Pop art zombie special fx makeup tutorial

By  | 

Introducing the google eyed pop art zombie with a fantabulous hair.

In this episode we take on something that has been done by almost every sfx artist out there. The only difference is that we have a slightly stranger approach to the concept of the eyes. We went for big, fat google eyes to give the pop art zombie a unique look. Since body painting in general isn’t our strong suit we also incorporated some 3d elements using the classic cotton and latex method.

Another cool thing with this pop art zombie look is that the eyes are detachable. Perfect if you plan on riding the bike to the costume party. No need to worry about hitting oncoming traffic on your way there.

Since we had totally run out of blue cream based colours we actually did most of the paint job on the pop art zombie using only lipstick and a brush. The intense pigments of the lip stick actually made the look pop a little extra. So take what you have there at home. Sometimes the solution is right there in front of you.

If you like how this pop art zombie came out you might want to take a closer look on our World of Warcraft Murloc tutorial. It’s another perfect example of how to create an epic monster with huge crazy eyes.

    I loooooooooooooooooove this look, but the lack of skin texture consistency bugged me. :/ If you would have just layed down a thin layer of latex soaked cotton on the rest of your exposed skin to kind of tie it all together It would have looked even better.

    I like that you're incorporating NYX into the looks now (was hoping you would after winning the award!) so now I have more ideas how to use all my NYX things to do sfx stuff! This look reminds me of one that Rick Baker did with the huge eyes, I love it!! Also good idea to use white hair spray for the eyes, so much easier than paint!
