Here's my second finished Harajuku Zombie. Learning a lot more about what will work and what won't with this process.
This one was a blast. I knew that I wanted something big and yellow in the background, and a school bus popped into my head. I didn't want to render it out, though, so I thought it would be cool if there was a stucco type wall behind her that some kids went ape shit on with crayons. I asked my cousins to draw a bus for me. I knew that I wanted stick figure zombies, so I started working on them. They all turned out full of gesture and in the end looked like an adult trying to emulate how a kid draws stick figures.
I went over to a friends house the following week and there on his fridge was a drawing his nephew had done of a big zombie battle. His had a helicopter, and was labeled Zombei atack. It was so perfect I couldn't believe the coincidence. So, like any good artist I totally ripped him off.
Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Emma and Alex for the school bus, and Archer for the zombies and the blood, and the awesome spelling of Zombei atack.
I was concerned about attaching actual lace to the painting but I think it worked out well.
So, this painting has acrylic, oil, crayons, colored pencil, and various collage elements. I forgot how much fun coloring with crayons is.
Hope everyone enjoys,
