Now I'd say what was scarier than a Zombie would be a Zombie in his underpants. :)
I'm not really a character person but programs like Poser these days are getting better at letting you take base figures and tweaking face shapes and anatomy etc... So this started as a base figure and I skinnied it up using the modifiers then I took the template texture and made my own for this Zombie, it was then brought into Vue 5 Infinite where I adjusted the textures further. The final pic was rendered in Vue 5 too. The mushrooms were something I made a while back for another job.
