Night of the Living Dead: Karen Cooper by AzrielMordecai Night of the Living Dead: Karen Cooper by AzrielMordecai
The iconic Karen Cooper zombie portrayed by the ever-beautiful Kyra Schon. Rendered in #2 and 4H pencil.

This is an iconic image that has certainly been reproduced by many artists already. I argued with myself whether I wanted to do this after it had already been done, but in the end, one fact won out: I LOVE NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, and this image, the little girl zombie, was one of the main things that I remember most about seeing this film for the first time when I was 8. Also, to have some knowledge of what a nice person Kyra Schon is in real life makes this more of an homage to both a movie and a wonderful person.

Fantastic...I love that movie too...why did zombie movies get so moronic and silly after that...But "The Walking Dead"changed all that, because it was inspired by a real movie, "Night of the Living Dead". It is sad how that dude gets killed in the end by the police/town people.

Very true on all counts. Night was fantastic and Dwayne Jones' fate at the end was something that haunted me as a youth. It was the first movie I'd ever seen without a happy ending, and I think it's still one of the most effective "downer" endings ever done. I've been a huge fan of The Walking Dead since I picked up issue #7 at a comics shop expecting the worst and finding the best. The show has managed to be faithful to the comic's heart and is amazingly well cast.

I've seen all of these ;)
Haxan is available in one of the most complete cuts I've found on Archive.org as a free download from their public domain films collection (along with Night of the Living Dead, which has a dispute over it's public domain status, and Nosferatu). The Exorcist and Shining are both great films. I'd also recommend the original Day of the Dead directed by George Romero. One guilty pleasure film of mine is an 80s film called CHUD. A great film with a great commentary track that will have you laughing for days. :)

Thanks! I was nervous how to approach the hair at first because it can really kill a good piece if it's done wrong. I think it kind of draws you into her gaze :)
