One creepy little girl...
« on: October 31, 2011, 08:09:26 PM »

Hello fodder of FOD, it's been a while  :smile:

I have recently embarked on a drive to get lots of stuff painted before the xmas hols. Basically, so I can buy new toys in the New Year  :thumbup:

Therefore, I give you my version of Brooke. I wanted to try different things with the skin tones and colour choices so she looks rather different from my other zombie hunters.



I have to say the sculpting on this piece blew my mind - the ejection port on the pistol, the teeth of the knife blade and Brooke's hair were some of the insane detail that stood out for me! I used a light palette of paints cos I usually don't and I wanted to push myself.

She creeped me out while working on her. I had to stop several times. But she's finished now and I'm pretty pleased - hope you like her! Now she's getting locked away cos I'm paranoid  :paranoid:

Well done, she does look really creepy.

The face looks very good, and I like what you've done with her coat.

Thanks, guys, I really appreciate that!

I need to work on my photographs though, I think they're a bit too complimentary  :P

I like the greyish skin, like shes half way gone :)
“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents… some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age.”

Dress and hair both look smooth and nice. Rich too. The boots sort of get lost in the base colors, though that might be exagerated by the lighting in the photo.  Solid work. :)
