Practicing Sculpting


Lately I've been practicing my sculpting for about an hour, trying different looking heads etc.  The goal is to just develop my techniques and try to get something that looks right to me.  The lips are the hardest things for me to do and so I've been focusing on that.  Of course it'd be nice to have a model and I'll work on that later.
The first piece is of just a regular guy.  The second piece is of an elf warrior type.  I used glass beads for eyes on the second one.

Voice Sync Test


Well I spent veterens day working on a very short voice sync project.  I made about 10 different mouths for a clay head I put together.  I pulled the mouth photos from JLypSync and tried to match them as best as I could.
The little man says, "I sit here...looking out my window...wondering...when will the rain come?"
When I was shooting it I didn't have the same lighting throughout the test and I also found out that the camera had moved on the last line.  I didn't feel like doing it again so here it is, as posted on youtube.

So here's a photo of Miguel the armature. I'm going to work on a story board for the trailer and see how that pans out.
