Dayum! That's one majestic, old-growth forest ya got there. The lighting is excellent. And Nola is just perfect. I think I love her.

You've done paintings of Jenny... I can totally see you doing paintings of Nola based on these!

...That last one especially. Great composition. :-D

Paintings, eh? The thought has occurred to me ;)......

I love the lighting too, now if I can just carry these images into an animated shot, maintain the chiarscuro look but with a moving picture, I'll be good to go!

Ahhhh Mike, I always feel a tug at the ole heartstrings when one puppet finds love with another ;) so sweet...Its gonna be hard for you to watch her die, mwuuHAAAAHAAAhaahaahaha >:D

I love your lighting. The last one is frameable.

Wow Jeffery, Does your robot self never sleep, I mean stop to recharge?

The sets and lighting look great. The texture on those trees really captures the lighting well.

The last photo is my favorite too, great composition.

You have got to be having a blast with Nola and this set just taking stills.

Thanks 'anonymous', and Mark, yeah, it is a blast...making me wish I had my pier and underwater lair done, can't wait to photogragh those, and the new Jenny too (whose butt is giving me a world of trouble, nothing looks right....my next step is to print out some b&w photos of the sculpt so far and sketch on top of them)...

Oh, and, yeah....I ain't no robot (hey Mike, how ya doin'?), I just don't have much of a life :) I work, eat, and sleep a little, read before bed, watch a movie here and there (this week it was 'Forgotten Silver' and 'Short Cuts', both incredible....I would love to do a Short Cuts sort of deal in stop-motion, was actually thinking it could be the thing we all collaborate on eventually...we each take a character & setting and interweave stories about them...could be so cool...) anyway, yeah, the rest of the time is spent researching stop-mo and stop-moing...'cause I'm hooked like a fish on a line...
