Jenny Sculpt, Update and Lighting Tests
'Jenny Greenteeth' Lighting/FX Tests on Vimeo
I'm about to get back to work on my Jenny sculpt, the official final clay Jenny which will be molded and cast in foam latex. I've decided to mold/cast only the body, I will use the rubber latex heads that I've been using, or if possible I'll cast a foam version of the head from the original plaster mold for Jenny one, the boobless wonder...in any case, I'll be casting by the end of February, as my foam supply expires around March...today I unbagged her, cleaned her up a bit, got my table all set up, my tools ready to go, and then did a few live-action lighting tests, like I did with the Tree Beast a couple of months ago...I used that most recent painting as a backdrop, its been sitting on the easel untouched until now, and its beautiful here....I'm thinking after seeing this that all of the underwater shots should be 'painterly', with layers of painted backdrops instead of an actual set? Sometimes there are so many options that my mind reels.....how can I possibly test them all out? ugh.....anyway, this test has quite a bit of color manipulation obviously, and the last segment has a few of the water effects I plan to experiment with in post, some bubbles, a shimmery water surface, and wavy effects. I cannot wait to get this old girl movin' :)
The music here is Rachmaninoff's 'Isle of the Dead', one of my favorite classical tracks.
