First off, if you don’t know who Greg Nicotero is GET OFF THIS SITE.

Now that the riffraff are gone, get ready to watch the KNB EFX wizard create one of the first zombies that you’ll meet in The Walking Dead.

Much like in the comic, one of Rick’s initial encounters with the living dead is of a woman who apparently fell off her bike and broke a leg, left to rot along the side of the road. Nicotero talks a bit about the design (and holy hell, what a design) before treating you to a time-lapse that shows the final product being created over many hours.
