When I saw this challenge I knew right away that a typical skyline simply just won't do. Gel II is known for being innovative and thinking outside of the box, so I wanted to reflect that. It just so happened that this past weekend was the premiere of The Walking Dead, and I am a huge fan! So I chose Atlanta, Georgia, and decided to give this skyline a gorey spin! Imagine this souvenir globe being purchased and left behind in the post-apocalyptic world, broken by a zombie coming out of the ground with Rick Grimes aiming to serve and protect! THAT, my friends is my interpretation of this skyline challenge. I think this piece turned out GORE-TASTICALLY, and I hope you like it!

Ahh, the post apocalyptic Atlanta City....I used this photo as my inspiration for the piece

To build the base of the globe, I measured the size according to the tips and created a circular base using builder gel. I then apply a dark grey and some glitter of course!

Globe Assembly: After securing each building, I added colour details with acrylic paint. Using acrylic, I sculpted tiny little cars to reflect the post apocalyptic traffic. Using a combination of flocking Powder and green crushed shells, i made the hedges on the side of the highway.

Tips: I wanted this to look grossly realistic. So I glued the tips together and coloured them brown using the dry brush technique. I then sponged on a seafoam green colour. Prior to curing, I dab on my premixed flocking powder. Cure for 30 seconds under LED light. OMG GRASS!

Zombie hand: Starting with using tin foil as mould, I sculpted the zombie's hand. using acrylic paint, I painted on the deteriorating skin/scar, and added additional acrylic around the wound to give that extra dimension. Finish off the hand with adding fingers and final blood splattering details

Next we have the finishing touches. Using a balloon, I poured gel all over it to get that round sphere shape to imitate the globe. I then cut up the sphere. Here you can also see a sculpted Rick Grimes, Welcome to Atlanta sign and the broken backdrop for the globe.
