Every outbreak has to start somewhere, so I suppose it's fitting that my first real zombie custom figure is called Patient Zero. He went through multiple painting attempts as I tried to learn a little more about dry brushing to achieve a dirty look that didn't just look sloppy. It's not an easy balance. The skin tone looks a little more "stone" than "rot" than I'd like, but he's really just meant to be the first of many simple scene-fillers to pose against my L4D survivor customs.
Visually he mixes elements of L4D's drab zombie color scheme and The Walking Dead's gritty, white-eyes illustrations.
