    So was looking for the Ewoking Dead T-shirt and saw a bootleg figure of wicket and I thought it looked NOTHING like the t-shirt design. So I made my own and will be casting it & painting a few hope you like.

    It's good work but nothing about it really screams "zombie" to me.

    That's a great sculpt. A really awesome interpretation of the 2d art.

    But... the T-shirt art isn't in color anymore than your sculpt is.

    Great sculpting though.

    If you painted it in normal colors it would look like a normal ewok. It needs exposed bones, tattered clothes, a missing eye/nose, guts hanging out - anything to set it apart from something alive.

    The T-shirt doesn't scream "zombies" to me either, it's just black and white ewoks with white eyes. Use some artistic license and zombify it.

    it will when I'm done, I didn't make the shirt it was a lootcrate exclusive shirt. I'm going to add blood and not all zombies have to have bone exposed.

    Very nice looks like the source material to me, looks like a zombie Ewok if you know what an Ewok is supposed to look like.

    I don't understand why a zombie has to had exposed anything if you get bit and turned into a zombie you don't spontaneously pop apart.

    The majority of zombies are usually normal zombies in movies and shows too it costs more money to make bone effects and 3-d zombies.

    Excellent sculpting skills. It looks just like the art. I'm eager to see if his friends join him.

    How do the ones on that shirt look any different from a normal one, besides the coloring?

    MegaMoonMan- I get what you're saying, but zombies don't always have to be all busted up. They're back from the dead. Here that is shown with the white eyes and mangy fur.
    The point here though is that he's just about perfectly replicated the art in three dimensions, which takes a lot of skill and is something that a lot of professional toy sculptors can't manage.

    I'm not saying it isn't excellent sculpting (which it is), I'm just saying the original material doesn't look ay different from a "normal" ewok.

    Then someone comes along and says "looks like a zombie Ewok if you know what an Ewok is supposed to look like", which insinuates I don't know what an Ewok looks like. I'm pretty sure I do. If that shirt wasn't b/w but in normal colors, those would be normal ewoks. And then we get into why bone/guts/gore effects in TV shows cost money and are avoided, and that somehow translates over into not making this one with anything like that, which makes zero sense.

    But it is a very nice ewok sculpt, to be sure. I couldn't do that.

    I think the fur looks suitably mangier than the standard Ewok. Along with the white eyes, that does it for me. I think any further issues should be expressed in a strongly worded letter to the artist of the shirt.

    Pretty cool, but it should be in the Non-TF Customs.

    If I see this Ewok then this Ewok There would be some red flags that would go up in my head not to go near it.

    If you can't tell the difference I think you might be first in a zombie apocalypse to get eaten, or even a rabid animal.

    Oh, we're STILL talking about this. Fine.

    So what is the difference exactly then? What makes one a zombie killer and the other a fun little buddy you would feel comfortable around?

    Not that it matters, I'm not going near any little bear things with spears. When you go in for your hug I think you may be the first person to be gutted by a teddy, regardless of it being undead or not.
