Resident Evil

1K Favourites
Jill Valentine from the GameCube remake of the original Resident Evil... or REmake as I call it.

I wanted to capture the "fear" element of the game, not the gore. I wasn't interested in showing an action shot of any kind. I didn't want the detail of a zombie's decaying flesh to be the focus here. I just wanted to show an expression. Thats it. I felt that the shadow really served as both a tribute to the lighting in the game and it was a great way to have a zombie in the image without even actually showing him.

I hope you like the final image.

What's wrong Jill, did you get scared of a little zombie?

Excellent work with the coloring, too. You definitely captured the element of fear well here in Jill's expression- and the zombie shadow. :)

Absolutely stunning artwork! I've just completed a walk-through for this game. I was wondering If I might be able to use this piece for the you tube thumbnail?

I really like this image, it does exactly as you say, captures the fear and tells the story without even the need to show a zombie. I love how it tributes to the game too, the lighting, etc. Shame the films didn't have more of this kind of feel! 

Great work. :)

Wonderful! It's great to see a more subtle take on the horror element of the game, rather than the "guns blazing" approach that is far more common now. Amazing work!
