Rotting Zombie by Marina Krmek

Posted by on


A few months ago I finished school for Movie makeup and special effects so I wanted to share easy but very effective zombie look. I’m still amazed how we can make such cool things with stuff around us, like tissues for creating wounds, red wool for small veins or petroleum jelly with bit of yellow/red paint for inside of the wound etc.

In this tutorial I’ve been using sponges with different density, a toothbrush for splatter effects that create depth and a realistic look. Pay special attention that you don’t use white on zombie face because even the palest skin is never white.
