HALLS OF THE DEAD by sideshowmonkey HALLS OF THE DEAD by sideshowmonkey
It has been awhile since I put up a good 'ol damsel-in-distress-fighting-off-zombies-with-a-knife piece.

I started this one at the end of the work day and couldn't stop until it was finished. It's one of those things where you want to go home, you're hungry, but you can't leave until the thing is done.

Ah, now I can go get some pizza.

UPDATE: I just wasn't happy with the color on this one so I went back into it. The lack of atmosphere and overly green saturation bugged me.

Not directly. I came onto the project after principal photography wrapped up. He did give me a signed copy of his book for doing a ton of the fx. Pretty cool.

I would tell you how great this is, but I already did, in that e-mail last week. And I can only afford to waste so much of my precious, valuable time on you, as you are quite well aware.

Heh. The damsel in the foreground doesn't look all that distressed. I don't think I'd be that calm and determined looking if all I had to fight a bunch of zombies with was a knife. Melee combat with the walking dead rarely ends well. ;)

I have'nt seen a women fight off a zombie invasion in a long time, I think the last I saw was either Dead Alive or the Night of the Living Dead reamke.

It would suck to have to fight off zombies with a knife! :crazy: A pipe wrench or ball peen hammer would be better. :XD:

Enjoy the pizza, as it is much deserved after producing this pic! I do that all of the time. I usually never eat breakfast, because I get to working on something, then it's lunch before I get done...however I usually make up for it later, lol.

Love the pic, the colors are nice, the line work on the ladies is great too.
