How To Draw A Toxic Waste Zombie

A toxic waste Zombie sounded quite fun to draw when a YouTube subscriber requested it and it was certainly fun to draw. I created 3 videos for each step and they are as follows:-

Video 1 - The pencil sketch

Trying to draw something from scratch can be quite difficult but I tried to lay it out in easy to follow terms and with a little bit of practice you can draw Zombies like this too. Notice at the beginning of the video I did a diagonal line attached to a circle, this was a simplistic shape reference to try and capture an idea on the paper and luckily it worked this time around.


Video 2 - The Inked Zombie Sketch

This stage it's about creating a more complete drawing by inking over all of the important pencil lines and adding more details. At this point it's about correcting anything that doesn't look right and at the end of the inking stage you can rub out all of those old construction pencil lines which guided you along the way.

Video 3 - Coloring Your Zombie

This was the stage that took longer as it meant coloring in the whole Toxic Zombie drawing, I used Crayola Color pencils to add some color and I tried to make the zombie look rotten and as horrible looking as I could. You may find that color pencils aren't your medium, so anything else will do, felt tips, sharpie markers, paints etc.

At some point I will upload the HD versions of this little drawing video series as they not only look better, they are better to watch. Draw some cool and inspired Zombie drawings and see what comes of it!
