Dead or decayed bodies are an interesting challenge as an artist. When you're drawing living figures, you can really play with shapes since flesh, muscle, and fat vary so much person to person. However, when you break that down and you're relying more on the skeleton and less on the soft tissue, the focus has to change. Unless you're the Elephant Man, your skeleton and skull probably looks just about the same as anybody else. Gesture gives way to texture and the form naturally takes on more angularity. Once the structure of the skull or skeleton is established you can start adding on uneven layers of the remaining flesh. It's all very gruesome and interesting to think about.
This applies also to zombies and the undead in general.
A fun fact about corpses is that the hair and nails continue to grow for a few days after death.
These guys work in a quarry, or they used to, I guess. They mostly just lie around rotting these days.
Next time I'll draw some baby deer or whatever.
