As an entry to @Glitterwolf’s painting Pandemic challenge I figured I’d try something a little different. I printed up this scaled-down nurse from Silent Hill. Plan is to have her with a wall that is flaking away (crackle paint is the intent here) and dirty tile floor. a long time ago (I swore I had it bookmarked but alas...) I found a write-up by an individual who painted up some amazing veiny zombie skin using batting as a mask for the airbrush with the dark bruised colours going on first before adding the skin tone overtop. Since I can’t find the reference, I’m going on trial and error and some fuzzy memory. im going to have to be very careful with the cleaver as it is less than 1mm thick. primed white and her dress was then covered with tape to minimize cleanup later. A good vibrant purple (mix of warcolours Violet 5 and Vallejo game air alien purple). Never planned on painting a zombie purple before. Then I hit it, using some batting that I teased and stretched out with Vallejo game air electric blue. The right, her left, leg turned out better but it’s more splotchy than veiny. I feel for the skin layer I’ll need a finer mesh (more space between) but thicker strands. Will have to play with the batting to see what I can come up with. Thinking of priming up a couple plastic spoons to try this on to see how things turn out before I attack her. Hope to start some work on the base tomorrow night. Thanks for looking.
