Zombie in Affinity Designer

Zombie in Affinity DesignerHere is yet another Halloween Horror Head I created in Affinity Designer. This guy is a zombie, but not the flesh-eating variety that first hit cinema screens back in 1968 and seem to have never left. I meant this guy as more of a traditional zombie of Voodoo legend and very old movies that once played regularly on UHF television stations. Sure, he’s a member of the living dead, but his existence is a hellish one of indentured servitude even after he has expired. That is the sad and miserable thing about zombies — there is no such thing as retirement. Always at somebody’s beck and call. Worked his whole life; died, and then he has to work his after-life until his body falls apart.

I worked on this creature over a couple of early mornings as I was waiting for my son to be picked up for school. This fellow came out a lot better than my attempt at vector walking corpses I tried in Illustrator a few years back. Affinity Designer seems to make it more fun. Maybe that’s why this is turning into a series.
