Here's another fun piece, you people things.

So here we've got a girl (YES, she's a girl and not a trap. Dammit, one of these days I'll get it so that people stop mistaking my women for men; and not by the obvious method, either) named Koponya, jumping dangerously from an unknown location to a more dangerous and more known location (i.e. - floor). But she can do this easily! Not only must she bend to the artist's will, but she can survive a fall from that height because she is already dead!

Though I'm certain you're all anxious to hear about how I can so shamelessly misuse "survive," I'm afraid I'll have to instead move on to the boring topic of Koponya's state of death. As it stands, she is a Natural Zombie (not at all like the unnatural kind) that is able to operate even after death by unconventional means. And unlike your typical zombie (which in context is called a Half Zombie and is created from normal corpses after studying Natural Zombies), she is able to reattach her body parts and avoid decay. Details are unimportant and academically obscene, so I will skip those.

Anyhow, in Deadface, the story takes place in a ghost town inhabited by Half Zombies. They face a crisis in which they are hunted by humans brainwashed by generations of theater and video games. It is up to Koponya or anyone else who is interested to rescue the zombie people and deliver them from their hating predators! Yeay yeay yeay.

This here is another experimental coloring style for me, in which I used less shading and relied more on color choice. Again, super fun - probably even more fun than eating onion rings until the roof of your mouth hurts when it touches your tongue.

Oh, and the origin of the title "deadface" comes from my attempt to create an 8-character hexidecimal password for my router once. DEADFACE in base-16 represents 3,735,943,886 in base-10. Cool stuff, eh? It'll save your life one day. Canonically, though, I'll say that "deadface" is the title given to the zombie savior or something. Or maybe it'll be what they call zombies in this world. Well, in any case, it has nothing to do with a comic from the 90's.

Nope, just a one time art.
