I was debating posting this since there was already a zombie done for the V-Day challenge, but you can never have too many zombies, right? I figure somebody should represent the bah-humbug crowd for this holiday, lol, so since the other zombie was cute, I figured I'd be a contrary so-and-so and do this one more gruesome... Thus, a zombie ripping his own heart out of his chest to give to you... ::D: I call it "To Hell With From Hell With Love", lol... Better pics possibly forthcoming. (You can't really see the nice blood spatter dripping from the hole, lol. On the other hand, the filmed-over eyes came out better than I thought they would.) Here's a better angle of the heart in his right hand. This is also my first mini for the Resolutionary Painting Challenge for Feb. It's a WizKids Pathfinder zombie from the Undead Horde set I picked up on an impulse to check out the quality of the sculpts for the set. I wasn't impressed - the paid professional who made this guy's chainmail just poked random holes in the surface. Which my completely amateur self did almost just as well on as he did when I rebuilt the shoulders from brownstuff... So about half the "links" in the mail are painted on. (I just put alternating bright swishes and black dots inbetween the existing holes.) Conversion-wise, I lopped off both of the guy's arms, shaved off a fair amount of their area where they conected to the shoulder and pinned them in a new position, sculpted a new set of shoulders for him, then lopped off the left hand and rotated it so it was palm-up. I also sliced off all of the weapons sticking out of the guy, which looked ridiculous. I then drilled the hole in his chest and sculpted the reasonably realistic-looking human heart in his hand. Considering I'd never done one of those before, it came out fairly accurate.
