mspaint.  12 colors. thanks goes out to all those in the forums who helped with their crits and suggestions. enjoy.

Now with lengthy story! :

A young man walks down an abandoned street, empty save for a hot dog vendor's cart that sits in the middle of the road.  His only possessions are the clothes he now wears, and the baseball bat that he holds in his hand.  During the past few weeks, that bat has not only been his only means of survival; it has been his only friend.  As far as he knows, he is the last of his kind.  The sole individual  whose heart still beats.  The only person with the ability to think.  He is the last living man on earth.  Up ahead, he hears a faint noise.  He can't decipher what precisely it is, but that doesn't matter.  It can only be one thing. As he draws closer, the noise grows more pronounced.  There is no longer any doubt in his mind.  The undead lie ahead.  He cautiously approaches the intersection ahead.  As he turns the corner to his left, he tightens his grip on the bat.  His palms are sweating with anticipation.  A group of people come into his line of sight.  He knew they were people no more.  He draws a deep breath and whistles as loudly as his dried lips allow.  The rotting creatures slowly turn around to face him.  A particularly fat one stands no more than a dozen feet away.  As the undead shamble towards him, the man focused on this one.  With each passing second, the being draws closer and closer.  Soon, the stench of his decomposing flesh fills the young man's nostrils.  But he remains where he is, bat in hand.  The creature is now only a few feet away from him.  He looks into its eyes, and the corpse stares blankly back at him.  He draws another deep breath, now gripping the bat with both hands.  His enemy lets forth a horrifying moan.  He sets his jaw, and swings...

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) at 6/19/2009 1:30:00 PM

the story keeps switching between past and present tense which makes a jumbled narrative.

also, the teddy bear in the road is a nice touch.

murd3rkitty (Level 1 Depressed) at 11/12/2006 12:03:00 AM

Total favourite now.  All it needs is a Vincent Price zombie!  Instant fav!

Wannahlakujuu, you're right, like ThereIsNoCure said; it was actually the direct inspiration of George Romero's original "Night of the Living Dead," and it treated vampirism as a virus, not a mythological affliction; plus in the Vincent Price movie, the vampires were very zombie-esque.

Anyway, again, great job; totally going to use this as a reference for my n00bish crap.  :P


user
cure (Level 10 Capo) at 9/22/2006 4:30:00 PM
It is indeed.  It is however, the book that set the stage for modern zombie horror, as it contrains many elements that are now canons of the genre.

user
Wannahlakujuu (Level 1 Rookie) at 9/22/2006 3:14:00 PM
Erm, isn't I Am Legend a book about Vampires?
Heh, whatever, it's pretty...so much gore...so pretty...

user

user
big brother (Level 11 Admiral) at 6/14/2006 9:47:00 PM
Great attention to detail! I think a lot of the shades are pretty close in value, especially on the skin. Since you only are using 12 colors, you might want to split up the range a bit.

user
Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) at 6/14/2006 8:46:00 PM
Ah, ok, gotcha!  I think I see a few cigarette butts, too.  Good job then

user

I love every aspect of this. From the amount of detail to the pallete, all beautiful. My only complaint is that you stopped working on it. 5/5 + fav.

user
Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) at 6/14/2006 4:36:00 PM
I must say this has been a great grin enducing WIP and now it's finished it looks lovely. The small details are what really make it i think, like the girl clawing for her teddybear, the rat, and the ketchup and sauce bottles. You probably could have done more to it, but it's also great as it is. Well done, ~fav.
