In the Sepulchre there by the Sea


And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

Edgar Allan Poe 

Zomtober rolls on with the second of Wyrd's aquatic zombies painted in similar colors to last week's contestant. Putting a greenish-blue dress on a blueish-green zombie initially seemed dicey but in the end things pulled together nicely I think. 

Paints/washes used on the skin


 

The sea-creatures-on-the-base theme continues with my tribute to two of the more terrifying figures in today's popular culture.
 


Gary looks on, transfixed in horror.
 

I was trying to set a mood when I started this thing. Guess that's shot to hell. 

Some more pictures and I'll be on my way:

    1. Thank you, sir. Suppressed the urge to introduce a flashier color for the dress. Thought it best to preserve the contrast between the rust and everything else.
