WIP - Portrait of a Zombie

Using a different technic I saw in a tutorial somewhere on here..
Need to do some more work on his eyes..
Might do more with the background other than plain black..
This was not an original idea..wish it was..
This was mostly done for practice to try out this new technic..
The character is of a great sculpture done by Thomas Foldberg of whom I am a big fan of..





Done in PSCS2 and Painter 9

At first I couldn't tell his teeth were teeth... thta's probably the only thing.

Really good result. Nice expression on him too.

edit: might be cool to link the scuplpture too. For comparison. www.imageshack.us usually does the trick except in some cases people can't see them... then www.photobucket.com should do it. Both free I believe.

Still looking great
But i noticed that you glazed over the eyes some more in this one. Although that is properly more zombie-like the first image was scarier because you actually got the impression from the eyes that this monster was pretty intelligent - that is lost a bit in the milky-white eyes IMO.

Cool image, you've managed to give it a great sense of 3D form. Maybe it's just the white shirt and implied black suit, but he reminds me strongly of The Gentlemen from the Buffy episode Hush.

Overchord, although the eyes have become more milky, I think the collar and tie make up for the lost intelligence!

On a more sincere note, I like the glossier look, it adds a bit more character to the painting.

Awesome so far, the only critique I had was along the lines of jmBoekestein's regarding the teeth. They could possibly use a bit more distinction in color from the rest of the face.

Great Zombie thus far, keep at it!

beautiful.

my only comment is that the lower face and jaw seem a little flat... maybe try darkening them a touch.
