I decided to go with replacement heads for the characters. The characters in tomato Soup were made this way and I've found that its the quickest and easiest method when there isn't alot of different expressions needed. Replacement heads also cancel out the need to smooth out any joins in post production if using replacement face pieces like in Coraline.
The first step is to sculpt the two characters heads, for this I used
a dark grey Super Sculpey. Sculpey is a modelling clay which can be
baked in the oven to harden it.
Looks like this will be a picture heavy post!
Phew, anyway Ill try get the next post up soon, thanks for reading!!
