In this tutorial we will be developing a zombie illustration from start to finish. We will go over the cumulative process of developing a concept zombie illustration. We will explore some foundational ideas such as sculpting with value, and more specific Photoshop techniques like using photos as textures. We will learn how to turn around a strong image in a short amount of time, a useful skill in a commercial environment.
