterday, and we want to thank you. Whether you got here from facebook, tumblr, deviantART, twitter or any other site, please stick around and join in on the fun. I think there was some confusion as to what we were doing, because some artists wanted to join in and contribute a piece. But that's for another time. Wink Wink...

Yesterday's votes decided that we should do a Zombie theme today, in case you were wondering what happened to the little Cyclopee here. For those that are new here, cyclopees are one-eyed birds I designed a couple of years ago. Back in June I illustrated a piece that this sketch is an homage to. See for yourself.

Comments, Retweets and sharing on facebook is encouraged. Spread the word, but make sure to mention us @salvatier or @romidion so we can keep track. At the end of this challenge I plan to give away some of these sketches to our helpful messengers.

P.S. Don't forget to check out Dayne's zombie post and vote on sketch challenge #3.

Brad Fisher said...

That's is awesome. I love this one so much. I like the original but this one tops it for me. I wouldn't mind seeing it as a print man. Awesome.

I like the original better. The color factor I think. Do love the Cyclopee.

Tanoshiboy said...

I would imagine most women liking the non-decomposing cyclopee more. :)

Janine Ripper said...

I like the new one, but I've always been drawn to the macabre...

A woman after my own heart. Thanks, Janine. :)

Well hello ^_^! I traveled back in time and saw the sketch, colored version and now the zombiefied version! Simply awesome!

I saw Dayne's post as well! Also very cool! Can't wait to see challenge 3! Good luck!

Rob Berman said...

Cyclopee is a new one to me. This one seems like it would fit in a horror movie as a character.

I am awed at how you can just produce these images on command. What a gift you have Dennis!

Can't help thinking of Potemkin who was nicknamed The Cyclope. Maybe he should have been called The Cyclopee?:)
