..zombie babies on the other hand, turned out to be relatively easy to deal with.

*image notes: hand inked. colour work in Gimp. This is my first attempt at colourising the line work, and I think I do like it this way better (versus black lines). Let me know what you think.

  • thanks V. :) It’s tricky to try to keep these kinds of designs very simple in style while avoiding them looking amateurish. I’m not sure I quite pulled it off, but fun trying.

    Another clever idea that’s been tastefully designed for the t-shirt medium.

    I’ve just begun colourising lines myself and I think the trick is to make the lines thicker and more accented than usual. Here’s my first attempt:

    …and next to it an example of how it’s really done by fizzgig

    Give it a few weeks and we’ll both have it down. Maybe we could collaborate on a tutorial? But then I’d have to learn Gimp… I’ll get back to you! :)

  • thanks for the feedback Mike. I debated back and forth for a while about how much to colour the lines; mostly black with a hint of colour, or full colour? I ended up going somewhere in between; full colour but significantly darker so as to maintain the definition.
    I see you went more for the very dark lines with a hint of colour which also looks great. Fizzgig’s does look awesome, keeping the line colour just barely at the darker end of the colour range so it almost blends in. Fantastic work.
    I don’t know that there is one better than the other but I love seeing the different approaches and trying them out.

  • oh, yes I love doing tutorials. And while I use Gimp by preference, I also have (and know how to use) Photoshop.

    I didn’t know zombies have babies. And such cuties too!

  • well… umm, no I don’t think they have babies. But babies can catch zombie germs. You know how it is. :)

    Cool artwork.

    I believe fizzgig uses Adobe illustrator for his artwork.

    If you lock the transparency in the lineart layer in Photoshop or Gimp you can recolor the outlines.

  • Sweet. I’m a real beginner when it comes to Illustrator but that sounds sensible. In Gimp I keep the lineart as the separate top layer which also makes colouring of it relatively easy. It also helps to separate and protect it while working on shading and effects on other layers.

    Horrifically sweet, in that special way that only zombie babies can be. Love it!

  • hehe, yes it’s lucky zombie babies are somewhat of a rarity. To the average full sized zombie, babies are only slightly more than bit-sized, so there’s usually not enough left over for the zombification process to do it’s work.
