Never let go by AndreeWallin Never let go by AndreeWallin
Ok, this painting was bothering me too much for me to let it stay in my gallery so I had to put in scraps. Thank you everyone who fav'ed and commented on it, but most of you are right, the anatomy needs much more work and this is not something representative of what a finished piece should look like in my opinion.

Requested by ToZeG

First of all, thank you so much for all the suggestions! I read them all and it's always so incredibly hard picking just one, but since I really liked this idea (and I also noticed a few other zombie suggestions) I chose this one. I also felt that I had to practice my non-existent character skills.
The painting itself once again inspired by adonihs and marek, whose character skills I'd kill for. Fortunately for them they're too far away, so they're safe... for now.

Thanks for watching and see you all soon!

EDIT: I give up, I just can't get the girl the way I want her. But shouldn't be a surprise, I suck at anatomy.. I'm sorry, you're gonna have to take her as she is. :) The angle of her leg is intentional though, since the soldier is in the process of turning his body rapidly to the right.

Why does the soldier and the bulky zombie in the back have such short forearms?

I love this , it is full of drama and I love the expressions on the faces , not necessarily realistic but very dramatic ..... I think you are mistaken to dismiss this.

Holy shit dude this Picture is AMAZING! - Very nice work!

Scraps, schmaps! The motions and action in the scene is incredibly good. That alone should, even if you aren't satisfied with the piece as a whole, mark it as an excellent example of your ability to branch out of your comfort zone.

Also, zombies! Squeeeeeee!

Hey man don't sell yourself short I would kill for you're anatomy skills...... where do live again? lol
SneakyRaty Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2009
Dear lord I wish you could sell talent in a bottle. Sadly you can't. Hopefully, you don't need any. :D
The blood and smoke effects are out of this world, and your usual attention to details all over the palce truly makes this peice comme to life. I can almost hear them scream...

oh yeah, and that guy one the left is SO hunter from l4d. :3

God,I can never get tired of zombie apocalypse!
This work is so mesmerizing,love it!
Storm-is-king Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2009
Ok man...
this is hot lol
one thing i dont like is the lil girls face looks older then it should and she seems too short lol
and also i reccomend lightening instead of fire, the fire added into a zombie scene looks cool but ruins ur concept...
for your next painting i suggest trying a robots vs monsters scifi theme or something that would be cool

the motion blurred guy at the left just kick asses
defense2 Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2009
my only thing woudl be is that shes too small to have hanged on, hes going to lose the girl... but i like the painting, if its a acturall painting then its 1(insert infint 0's) better then anything i can do, if its painted in photoshop or other computer program it is 1(insert a large number of 0's) better then i can do. either way you have more skills then i do.

truly epic !!! :D
EquitasX Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2009
did you say that you suck at anatomy? I think the word isn't suck, but kick ass. Good work. Nothing like good old fashioned zombie ass kicking to inspire one before the work day.
juyideviant Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2009
BONO is saving kids !!! xD
ishmadrad Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2009

However, Andree is right. The girl is not "alright".
The rest of the picture is quite impressive. Nice details, blurring effects, lot of coolness.
ShadowSento Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2009  Student
OH god this is even more epic than the other two pictures I commented on >.<

Permission to use as a wallpaper? :D

You can really see the movie happening in this one. Super Badassery II: Bad with a vengeance.
I love how his hair manages to stay rad all the way through.

This is great, the mag in the air as he drops it out, the casings falling from the gun, it's a perfect snapshot of one moment in time, a brilliant picture. 5 stars[link]

Mind31 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2009
love this one... and I love the expression on the soldiers face... so dude... your character skills are better than you gonna admit... :P

you should maybe add some swoosh to the weapon in his left hand to show the turning of his body... to build "speed"... just a suggestion...
Sacknassos Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love all kind of Projects that involve Zombies :D
And i like how you gave him protection goggles... we've seen it all in 28 Days later.... getting Zombieblood in your Eye(s) will turn you into one of them in no time!! Almost no one thinks about this when doing movies/games/pictures... but you did. I salute you!
Beside this important fact the rest of the picture is.... great... wow... i don't find the right words to describe this... so i'll stick to.... epic.

Wow! That's amazing! Really have a sense of urgency there and fear on the little one's face! The struggle is clearly translated. Excellent work! :D
StreaksPsyche Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2009
True, the girl's legs are swayed away...though the girl could just have her legs around the soldier instead.

If the situation was real, that's what frightened kids would most probably do; wrap all limbs around the one who is protecting them and hold on tight.

Sick lighting and color! Just curious, do you do more life or photo studies?
