Artist's description:

In the run up to Halloween this year I really wanted to do some classic monster paintings. The idea was to create some spooky, atmospheric creature/character paintings.

Zombies are the reanimated corpses of the deceased. Zombies have been a prominent feature of the horror world for years, featuring in movies, video games and novels.

I didn't necessarily want this painting to be gory, despite the subject, so I kept the colours of the creature itself subdued and focused the pose to portray a lumbering corpse. You are your own life model - so I used photos of myself for reference, particularly for the hands.

I thought it would be interesting to set the scene during the day, with the heavy fog substituting for the dark of night. There's hints of Autumn in there too, in the tree, and the supporting colour palette.
