Final Project - Puppet - Henri

Henri is the barman at the speakeasy, and aside from that, he doesn't really do much else. His puppet head was actually the first I made back in November, when I was trying out a new modeling style. I spent quite a lot of time experimenting with different sculpting techniques and he had about 6 different looks before I settled on the final one. His body was made about 6 months later than the head.

 No E.T. You can't phone home, in fact, I'm going to rip your face off and start again.

 At this point you can probably tell that he is violently French...
 His balsa torso was actually made for the Prohibition agent's armature, but was too wide.

 You can't tell from any of these shots, but he has a really long nose...
Test shot of Henri at the bar, he'll never be shown anywhere else and as such has no need for legs, he has a metal strip on the bottom of his puppet that is holding him to a tin can with a magnet. The tin can will always be kept out of shot and the same method will be used for all of the half puppets.
