zombie apocalypse collector's cards by starsandpolkadots zombie apocalypse collector's cards by starsandpolkadots
On tumblr: [link]

This is just silly but it was also loads of fun! Casually copying the description from my tumblr because that's where I got the question about what kinds of weapons my guys would use in the zombie apocalypse. :D

The idea certainly isn't original, many people have done this before in some way and I always wanted to do something similar! YAY!

Holly isn’t much of a Zombie apocalypse person because of obvious reason. She isn’t fast and/or strong but well, since she can’t do anything about the situation, she’d probably simply use her walking stick as a weapon, if any of the creatures would come too near! I also imagine her to be an expert at hiding and throwing rotten vegetables/one week old cupcakes!

***

Believe it or not, I actually imagine Charlie being somewhat capable of dealing with Zombies! She’d probably want to use the classic baseball club spiked with rusty nails and she’d be all up for saving the lives of her friends. And her own, of course! An unccordinated and silly fighter but also a very dedicated one! Touch her loved ones and you’re dead. AGAIN. She’d also be somewhat good at irritating her subjects. C’mon. She’s still Charlie.

***

I’d have a super bad feeling about giving James an actual weapon (though the thought of him losing it is strangely appealing to me) but I guess he wouldn’t even need one because he’s actually a very fast runner and very agile, if necessary! You know, running, jumping over fences, etc. Also, he’d probably use anything he finds to fight back. He’d make a great decoy because of his ability to run and also the fact that he’d just want the whole thing to be over! Dedication and determination? Not so much. Irritation? Definitely. Because why dealing with a bunch of undead fuckers when you can hit up a pub and have a beer instead?

***

When it comes to Kieran, the better question would be which weapon he wouldn’t use because let’s face it: He’s insane. And stupid. And he’d have the time of his life, oh yeah. And I just realised that bloodstains and cuts actually suit him. You know, while other men wear, dunno, ties to look fabulous, Kieran wears bloodstains and bruises instead. He just rocks those. ANYWAY. He’d love to use all sorts of guns (so I drew a random one here), knives, a bit of dynamite here and there… he’d also never forget a lollipop because we all know they’re his special skill.

***

No Jill because I can’t see her being an active Zombie fighter. I rather imagine her as the “brain” of the group, you know, taking care of their injuries, discussing tactics with them, etc. Though, actually, I imagine her being out of town JUST when hell breaks loose, so… xD

(I just realised that you could easily make a card game with those things. You know, an OC Zombie Apocalypse Quartets game. xD Several artist could participate, so the card deck would have, like, eight different groups of OCs annnnd... whatever! xD)

That's it! Now I gotta give credit where credit is due... let's seeee....

Fonts:

"Ballpark" --> [link]
"Downcome" --> [link]
"Webletterer" --> [link]

(I can't remember where I got the one I wrote the "stats" in. It's definitely a free font and I like it a lot and would LOVE to share it but - sorry! I just have no idea! :( )

Textures:

All characters belong to me! :heart: Drawn in Photoshop CS2 with a Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet! Don't use this image without my permission, don't claim it as your own, etc. Seemingly, this doesn'tgo without saying even though it should.

my own strategy for the Z-apocalypse, being as short and weak as Holly, is to hide until I can burst out in front of some loved one, saving that persons life, screaming "RUUUUUN!!!" at the top of my lungs until I too, perish. hopefully my friends will shoot me as soon as I turn. weakness is my strength in an apocalypse! weakness is what makes me a perfect decoy! weakness, being 157cm tall and not too strong at that, is what makes me ideal to sacrifice myself to let others live long lives. :heart:
so Holly IS strong, though not in the way most people think. Holly can save others by throwing herself at the monsters! smallness rules!

Haha, that's actually really adorable! :heart: Not sure if SHE would do it but she might, yeah. If it wasn't for her injury that makes physical action a bit difficult for her overall. And yeah. I know that there's not only physical strength. ;) Holly has a lot of inner strength and character indeed and that's what I enjoy about her. People think she's all cute and cuddly while she's actually ANYTHING but that. :D

haha I'm starting to realize that I have real trouble keeping this character separated from myself. I'm sorry about that, I'm not her and she isn't me. but she IS pretty awesome and cool! (just like me heehee) :XD:
and she would totally kick ass in a Z-apocalypse! at least, she'd try her hardest I bet!
but oh no! I'm one of those people that sees red and go berserk when I get enraged, and I applicated that ability on Holly too, totally without permission. I'm sorry! :(

Please don't apologise! :D It's a great compliment for me when people find themselves/parts of themselves in my characters! That means that they feel real enough to be actual people, you know? I always liked that. But yeah... they're fictional characters and not supposed to be/resemble someone and there's only so much likeness they CAN have to a living person. If something about her isn't quite like you (or someone else), that's the way it is. Characters be characters, real people be real people. No big deal. :D

it's a little like when I found a comic book where the lead girl has my name, my background, my looks (as they where in my teens) and my temprament. I wrote to the maker and asked if he knew me but it was all accidental. like with Holly. :heart:
but wait... err... this makes me feel a bit like a character, that I resemble this one AND the one with my name... ahwell. everypony can't be like a real person I suppose... :giggle:

I love this idea, "collector's cards." And each description of the characters made me laugh. I was wondering if you used a meme, or came up with the card idea all on your own?

Also, I'd like to say that I love all of your characters, especially the ladies, they remind me of my friends and I.

Haha, thank you! :) The card thing isn't a meme (I guess) but it isn't exactly new either. I've seen many people do it before, in various ways and I just created my own version here! :)

Haha, you're welcome. I was just wondering because I think my one friend would love to see herself on a zombie apocalypse card along with me and her other friends. I just didn't want to "steal" the idea or anything, I would feel bad. :D

I can totally see Jill as the Oracle/Penelope Garcia of the group. Hanging out at HQ linked in with a headset and barking orders.

Haha, yeah, something like that! :D I always kinda saw her doing a job like that, actually. But now I'm a bit afraid that people will accuse me of copying even though I've never seen a single episode of Criminal Minds and I only learned about the Penelope Garcia character after people pointed out to me that Jill reminds them of her. xD

What happened to Holly's leg?
I thought it was a zombie but after seeing this I thought it might have been something else, like falling when trying to climb a fence or something?

I'd just like to link to the whole story, if you don't mind. I get this question so often and I figured it's the easiest way to simply write it down for everyone. :D [link] It's a bit of a sad/traumatic event, though, soo... just a little warning (even though there are no details/no graphic descriptions). :D
