Whoah dude... that looks AWESOME!!!!

She could almost be the sister of Harryhausen's Medusa. I can just picture her with the hair writhing... a bit nightmarish (especially to animate, I think!)

Yes, it is going to be an animation nightmare for the quick underwater shots of her, but the majority of the short, she will be on land crawling after the "bait", so her hair will have to have a limp, wet look...should be easier to deal with...

I thought she ended up looking a bit like the first slayer from the Buffy dream episode :) I think she especially will after I add the fabric...

...As I think about it, animating that hair might not be quite so difficult after all. If Jenny's underwater, it's not going to be writhing wildly -- mostly it will be suspended, drifting very slowly, moving with the current of the water. Or floating in the last direction that Jenny tugged it towards.

...Sort of like outer space: still until acted upon by a force, and then continuing to move in that direction until forcibly stopped.

...exactly!...i have a few movie scenes in my mind as reference (the end of WhatLiesBeneath mostly) and i think i can pull it off...with a lot of work and practice obviously...one of her underwater shots is going to be particularly difficult, but i'll post about it in the blog eventually...
