The crime is life, the sentence is...
Most UK comic book readers will know who this is but for those who don't its the arch-nemesis super villain of Judges Anderson and Dredd from the weekly comic 2000AD who goes by the catchy name of Judge Death. He's like a zombie version of the title character Judge Dredd thought up and drawn twenty years before the US comic market went crazy for zombie comics of their own popular characters. It's not a new idea by any stretch of the imagination but it is a popular one.
Again, this is a painted version of a previous pencil sketch I produced and was painted purely in acrylics this time on an A3 sheet of paper. Good fun slapping paint down on this one and I think I managed to get some good detail in without feeling the need to go too fiddly and minute. I'm still on the hunt for some reasonably priced paint brushes though as my trip to the art shop brought on phrases like "Holy Cow, look at the price of that!", when did paint brushes become so dear? And as a true Scotsman my kilt purse stayed tightly closed.
