I began by painting the skin on both figures with Reaper MSP “Alien Flesh”. Next, I painted the pants on the first figure, and the boots on the other figure, with Reaper MSP “Turkey Brown”. I then reversed that and painted the boots on the first figure and the pants on the second figure with Reaper MSP “Blackened Brown”. After that, I painted the first zombie’s robe with Pathfinder MSP “Urgathea Red”, and the second zombie’s robe with Reaper MSP “Void Blue”.
Next, I painted both their belts with Reaper MSP HD “Umber Brown”. I then painted the left zombie’s beard with Americana Neutral Grey, and the right Zombie’s beard with Americana “Terra Cotta”. While I had the “Terra Cotta” out, I used it to paint the bracelets and belt buckle on the righthand one as well, then went back and used the “Umber Brown” to paint the bracelets on the lefthand one. After that, I used Americana “Antique Gold” to paint their teeth, then used Apple Barrel “Apple Maroon” to paint the open wounds. I also used this color to paint a little gore on their beards and hands.
My next step was to highlight the skin with the base “Alien Flesh”, and then I mixed a little Americana “Dove Grey” in to do lighter highlights. I then mixed a little of the “Apple Maroon” in to highlight the wounds, and hands. Next I used Americana “Buttermilk to highlight the teeth. After that, I used the base “Neutral Grey” to highlight the lefthand zombie’s beard, and then a little Folk Art Gray Green” to do lighter highlights. I worked on the right one’s beard next, highlighting it with the base “Terra Cotta”, and then some Accent “Golden Oxide”.
I then highlighted the pants on the left one, and shoes on the right one, with Folk Art “Teddy Bear Brown”; followed by highlighting the pants on the right ne, and shoes on the left one with Crafter’s Acrylic “Cinnamon Brown”. Next, I highlighted the belts with Reaper MSP “Shield Brown”. After that, I highlighted the robes on the left one with Reaper MSP Bones “Cinnamon Red”, and the robes of the right one with Americana “True Blue”. Lastly, I highlighted the pattern on the blue robe’s cuffs with the base “Antique Gold”. I finished by painting the bases with Ceramcoat “Black”.
I was a bit disappointed that the basic pose on these. It is really simple from a sculpting standpoint, with everything molded close to the body. They lack any dynamic “Zombie-ness”. To be fair, the detail itself is very good though. They were fun to paint and despite the static nature came out looking rather good I think.
