    I've just looked at some pictures and I think they're the same - aren't Raffa and Ben Komets mates? - if so that would suggest Ben and Forged Monkey (Raffa) are using the same bits.

    That would indeed make sense.

    I had figured they probably were familiar with each other. I didnt know forged monkey was Raffa.

    Sorry about hijacking the thread a bit with nothing useful to say.

    Has some good ideas in it for a beginner, I don't think that you would get much out of it though.

    There is quite an interesting wet blend thing Ben does on the modelling sand, and I discovered accelerant.

    What I have seen so far wouldnt help you that much though. Your base is a similar standard to what he produces on here, its just ideas really.

    I was asked if I could take a picture with some scale, so here it is. No progress today though, but there's always tomorrow ;)

    BLUE!!!! i like blue :p its quite a saturated blue so id be tempted to neutralise the shadows by adding orange to your blue for the deep bits. gonna be a very interesting piece!

    Yikes! Big project - big photos :eek: Just 'cos you have given us extreme close-ups, just noticed some gribbly stuff in the crook of his arm that will need a tidy up before you paint his skin. Otherwise, I'm liking it so far. Nice use of blue with his skin tone and I look forward to seeing it after more work :)

    I'm away with work at the moment and took the snaps at 5:20 this morning on my phone, didnt expect them to be quite so big!

    I was going to try for black into the extreme shadows rather than more blue, plus I wanted to add some black veins showing through. But yep, at the moment too saturated really. Should be fun though.

    Erm, Zombie! Paint it like peeling skin. I'd rather that than have a zombie look like he's just come out from an "Oil of Olay" ad.:laugh

    And what is it with zombies being so scary? Mostly they shuffle around at speeds most of us could quite easily walk away from. Now if they were as fast as Bolt, that'd be frightening!:mask;)

    Omg! I'm such a dufus! I hadn't twigged he was a zombie at all LOL Not even the giant sized pictures of his guts hanging out and him chewing a leg were a giveaway :rolleyes:

    I think the world war Z film/book gives the zombies a little more speed than the standard shuffle ;)

    Wow, those pictures are way big, now I'm home I can see exactly what you're talking about. Not bad considering it was done on my phone, the blue is a little less saturated irl, but I see what you mean Chris.

    Toosh, rule No. 2: double tap. (Zombie land reference - double check before moving on)
