Had some generous help from Tennessee Reid Norton
and Rob Ronning
this week- resulting in my first foam latex test casting of Brawl Magnet. This was cast over a simple wire armature with no finger or face articulation- a quick run to test the mold. He will serve as a paint test model and a lighting stand-in when complete. It is so fun to see him in positive form again. I've been posing him out a little and it is getting me really excited to animate again. Brawl Magnet is going to have a ton of personality!
Within a couple of weeks I should have the hero casting with the full-on ball and socket armature! I'll try and shoot a little behind the scenes video of the armature setup and foam process.
