The SyFy Network’s original series FACE OFF, which presents special effects makeup artists competing against one another in their craft, continues to amaze.  This week, the behind-the-scenes look focused on the morbid.  The initial challenge was to create a realistic blood mixture, with each contestant being judged on how realistic it looked on a wall, on fabric and on glass.  The second challenge of the night required the creation of zombies.

There were various different takes on the undead, putting their creativity on display.  After creating their initial concepts, the contestants were forced to consider how their design would hold up under conditions put in place – detouring some of the designs and having almost no effect on others.  Shown below are the official photos from the FACE OFF series for the different zombies created by the contestants, followed with a poll to let you voice your opinion.

Here is the official description of what the series is all about, according to SyFy network:

Face Off is a competition/elimination series exploring the world of special-effects make-up artists and the unlimited imagination that allows them to create amazing works of living art. The contestants are tasked with elaborate feature challenges including executing full body paint make up on models and creating their own horror villain. Not only will the show incorporate effects make-up, it will include a wide range of skill sets including prosthetics, 3-D design, sculpting, eye enhancers, casting and molding. Each episode involves incredible reveals of the competitors’ finished work, and the drama of one contestant being sent home by the panel of expert and celebrity judges. It all culminates in one winner and one grand prize that will launch a career.

To determine who emerges victorious, Syfy has signed three-time Academy Award winner Ve Neill (Pirates of the Caribbean, Edward Scissorhands) and Hollywood veterans Glenn Hetrick (Heroes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The X-Files) and Patrick Tatopoulos (Underworld, Independence Day, Resident Evil: Extinction) as Face Off’s judges.
