Zombified - Paneki's Disgrace. by SteveArgyle Zombified - Paneki's Disgrace. by SteveArgyle
Everytime I see this painting, the line from Army of Darkness plays in my mind.

"You found me beautiful once..."

Because of his newly bonified fingers, Zombie Paneki has discovered a joyful new hobby in the world of fingerstyle banjo. (Just when you thought the theme to "Deliverance" couldn't be any creepier...)

The astute scholar of fictional histories will notice that he has Shoju's mask. I thought that was a fun homage to a lovely heritage of evil. Proudly corrupt of the world, unite! (Also, I figured he'd need a bigger mask to avoid catastrophic undead cottonmouth. Yep, I'm considerate like that.)

We can play a fun game, you and I. Everyone join in for the newest party game: "What the Hell is that Blobby Thing on the Stone Pedestal?"

The blobby thingy: A depiction of lovers embrace turned testamentary slag of lost lust, dead libido and the dangers of acid rain. Daily doused in the venerable venom of giant scorpions that are soon to compose a new undead arachnid army of woe.

"Baby, you got REAL ugly."

Seriously though, this is badass. I really love that he looks partly mummified around the brow and eyes but the mouth is still incredibly...juicy.

The blobby thing is obviously a pornographic statue. Why would he have something like that? Well, ain't like he's ever going to get any, so...

Anyway, great work on the zombification. And the thought of him playing banjo may give me nightmares. Thanks so much for that. You really are such a considerate person.

A rotting, putrid zombie pornographic statue? Hence the blobbiness?

Anyway, great work, Steve. Really creepy. You'll be surprised to know that it accidentally got released and packed in with the new set of L5R the came out about a month ago. If you want proof, go check out the Dragon Clan forums under new set releases.
