When did you step back and analyze you work during this project? Yes, after every change I made I always checked my piece all over again and made sure it was what I wanted before I continued. I love zombies and I had a specific dull and lifeless creature in mind and I intended for him to turn out that way or it wouldn't have had the same affect as I wanted.
Did you consider how ideas would work before you tried them? Yes, I made sure that I thought of every possible thing to do before I settled on one. For instance I contemplated over how to do the eyes of the zombie, unsure if I wanted him to be realistic or not, but then I realized I wanted him to seem more dead than alive which requires a bit of both realism and exaggeration. So I settled with a bulging eye and a a good mixture of paint.
Did you ask another student for feedback during your work process? Yes, because I am not the only one at my table who likes zombies and I knew they would have some outstanding feedback to give to me. I also listened to their ideas and tried to incorporate it into my project which turned out nicely actually. I was able to get the opinions of all sorts of people and that helped me to see my piece in a new way wih every suggestion, so I;m grateful they gave me such advice.
Did someone help you understand important information or inspire you? Yes, the people at my table helped me find the right colors for the zombie and helped figure out which texture looked best. The important information they gave me to remember was that zombies are living dead, so they have grimy skin and rough patches and dead parts but they somehow seem alive as well even with all the signs of death. I had to keep this in mind because I didn't want my zombie to look alive and well, but alive and deadly or sick.
