Art for the official The Return of the Living Dead T-shirt released buy Gutter Garbs. My last artwork for The Return of the Living Dead films.

I love Dan O'Bannon's 1985 zombie punk masterpiece Return of the Living Dead! so very excited to tackle this one. As with the designs i created for 2 and 3 I wanted to do something different which hadn't been covered much by other artists, like the tar man zombie and Linnea Quigley's Trash character. So i chose to recreate one of William Stouts original production sketches for the half corpse zombie (you can see it pictured in the thumbnails below).

I chose to do something a bit different with the facial expression and give her the "Braaaaiiiinnnnns" scream that you see in the film. then elaborate more on the background to create a mist covered graveyard.
