One year for Halloween in a drawing class I took, my teacher made us draw ourselves as zombies.
Doing realistic works is not my favorite because I’m a bit of a perfectionist and when things don’t look exactly right I get a bit upset.
Thankfully, for this assignment we got to take reality and make it into something else.
I used a mirror to look at and drew the basic shapes of my face and then went to town making myself into a zombie. While probably not all of the injuries are anatomically correct, I had a lot of fun thinking up what I would make next. Skull sticking out, eye all messed up, throat exposed.
Instead of feeling forced into creating something that looked exactly like me I got to create myself in a gross, zombie way. And boy, is it gross.
