Swan of the Dead!!! :XD:

I'm debating putting two people sidekicks in the middle for that nice visual unity that comes when seeing things in groups of 3. We'll see!

This took me a lot longer to make than it probably appears. If I remember correctly it was probably 10 hours while watching TV.

I made the majority of this over a year ago and never finished it. Everything but the border zombies was done in a 10-year-old Paint Shop Pro 7 program, and I finished it off with the border zombies today in Photoshop CS4. I don't like how some of the zombies came out and I'm still considering changing the center, so this is technically still a work-in-progress.

Overall Reference (Official DVD cover): link

Swan (Shaun): link

Font (Which I modified): link

Other Fonts:
- Century Gothic (on the name tag)
- Trebuchet MS (for the "Unforgettable" sign)

Additional Credits:
- Thanks to linux_mofo link for saving me the time of figuring out the fonts to use on Swan's name tag. I created the name tag on my own (zoom in on the name tag for a small bird joke, by the way [and if you can't see it, it says "Fowlee Electric" which is a play on the name of the establishment Shaun works at in Shaun of the Dead]) and am not ripping them of their name tag, I promise. :)

I more or less exhausted the zombie stock on deviantART, so if anyone has usable zombie, undead, ghoul, living dead, etc. photos lying around I'd love to take advantage of them and to fix and "flesh" out the border! :)

You went kind of overboard on the crediting.

But this is a great box - though it'd get more views if it was name Swan of the Dead.

Eratosthenes? A nickname from Ancient Greece?

#3, I credited everyone's work that I used. Had I not I would have been violating their stock rules and copyrights and thus the law.

#4, Thanks! How do I do that?

#5, You're quite correct!
