Night of the Drawn Dead

It's the time of year where all our hearts flutter with fear. It marks the return of The Walking Dead and Zombie Walks all over the world, but nothing will prepare your weak heart for Rob Sacchetto's Zombie Portraits. Rob turns your everyday googly mug into delightfully decaying masterpieces, so that even if you sleep with Max Brook's Zombie Survival Guide, you'll still be left shaking with fear beneath your bed.



You can (and should) read the whole process over at Rob's website, but it basically goes a little something like this: First he takes your photograph and draws your likeness with a pencil, which he considers the most crucial part of the whole process. "Likeness is paramount" he says, because "placement, proportion has to be spot on." Rob adds, "It's during this process that I look at light, facial structure and I go about creating a zombie that is still recognizable. I don't use any references, by the way, all this chaos comes from my twisted psyche." He then adds watercolor flesh-tones, which gives it a 'trauma' look and follows it up with ink to highlight all the small details that make his Zombie Portraits so unique. In all, it takes him between 3 to 6 hours to complete a portrait.

See more ghoulish examples below, while you still have a pulse.
