Sculpting a Zombie Head in Blender 2.54


Sculpting a Zombie Head in Blender 2.54Benjamin Bailey has recently created a video tutorial series titled "Sculpting a Zombie Head in Blender 2.54." With over an hour and a half (1.5 hours) of video instruction, you will learn how to sculpt a basic cube into a human head, create an exposed brain, and paint in tiny skin details onto the mesh with textured sculpting brushes.  The entire series is online and available for free.

Part 1 of the tutorial series:

From Benjamin Bailey:

I created this tutorial series around the Halloween series, but delayed announcing it to BlenderNation until my site was finished.  Now that my online portfolio and resumé is ready, I'm giving you the gift of free zombie brains with the touch of Blender.  Enjoy!

Benjamin Bailey

I am a young creative artist with a dream to conquer the world with my ideas. I love singing, writing, drawing, and modeling in 3D - and I'm ready to put these skills to use.


  1. Maybe Benjamin Bailey should see a head doctor?

    Apparently he gets excited at the subject of zombies and exposed brains so much so that he actually spends time to sculpt a zombie and even put up a tute. It also looks like a zombie is what he wants other people to see rather than a sculpting tute, so sculpting and a tute are just means to deliver the main message that zombies and exposed brains are really an exciting subject.

    This is kind of what all the jewish controlled media around the world is doing. Trying to create an appearance that all the really crazy jewish shit is so classy and cool that every one has to follow.

  2. @i>c>u

    Even if U don't like zombies I C the value of this for, say, producing war movie special effects, especially the supposed side effects of a nuclear fallout. Great work!

  3. well, it may be a wonderful tut( I have not check it due to my net link)

    but, why there are only freaks/monsters/zombies/deadbodies when sculpting technology is shown? Why no author shows us some tuts with beautiful figures/scenes? Is there any female CGer?

  4. Nice, nice!
    But be honest! Does it reflect the possibilities of Blender??
    Compare it with "Zombie-Tuts" from Zbrush and Mudbox.
    I don't need such Blender-Tuts!

  5. Thanks for the fun comments, everyone!

    @i>C>U: Haha, actually, I'm not that big of a fan of zombies. They're pretty boring. But it seemed like a good topic for the Halloween season.

    @Grandmaster B: What do you mean, faked photos? Image-manipulation to make people look like zombies?

    @oyster: Very good point. I will seriously consider taking on the (very hard) task of sculpting a beautiful face/figure. It is considerably easier to make something ugly than to capture divine beauty.

    @Tim, LA: Even though there may be many Zbrush/Mudbox tutorials out there, and even though it's true that you can apply many sculpting techniques to Blender, a tutorial like this is valuable for those looking to sculpt in Blender, but who have no prior experience in sculpting. For those who have never taken the first step and want to create something truly gratifying, and taught specifically for the software application they plan to use.

    Once again, thanks to everyone for the lovely (and funny) comments!
