Below are some more digital paintings I created in Photoshop of characters from The Walking Dead television series. My first set of Walking Dead fan art can be viewed here on MoviePilot.

My Daryl Dixon painting from set 1 might possibly be in an upcoming book of Norman Reedus fan art, which you can read more about here ("Norman Reedus Thanks Fans, Promises “Great” Book of Artwork" - Wet Paint). I was informed that all proceeds from the book will go to charity.

I unfortunately did not see the e-mail from the book publisher (dated mid April 2014) requesting my art to appear until late May 2014, because it was buried under a mountain of spam and junk mail in my account.

I contacted the publisher and asked if the opportunity to have my art published was still available, and the spokesperson said after conferring with Mr. Reedus and other team members, that Mr. Reedus liked my painting and would like to have it included in the book. I hope my art makes it into the book, but it was quite close to deadline, so I'm not sure.

Regardless, I am happy to share my fan artwork with MoviePilot visitors and Walking Dead fans.

All of these were painted from scratch in Photoshop, and the series is entitled "Nightfall". The top three images: I ran various filters on the final paintings, and used a Wacom tablet, to produce artistic effects, such as making portions appear to be drawn in pencil.

Laurie Holden re-tweeted my painting of her as Andrea below and thanked me for the portrait, and Norman Reedus thanked me online for the Daryl Dixon painting below - I was very grateful to both of them for acknowledging my artwork.
