Our zombie contest came to a close with a flood of entries last week and it was a pleasure to look though all the submissions. Plenty of up-and-coming artists as well as established artists took part in creating a zombie. The creativity was overwhelming and the art beautiful to see. If you missed the amazing creativity of the last contest you can catch up on all the fantasy contest winners here.
