Randy is one of my zombies from my custom figure line "The Restless." I took a regular 12 inch GI Joe style figure and mangled him up a great deal with a Dremmel tool (When you do this, think of how human teeth would mangle flesh... it keeps things in perspective). I put hands from a Marvel Legends Icons Magneto on him because they are much more expressive than regular toy soldier hands. I sculpted a new head for him from Sculpey. His intestines are sculpted from Sculpey as well. His clothes (just regular Joe or similar sized fashion doll clothes) were distressed in the places where his Dremmel "injuries" were. I painted him and added hair from teddy bear fur to his head. When you paint blood, remember that blood is rarely flat red. There are all kinds of colors to blood, and different wounds from different parts of the body bleed differently. When you paint your zombies, remember that they are usually walking around and the blood should look like it's running down them from top to bottom. The more wounded the zombie is, the more blood he'll be covered in. Soak those clothes too... when you bleed it seeps into any clothing you wear. The key to making really convincing gore is gloss finish. It makes the blood look wet and the wounds look fresh. Use it liberally on exposed muscle and interior organs, and you'll make your friends gag every time!!! If you plan on making zombies collect extensive autopsy and crime scene photographs-- you can never have enough reference pictures for anything you are trying to duplicate!!!
