    MEMORY OF SHIVA - THE WALKING DEAD COVER
    1- I decided to make a The Walking Dead cover when I watched Season 8 Episode 4 of The Walking Dead TV Show. Because of Shiva is dead 😞
    2- Searched a blank cover template for The Walking Dead Comic
    3- Prepared it with Microsoft Paint and then I did print it on A4 Copy Paper
    **4-**My composition idea has came from an issue of Savage Sword of Conan ( Please check below image )

    **5-**After that decision I started to draw initial sketch. I was collected some tiger photos via Google as a reference. And I tried to choose most wild one 🙂
    **6-**Anyway please check below image for sketch and initial phase of inking ( using Platinum Carbon Ink )

    8- Actually I was not think to paint this cover. But one of my colleague asked me to paint it and I started to paint this cover with Copic Sketch Markers

    9- And here is final cover. Added a black border with Snapseed tool before to post it into my instagram account. I'm very happy about that and it took approximately 6 Hours. Please share your feedback with me because of it's very important for improvement.

  • @umutdulger I watch the show, hadn't made it to this episode but totally ignored your warning anyway. But I have to say I am glad I did because this is looking really good. And it has me excited to continue watching the show! Ha, great work.



  • Looks very cool artwork.



  • @jason-kilthau Thanks for your kind words and sorry for spoiler 🙂



  • @dottyp Thanks I'm happy to get another positive feedback.



  • Nice job, i actually prefer the black and white vs the color version.



  • @chip-valecek Hi; thanks for your feedback. Yes I prefer B&W version too because of this I'm still keeping original black and white version and I did painting on copy of original one 🙂
