Zombie Analysis 003

Zombies are not imaginary creatures. The concept of zombies was based on actual people whose physical and energy bodies are changed in the way shown in common depictions of zombies.

A talented artist who can see energy can use makeup to duplicate what they see when they look at a zombie.  The examples in this section were created by artists with that talent. 

The makeup on the man in the following picture consists of lines across the rear part of the left side of his face. 


The makeup was not applied in the exact way it is randomly or because of creative inspiration.  While it may be exaggerated for dramatic visual effect, the makeup follows actual changes to the underlying musculature, fat, and skin of the man’s face.

That particular zombie look is not the only way the zombie characteristics in this individual can be represented. Another artist might add more to the makeup , such as highlighting the left side of the mouth to show how it has been changed by the facial shrinkage that caused the cracks in the left side of the face.
