Illustration for the band Combichrist
So this was a really fun project to do. This is a band from Atlanta Georgia that wanted some promotional art for an upcoming show out here in LA on Halloween. These guys are already pretty intense looking and then wanted to be made into zombies, so I really was able to let loose on it. The first sketch was pretty successful in capturing the feel that I wanted, but they wanted it to be a little more simplified and stylized with the heavy black lines etc.. so I went a bit more cartoon-y/rockabilly. Once they were happy with the inks, some flat tones were dropped in for some t-shirt and flyer printing. The final image is a bit more rendered out in photoshop, complete with more textures and richer tones to flesh out the forms.

Sam at dementia-design.com did the logo and pre-press for the final.
