At the SDCC this year, a man named "Snake Bite" was asking artists to customize shoes so he could take them to Japan and sell them for a whole lotta money. I decided to decorate my shoes with zombies because, let's face it, who doesn't love zombies? Well, a lot of people. My sisters would be at the top of that list. But I like em just fine.
You might be able to tell that the first image is the first shoe I did cuz it is the most f'd up. Up close it looks okay, but from far away it's nothing but a jumble of black and white. But I learned my lesson and did a little better job on the second-the one with maggoty face guy. And the third image is the insides of the shoes. Since I'm quite lazy and really didn't want to draw two more waves of zombies, I cheated and did some really easy blood splatters. Hell, they're never gonna see the insides anyway.
You might notice that his helmet is a direct rip off of the Akira character from Capcom's Rival Schools. Did I say rip off? Because I meant homage. Mostly because I'm not original enough to come up with my own helmet design. And Elaine's only suggestion was, "put a butterfly on it." Thanks for nothing Elaine! And, yes, I know I f'd up the visor.
I like this angle. Not because you can see my initials (I'm not that big headed) but because off to the right you can see a little better detail of my "pimp hat" guy. I like him the most. Even better than "rip off helmet" guy.
And these are the tongues. If you look closely, you can probably tell which one I did first. It's the nicer one. It turned out okay, so I figure I should be able to do it again. So I let my guard down, and VIOLA! I screw it up the second time. The laces should cover it. I hope...
