Loving the artwork and style. Capturing the mood well with the colours, could be a bit more intense with the dialogue though.
I swear to god, ZW is not an self insert. I'm just using Detlef as a nickname on Facepunch.... and Steam. [editline]6th January 2011[/editline] I hate self inserts

who you callin assbut boi btw love the colour thing you got going on (few first pages at least)
Great comic, site layout could use a little work. Nothing serious, but an index of sorts down the side of the page or something so I can figure out which parts I've already seen and what I'm up to without starting at the end and flicking back trying not to spoil it for myself. Basically the archive somewhere on the main page. Can be discreet, doesn't matter. But having it there without having to click to the archive'd be great.
Detlef can you update more? I love it but it seems to be going at a snails pace at the moment. It has also provided inspiration for my own zombie comic, named "A Shittly drawn zombie epic". I expect to show it on FP when I can get the bloody character proportion right.

[editline]9th January 2011[/editline] fuck I update twice a week and it's still not enough?

Keep up the awesome work Detlef, I'm not too sure about the other guy having your name though. It reminds me of self-inserts and even though you hate it (probably as much as I do) it would be a good idea to maybe change that. Especially if it's his name, it's an extremely uncommon name and I think a more 'normal' name would fit a lot better.

I came up with the character Detlef 4 years ago and I named him that because it's like the most common name in Germany. And he is German. I know that that hasn't come out in the story yet but it doesn't matter. And my real name is not Detlef. I am female. He's just a character I stole a name from to use as a user name on Facepunch. Nothing more.

[QUOTE=Detlef;27326400]Holy shit guys i must have done something right because [url]http://cloud9comix.com/[/url] wants to publish zombie Waffe![/QUOTE] Looking at their other comics, your art style is similar to that of others. You're also setting yourself up for a good story. [img]http://static.facepunch.com/fp/ratings/winner.png[/img]

Congrats on the recognition man, that's awesome!
Ill be sure to read the comic when I get back at base. The website looks nicely put together, and I like your way of drawing.
Even though I don't know you, there is something about finding this from a facepunch user that makes it seem more impressive. If this was any random web comic i wouldn't read too far into it. The artwork is amazing though! Nice job. Edit: Also I'm not much of an artist but I was wondering how you go about creating that 'hand painted' watercolor/smudge look you apply to textures etc. I would normally just use a generic gradient but yours art appears to be so natural and sexy. Just brush opacity and manually choosing shades? I have no idea what i'm talking about :v:

It's not very advanced though it's just a simple round pressure sensetive brush. I sometime lower the opacity but everything is just me painting with different color tones until I get the result I want. No fancy filter/smudging applied.
Well, I think your work is great and you inspired me to try something on my own. I'm pretty good at drawing and i made a few comics in my spare time, but I don't have a tablet so my PC drawings aren't too good. Anyways i just made this in Gimp, a bit of Fan art, maybe it can go up on your website. the other 2 are just me experimenting.
