How to draw Zombie horde in comics panel. Apart from just drawing, this one also include step by step digital painting tutorial. Here is another quick painting tutorial that I was supposed to post on Halloween. But apparently too much treat for me at the time so I got a flu, I think, for a couple days. Now I’m recovering from it. A little late but better than never. Anyway, same as always, I start off with just shapes and silhouettes. Typically they don’t really look like anything at first but just maybe resemble some figures and gestures. Then I start to give it simple values (light and dark, render) and forms. Start with big shapes at first, don’t be too concern with tiny little detail yet. Then I rearrange the values and try to get the correct values into the right place. If you do it right, your image can look real. Lighting is the key, sometimes I get really close…but most of the time when I finish, they often lost something along the way. I have to paint more pictures and observe and study really carefully until I will get it to the point that I really want. But for now, here didn’t turn out that bad.
Anyhow, a zombie is typically a reanimated corpse, or a human being who is being controlled by someone else by use of magic. More recent stories have used a pandemic illness to explain them. Stories of zombies originated in the West African spiritual belief system of voodoo, which told of the people being controlled as laborers by a powerful wizard. Zombies became a popular device in modern horror fiction, largely because of the success of George A. Romero’s 1968 film Night of the Living Dead.
Below are step by step how to draw and paint multiple zombies in a comics panel. Step one, just rough sketch of four bodies that looks like they are chasing the camera view. Step two, now I fresh out the first figure in the front. You can now see his face, hair style and hoodie clearly. And he is coming after you or looks like it. Step three, now I begin adding more detail for the figure on the left with a mo-hawk and a female figure from further away. Step four, now I can finish up the last figure and I made his face a little more mess up than the rest. Step five, I can now begin to add color in since I already have most of the value or shading figured out. Step 6, I then try to finish the painting by using light and shadow.
