Zombie Snowmen

Postby nosferatu » Wed Jan 13, 2010 3:18 pm

Given the worldwide wintry conditions and the fact that I seem to have been building snowmen constantly since mid December, I thought I'd try and track down a zombie snowman. This is the best I could find:

Phew, I made it to sunrise and killed 212 zombie snowmen in the process. It got a little hectic at the end there!

I like the use of "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" music for this. I've always thought it was a pretty piece of music, but also potentially very creepy in the right setting.

Those zombie snowmen were pretty ugly. I've had my share of encounters with similar beasts....

That was the Christmas card I printed and sent to family and friends in 2008.

I remember that card from last year!

Those snowmen are funny. We are due more snow on Wednesday so I may use some of those ideas. We used green food colouring and used a water sprayer on our snowmen.

The first one looked as if he had been weed on by a giant dog. After adding a lot more food colouring, the other one looked like it had gangrene. Not quite the effect we were trying to achieve.

I first made a basic snowman shape, then began to scrape away from it gradually, sculpting the shapes I wanted. I used a pointy spoon to dig away the excess snow (making gaps between the ribs, eye sockets, etc).

Once the shapes were close to what I wanted, I sprayed some cold water on the snow, using a water bottle with a trigger that sprays a mist. Wetting the snow like this helped it pack together tighter, for more detailed fine-tuning sculpting. It also allowed the snow to look smoother, and when the water froze, it was pretty strong.

This was all done with experimentation, but I bet I could do something really crazy and detailed if I put my mind to it.
