Artist Proof Studio: Fat Zombie Mini Bust

Just finished painting up the newest release from Artist Proof Studio, the Fat Zombie Mini bust sculpted by Norman Meyers. It's one Helluva cool little creature study. Solid cast in the signature gray resin from Artist Proof at about 4" tall; so I believe it's in the neighborhood of 1/5 scale.

I enjoy this type of Art, as it's a great opportunity to hone your skills at whipping out fast color studies on a cool design. It's not a full figure kit or a larger scale bust that you must dedicate hours of work on. It's small and simple enough to simply scrape away a small seam line and start painting;
a quick painting fix to knock out after work or just to perpetuate the creative flow.

As I understand it, this bust is loosely based on the full figure Fat Zombie kit Norman sculpted for Artist Proof last year. The bloated visage seems infuriated as it's tissues slip away. Check out the Artist Proof Blog to get more information on this piece and others slated to be released soon.
