View Full Version : Critique in zombie head needed :)

10 October 2009, 03:39 PM
Hi there. I'm working on a zombie head and I was hoping for some critique.

I'm thinking about making the throat eaten away with the windpipe sticking out. Also the eyes might need some more work.

Never the less, I'd be happy for some inputs and suggestions on how to make it a little cooler and gross. Or if there's something on the model you don't like. Any input is welcome.

Thanks :)

Maybe some damage to the back of the skull? A gash? A big crater indicating someone hit him over the head, hard. Or maybe just some rotten flesh?

If his face was eaten up by a zombie (wich aligns to the eaten away throat) this one probably lied on his back at the time. And you know, a zombie is kinda rough to you. I'd go for severe scratch marks at the back part of the head, already rotten. Perhaps a cracked skull? And perhaps scratch marks from finger nails on the forehead from when the other zombie hold him down?

But poor Zombie! Will be hard for him to unlive in a zombie world where he has to eat flesh but can't swallow it.

Think about who the person was before they become a zombie; where were they when they were bitten; how come they weren't just eaten? That will give the information on what the zombie should look like, what kind of damage it has sustained, etc. - really without that kind of information your just making one more zombie. For instance a chef that gets turned into a zombie might have a few knives shoved into him.

I really love your model so far but the only problems i have are the back of the head like the others say and the fact his teeth are straighter than mine hehe.

biggestkid: I only meant to show the finished piece from the front, but you made me change my mind, so I tried to make it look like the skull was showing. I don't know if I succeded very well though, hehe..

Riperton: I wish I had had more time to make it, because I really like your suggestions. And yes, poor zombie.. Hehe.. :)

GrogMcGee: If I get the chance to work some more on him sometime, I will definitely do as you say. I like the chef idea. Or maybe he could be a construction worker, with a hammer lodged in his skull... Neat :D

Barracca: Did my best to mess the teeth up a little bit without the "Eddie"-feel (Eddie = Iron Maiden's mascot).

I'm afraid these screens conclude my zombie project :)
The screens have been sent to the employer intended, so I can't change the model now. But I will keep the critique, I've gotten here, in mind till next time I have to make a zombie.

Thanks so much :)
