Making of "Oh, My Domovoi": Simone's Replacement Faces

  • Making of "Oh, My Domovoi": Simone's replacement faces
  • Simone, the main character of the film, had to emote. It took a lot of failed prototypes to figure out the technique, but it finally came together and was not too hard to execute.
  • Still from "Oh, My Domovoi"
  • The head "base" and the faces were all 3D printed on a Formlabs Form2 printer with white resin. After the prints cured magnets were attached to the back of each face and then everything got painted with acrylic paint.
  • Initial sketch for 3D modeling
  • Full body concept sketch
  • Skreenshot of the Maya project with some of the replacement faces
  • freshly printed replacement faces
