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.
