Not familiar with the source material, but it looks great. Quite a disturbing base, but it looks fantastic! The shade of blue you used for the skin tone looks great, as do the rips in clothing. Very nice job!

One of the most disgusting things I've seen in a long time, yet I can't take my eyes off it. Amazing.

Was the drool part of the original bust? Or a Filmy-added accessory? Very nice.  :D

A bit too realistic.  I can see some people being shock'n'awed by the gore.

Don't know if you've seen Dreams by Kurosawa, there's a blue soldier in there too (this reminds me of that).

Did you use fishing line and white glue for the drool? very beautiful work. I can't stop looking at the way you painted the guts. Even the veins look realistic. Just asking, but do you plan on painting any mecha in the near future? Awesome job man!

That's cool. Love zombies. I really like the blood and brain splats on the backpack. the blue is a little too blue for me, but the finish and textures are very well done, as always.
I wonder about the guy that can sit through a David Lynch movie and say, "I saw that coming."

Oh god... :sick:
That's reeeeally realistic looking.
Disgusting and fantastic.
Great attention  to details, like the brain splattered on the backpack.
Your flesh/guts/blood tones are dead-on.
Was the card and the pack of smoke a part of the kit or did you add them?

Wow, Filmy, when they told you to stop looking for boobs and start looking for brains, I don't think this is what they meant... ;)

This is, as usual, some great work. I agree that the blue is too blue, but maybe that helps because everything else is way too realistic. I wonder if real-looking dead gray flesh might have been too much.

Alos like the card and the lucky strikes. They really are lucky. Look, no bullet holes in the entire pack.

Well, I did put a warning in the title!   :razz: :razz: :razz:

Funaka, you are hilarious!  That was awesome.   :lol:

I intentionally did a lighter blue skin tone, and for a couple of reasons.  The comic itself is done in very dark tones (the story happens at night) and I wanted to use a brighter, more cheery palatte of colors overall.  I also wanted to lighten the mood a bit because of the realism of the rest of the sculpt - kinda like "see, this isn't really a dude with his brains blown out!  Its a zombie from the jungles of Viet Nam!"

The drool is an add-on that I did to replicate the cover.  I stretched some sprue from the windshield tree of a Tamiya motorcycle kit over a flame until I got a really thin pull.  I drilled a hole in Grinder's teeth and put a piece from the hole to his lip, then attached a piece hanging down from his lip.  I mixed up some five minute epoxy and tinted it with Tamiya clear yellow plus one drop of Tamiya clear orange and then carefully covered the clear sprue all the way around.

The cigs and playing card I did in Photoshop.  I found a picture of an old-school pack of Luckies on the interweb.  Unfortunately it was only the face of the pack - most of the images were in 3/4 view so I couldn't get a flat shot of all sides of the pack.   I took the best image I could find and laid it out in plan view, then I created the sides, bottom, and top using the shape tool.  I filled the sections and added the red stripes, text, and graphics to match my reference material.  I then reduced everything to 1/4 scale, printed it on an ink jet, cut 'em out and attached 'em with good old Elmer's white glue.

Glad you like him, err, sort of, and I hope you didn't lose your lunch!

Next time pay attention when I warn you!   :lol:
