Update!!! 15/01/2008 on page 11
I’m finally getting to post her now. I started her mid last year and put her on hold to do
my Female Vampire Bust. I actually borrowed from her to create the Female Vampire.
The main idea I have with her is not to go for a full out gore shock effect- though she
surely will have blood on her and a wound or two. What I mean is she won’t have
her intestines wrapped around her ankles or anything that horrific (I’ll leave that for
I ultimately set out to portray a more macabre feeilng with her- I’m kinda thinking of
the spooky girl from the Ring, except more gory zombie than ghost-like. I also still wanted
her to be relatively attractive and fresh and not too far gone down the path of decay.
I initially created a couple of wound ideas in ZBrush and then went with an ankle
wound exposing bone and flesh (you can see an early untextured version on my
website). But, I decided that she was going to be quite dirty, as if having been
shuffeling around in the mud and dirt. So at the end of the day the ankle wound would
kinda be covered up with muck and be pointless. So I’ll most likely go with my original
idea of bite wounds/marks on her arm/s.
I doubt that any of her private bits will be exposed at the end. Though she might have
some of her nighty torn in areas (which I loosely experimented with last year).
Most of the base modeling and texturing is done. All that’s really left to do to is
zombify her… and create her base/diorama… and of course rig her.
I thought I’d post her in a relatively clean state before messing her up. I should
start zombifying her this week, and will post updates as I do so… wires to come later.
I’m aiming at around 10k in the triangle department, so she still needs to be optimised.
I’ll most likely kill off most of the poly’s under the nighty… but that’s for later…
…on to the images (as usual, they are quite large).
Please let me know if the formatting of the above text is messed. I had a few problems trying to arrange
it so that it wouldn’t trail off the page because of the large images.
