I had fun creating with Pop culture zombie girl!

This is another full on digital art piece created in Photoshop CS6 and Paper 53.
I started out by colouring the zombie girl on my iPad using a stylus and an awesome drawing application called Paper 53.  I had an absolute blast working on this piece although it took many many hours to complete.  Many people think it's faster and easier to create and colour digis in Photoshop but that's an incorrect assumption.  It actually takes way longer, images can take many hours and even days to colour before even getting to project assembly.  Once I was happy with my zombie I then moved over to Photoshop and completed my project with the addition of the text and background layers.
