El Zombo Pinup

Here's a really fun commission I drew for Dave Wilkins' forthcoming 'El Zombo' book.  El Zombo is a wrestlin', ass-kicker of the undead who's a hit with the ladieeees.  Oh, and he's a zombie, too.

A little of the Process:

I toyed with the idea of our hero 'whoopin' ass' on some unfortunate ghoul, but decided it would be funnier if he were calm amongst a crowd of chaos.
