I started this a while ago, as a redo of a piece that didn't came out quite the way i wanted it to (http://www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation/index.php?topic=5922.msg69650#msg69650), but I never got anywhere with it.
Thus, this isn't a brand spanking new piece, tho I never finished, nor posted it anywhere.

Dunno if it's in compliance with the challenge rules, if not, just remove it from the entry list.

In any case, I enjoyed finishing it, and I hope you'll enjoy it too.

Really nice lighting and composition.

very nice)

Thanks w-alligator, and to everybody else for the comments.
I know it must be annoying as this was almost disqualified, I'm sorry :/
Your entry was very cool btw.
@ BBill: I agree, shading is a tad overdone, espc. on the old lady zombie.
@ Adam: Yea, colors would've improved it, My initial idea was to go with a bluish lightsource from right and a yellowish from the molotov, didn't have the time unfortunatly . Nice edit btw.
@ Everyone who mentioned it, yea the lightning could've used some dithering or something to break it up.

congratulations vedsten, looks like the better artist won.  drat it all!

minipuck (Level 2 Corporal) @ 10/27/2008 09:18
i'd like to see you do better.

Grats on first place vedsten.

Cactus_Hat (Level 1 Thug) @ 10/27/2008 02:06

I dont like it, the shading and lightning is badly made and the picture is overall boring.

asukicco (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 10/24/2008 13:36
Awesom shading work... I always find gray a difficult color to shade properly. Same as brown. 5/5.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 10/23/2008 18:09
I personally think the monochrome PLUSRED look is overdone.
And I think the living fellow could use some teeth showing.
My favorite is the the zombie veiled in darkness towards the back.

I Am Uh (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/23/2008 12:21
I think this one's my favorite. Cool lighting effects.

PixelSpy (Level 5 Captain) @ 10/23/2008 09:47
This truly is reminiscent of George Romero's NOTLD and captures the Zombie mythos perfectly. My only crit would be to add a dash of red, the blood on the door frame would be perfect for it.

minipuck (Level 2 Corporal) @ 10/22/2008 07:43
i vote for him, it's not like he edited a old piece in my eyes. He completely re-did it so its a completely new work

Chace (Level 5 Captain) @ 10/22/2008 03:10
Awesome vibe.   

madPXL (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 10/21/2008 15:21
very nice, maybe some red color areas are missing on your piece.

Pregnant_Cow (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 10/21/2008 11:47
Dithering on the lighting might help, but I don't know if it would make it look a little sloppy or not.. I like it though, you did very good at capturing their expressions. 4/5

schrumpfkopf (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 10/21/2008 09:05
good stuff - i like the lights and the resulting atmosphere a lot

Kingy (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 10/21/2008 01:43
Definately gets my single vote... its amazing.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 10/21/2008 00:03
I'm also a rule nazi, and partly to blame for not correcting this breach in time.  That is the only reason this didn't get my vote as well.  Great work, definitely gets a +fav from me.

pixelaro (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/20/2008 10:27
Great as always, love the lightning on the zombie in the back. Best entry in the contest, though I'm a rule-nazi so cant vote for you. :/

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/20/2008 10:24
Superb chance of this winning - looks amazing.

cerealkiller54 (Level 6 Made) @ 10/20/2008 07:36
Very nice job!  Same crits as before posts, but also the man's mouth looks too square for my liking.

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 10/20/2008 06:01
great job there :D ....

ElectroNico (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/20/2008 02:31
Really great atmosphere ! Perhaps you could have put some dithering on the wall and around the flame, but the pic is already great.

Cheshire (Level 1 Intern) @ 10/19/2008 21:06

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 10/19/2008 15:20
Wow! I really like this one! It reminds me of night of the living dead. Great shading, and a cool composition!

Heart Puppetere (Level 1 Gangster) @ 10/19/2008 10:44
excellent shading with all that black and grey, looks like an old movie scene lol great job

Ricki (Level 1 Seaman) @ 10/19/2008 09:29
Amazing work. Love your work with light&shadow ...:) Really great.:) Fav'd, 5/5!

Ghostclown (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 10/19/2008 08:56
I really like this. Awesome job!

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 10/19/2008 08:51
Wonderful piece indeed!!!

Malor (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/19/2008 07:13
Oh this definitely has my vote. 6/6 and fav'd. I'll try and come up with useful AA sometime.

Adam (Level 9 Human) @ 10/19/2008 05:34
Looks great. One of my votes for sure. I like the threshold quantized shading, though I think some colors would have spiced up this piece even more.

Haru-D (Level 1 Thug) @ 10/19/2008 04:48

Ok, I thnk this deserves to be 1st place in the challenge.


RAMTO (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 10/19/2008 00:15

withalligators (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/18/2008 22:57

DoomDoom (Level 5 Detective) @ 10/18/2008 21:41

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 10/18/2008 20:11
Some bits look a bit too smooth and plastic-like. I love it overall though.

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/18/2008 19:32
Very nice!
