Coinciding with this week's release of Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge Special Edition for PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and iPhone, talented artist David Cousens posted this marvelous artwork of zombie pirate LeChuck and a Guybrush Threepwood voodoo doll.

Cousens and Photoshop tutorial site PSDFan published a cel-shading walkthrough to accompany the digital painting, teaching readers how they can create their own art in this style with lessons on shading, highlights, glazing, and more.

The artist warns readers that this "super advanced" tutorial is not for beginners. It's still worth looking through, though, just to see the artwork in its early stages and how Cousens was able to bring a rough sketch to life in 18 steps.
