ZOMBIES ARE BAD THUMB WRESTLERS; despite the whole scary, undead, I-want-to-eat-your-brains thing, they're really quite fragile creatures. Be tender.

This wasn't the idea I was planning to pursue for this week, but it was actually my original idea. I just wasn't sure I could pull it off. Before I sat down tonight to paint it up, I hadn't been happy with any of my sketches. For some reason, though, the right lines kept seeming to find their way out, so I stuck with this idea. I'm happy with it overall. Not too shabby for a few hours' work.

Week One, complete! Lookin' forward to Week Two. Until then, enjoy!

Congrats on the first full-color piece of the blog Marshall! Great idea and equally great execution. I love the expression on both of their faces, and I really dig the rim light on the pirate.

The skull and crossbones tattoo is a sweet idea!

Nice idea and illustration. I probably would have cowered out of a vertical composition of 2 guys in a shot - or at least would not have thought of it. It really helps to emphasise the hand area of the comp.

Very nicely done - a clever idea pulled off beautifully. The pirate's aggressive and self-satisfied look is perfect.

Ha ha! I had the same idea! But nowhere near polished. Great layout/execution!

Is that concept in the air or something. What are the odds of 2 people doing that particular gag. Good stuff.

Whoever wins...WE LOSE!!! Seriously, excellent work in a cramped time frame. Still wanna see your tug-o-war, though!
