Cassie Makes Some New Friends by SquirrelShaver Cassie Makes Some New Friends by SquirrelShaver
This is hands down one of the most fun I've had working on a cover since I started doing comics professionally a couple years ago.

Moonstone, the company that publishes "Zombies Vs. Cheerleaders, was generous enough to ask me to do a cover for their "Hack/Slash Meets Zombies Vs. Cheerleaders" and this is what I came up with. I've been itching to do Cassie from the Hack/Slash series since I discovered it about a year ago and to combine her with Zombies?! Hell yeah! I love doing covers for this series I certainly hope for the chance to do more. I always feel my art comes out best when I'm given free reign with a concept and this case is no different I'm really pleased with how the pencils turned out for this one especially Cassie's eye for some reason.

I see now that the perspective is a little off, but it's been a weak point of mine in the past as well. Gotta start studying those damn horizon lines!

*edit* To the ass-hat clown who keeps reporting all my posts as "mature content needed :boo-hoo:" Get your over sheltered head out of your vagina and piss off for good. If you're THAT easily offended by things on the internet and specifically my gallery you're better off staying away and drowning your mind in the Lifetime Network or something easier to digest.

Is it any problem for you if i use this one for ink practice and put it on my DA account in search of critics (obviously with link to your account and credits!)?

You 've done it again! There's something to your drawings that keep me coming back and wanting more! hahahaha. The dynamics are great as always, its a very lifely girl!Congrats!

On the other hand; never mind the reports! Keep it up! I guess that is what is not shown by the girls, the thing that annoys the most! Gotta keep something to yourself hahahahahaha.

Once again, well done, I'm looking foward to seeing the next drawing!

Man, hands down you do the most absolute beautiful faces around..and and the sexiest bodies as well. I love your work, to me you fit in with Marc Silvestri and Joe Mad, awesome detailed pencil work.
If you made an art book full of your work I would buy one for sure.

You are welcome dude. I idol your work along with theirs (Marc and Joe) now. Hopefully I can be as good as you and them. I'd love to see one of my characters drawn by you. She is quite hot, so you would make it even better, lol. Any chance of you doing a commission?
Also would you make an artbook sometime, it would be cool.

Love love love it! Cassie Hack! Cheerleader! What more could you ask for? Oh, right...ZOMBIES! Ha ha. You know what, I think your perspective actually works in that it creates a sort of distorted, crazy, closed in vibe to it.

the "no sleep and lots of beer" is one of my specialities, although the other one is gonna be a bit hard to accomplish, is it enough to be able to GET a large penis at a time of your own choice? I consider that to be a skill in any case
