The second episode in the Zombicide: Black Plague painting series is now live and features the abomination.
Taking the approach used for the regular zombies in Episode 1 as a starting point, this video then focuses on the basics of highlighting to bring about a more dramatic level of contrast which will prepare us well for tackling the necromancer and heroes!
The reference shots referred to in the video can be found here and will hopefully be useful to anyone unsure of where to place their highlights.
The video also contains plenty of newly-composed music; some of which re-uses the 15th Century song “L’homme armé” (“The Armed Man”), along with the even older English round “Sumer is Icumen In” (loosely translated as “Summer has arrived”).
Most of the music is however entirely original and includes brooding Baroque-style guitar passages (as heard at the beginning of the skin highlighting section) as well as more upbeat, modal sections featuring the hurdy-gurdy and the evocative, traditional Hungarian string instrument – the gadulka (as heard in the trouser highlighting section).
I hope you enjoy watching the video as much as I enjoyed making it!
