HUGE thanks to everyone who voted for the zombie concept!

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/696477/if-im-going-down-...[/url]

Now we have received the sketch from the Amazing Aaron Wong and we need to decide if we like it as is or if we want anything changed. (My thoughts are below the image).



My thoughts are...

- Make dog look deader
- two more leashes one with a mass almost unable to make out it was a dog, and one just the leash the dog long since gone
- Hoodie down not on head

what are your thoughts?

I actually like the hoodie up. But I do agree that some more leashes would be good.

Re: If I'm Going Down... - Fan Voted Zombie Sketch
I agree with the hoodie down and making the dog look deader.

I don't really like the idea of having an "indistinguishable mass" of dog though, as it kind of defeats the reason I voted for the dog-walker in the first place.

I had envisioned a zombie jogger (shambler?) running ahead of his dog, who has stopped to pee on a hydrant. The musculature/bone structure of the dog would be showing and one of its hind legs (which has fallen off) would be shown next to the hydrant.

Maybe rip the clothes a little bit more too, as you don't really get a sense that this is a zombie (in black and white at least) other than in the face.

Will be interesting to see how this changes with color application.

Agreed on the "rip the clothes a little bit more too"
Probably should have hand/fingers missing or dangling too (too much?)
It's funny when i read the initial description, i didn't picture the dog(s) as zombified as well but pretty much dead from being dragged by the zombie walker ... zombie

Part of the reason I say that is there is already an existing zombie with a hoodie on and up.

Ah. Well, that makes sense, then.

If the zombie jogger is dragging the dog, why is the dog in front of him? Shouldn't it be behind him a bit, maybe with a taught leash?

I said two more in addition to this dog, not instead of.

Great comments everyone!

So I'm thinking...

Hoodie down and more rips on the zombie, dog a bit behind the zombie and dead (not zombified), two more leashes with other dead dogs and or blood. Not loving him carrying the body or head in the other arm, but if more folks speak up in favor of that (or thumb it) I will go with that if that is what the fans want.

I am going to send the comments back tomorrow so if any more comments or opinions please get them soon.

Yep. That's pretty much how I envisioned it when I suggested this one for the contest, zombie

Re: If I'm Going Down... - Fan Voted Zombie Sketch
I would change the pants to jogging shorts (like the nike shorts from the 80's) also there is a dog walkers waist harness that I have seen some jogger/walkers use that can have like 6 dogs attached to it, that way you can have arms free. Would be fun to see something like that, you could have dogs in various stages of decay and also have a leash or two be empty but still have the blood stains.

Just a thought.

For those following along, someone put IIGD up on the Kickstarter Geeklist as "coming soon" and I decided, "What the hell, I'll reveal Fletcher a little early. The game will be on KickStarter within the next 24-48 hours... (closer to 24).

Take a look... well done guys. We created a badass zombie together. I hope you'll join me to do it again on KickStarter!
