View Full Version : Black and white movie style undead?

25-02-2007, 17:24
Has anyone ever seen an undead army painted up as if it's in a black and white movie? After seeing the original Night of the living dead I just can't help but think it would look amazing but take a huge amount of work.

So I;m curious if anyone has ever seen it done and how well did it turn out?

Why is this in Project Logs? ;)

Sounds like a very ambitious and original idea. Let's have a look at lots(x2) of movie stills from black-and-white horror movies and we get an idea of how it could work *googles away*.

edit: Looks like you need to do very strong black/white contrasts (http://www.sea.fi/foto/night_of_the_living_dead.jpg) (duh ;) ). I think you could lend techniques from people who do very comic-/cell-shading-style miniature painting with minimal transistion between those two colours.
