One of the most iconic and memorable scenes from The Walking Dead’s comic run is a moment where Rick – first waking up from his coma – finds a bicycle to ride from the hospital on. However, underneath the bike is a completely ripped apart; completely undead corpse. This isn’t Rick’s first encounter with zombies (referred to as Walkers in the TV show), as he’s almost eaten by some upon first waking up. What’s most important about this zombie is the humanity it shows it Rick. Given away in the Comic-Con trailer, we already know the outcome of this zombie. Want to watch the zombie be created by Special Effects Make-Up Artist Greg Nicotero? Of course you do! Check the video out below!
The first half of the video is Greg Nicotero talking about the design from the comic, how they decided to cast a tall and skinny person for it, and how it took them a total of 3 hours to get the make up on. The second half is a 3 minute time-lapse video of Greg and his FX crew putting the make up on woman.
