There’s a lot of zombie stuff out there, and most of it is crap. People like to jump on bandwagons and produce quick tie-ins rather than investing love and effort into their creations. Luckily for you, I’m here to help separate the wheat from the chaff. Check back every Thursday, when I’m going to share the coolest zombie-related creation I can find out there on the web.
This week’s creation, “They Are Coming…” from CD Stone, was another of my favorite from the 16×16 Challenge. It’s a pretty solid build, but my favorite thing about it is that it tells a bit of a story. Outside the house, there’s chaos on the streets as zombies attack and are taken out by survivors, but inside a man is panicked and along. He’s frozen by fear. It’s just a fantastic scene.
This guy is what pushed this creation over the top for me. The way the shot is staged and the expression on his face are both absolutely perfect. Sure, he’s got a big gun and a bandoleer full of shells, but this is not a man who’s confident in his survival.
Outside a survivor takes out one zombie, but several others are right on its heals. It’s hard to win a game of attrition with a horde of zombies.
Finally, here’s a nice cross-section of the build. CD Stone really embraced the destruction theme with a lot of little elements here. I love the torn up floorboards and the sidewalk that’s falling apart. Nicely done. Also, I really like how this photo was taken on top of a notebook. I don’t know why, I just think it looks cool.
Have you seen a great zombie creation out on the web? Are you working on the next great zombie MOC as we speak? Well you had better let us know right away, otherwise we’ll never be able to include it here.
