OUCH!!!

This image was rather painful to draw...just thinking about what poor Switch went through...ow! But, it's a movie! I never really liked the reclining Switch from an earlier post. The costume was silly and she looked rather comfy. I've decided to steal (er) pay an homage to Apocalypse Now and have her emerge, standing (taller than Gwen) from shadows - just as Brando did. We won't see as much of her as appears in this image, but we'll get enough glimpses to understand her pain.

I guess this is the involved make-up job you mentioned. Good luck with that, it don't look easy.

No...but megan is a trooper and actually quite excited about it. Thing is, she has a very dark tan and I want her skin to look very pale. The arm is going to be uncomfortable for her as she'll have to keep it tucked behind her back.

Sounds like you'll need to do a full body foundation job on her to get rid of that tan. Film making can be so tough.

Who's the perve now?!?! I imagine our make up girl will do that. I am merely applying the scars and wounds and blood.

Looks like a nice design,I hope you hide her arm better than they did with Carl Weathers one in Predator when it gets shot off and you can see his real one sticking down the back of his pants ! :)

How you going to do the other arm with the sticks on and hide her hand ?

It's all to be done with really sharp blades and duct tape! No, actually she is going to be in a really dark cave and we'll have the real arm black and the fake stump won't be lit that bright. We'll do something simular for the twig hand for the establishing shot when she walks out of the darkness. Close ups of the twig hand, then, will be a prosthetic.

First of all I am not that tan. And secondly michael the only one doing a full body foundation job will be me!! Sorry about your luck!! And thanks allen for your confidence in me. But if you come near me with razor blades and
duct tape... well just imagine how your poor neighbor kid looks like... My precious...
