My third and final little version of Jessica Rabbit. These were such fun to work on, I just kept rolling into the next version of the sculpt as I finished the last. I love the animated Roger Rabbit shorts, and always wished there had been more.

Remember, only you can prevent forest fires....and ALWAYS bring your high heels when you go out hiking. :)

Sculpted in wax, cast into resin and painted in acrylic.

I don't personally like the way that there's the indented line between her hair, shirt, and shoes and her skin, but it does make it look like an official piece. Excellently done!!!

There she is!! Did you actually put a little light source near the fire for the photos? Your Jessicas are just amazing, you mix the realism of the clothing folds and the treetrunk really well with her super exaggerated cartoony look. No idea how you sculpted and casted these teeny tiny heels, there has to be a wire inside right?

:D Thank you so much, I really had fun with these, and I'm glad you like them! I tend to bounce light off the sides of sculptures to show some of the dimension of it better. I just used some little warm LED lights to make it seem a bit like the fire is glowing on her. I should make some up with little LED lights within the fire. I know they use those on toys, so it seems lie I could do it with this...hiding battery compartments is the toughest thing.
The heels actually aren't so bad, surprisingly. I expected them to be problematic. With wax, they can be brittle and break while working on it all, but once the mold was made, they cast up with no problems.  The toughest thing with Jessica is getting her to stand, because her ridiculous body is so top heavy and the tiny feet never support her. I can't imagine how much harder it would be if these were sculpted large. I'd need to have pit metal pegs running through each leg.

"Top heavy" is a great way of putting it :'D Im really surprised the little wax Jessica stands on the wax tree trunk without breaking her legs somehow. I supposed if you picked the wax figure up by the base and shaked it a little she would break tho right?

You can buy fake candles real cheap and they usually have a little LED with flickering "realistic" light and a battery pack + switch inside that you could use for a project like that :) Tho like you said, last time i tried it i thought it was pretty difficult to hide the battery and cables inside the small figure without it having a huge base. It would be cool to see you do something like that tho because you're so good with resin and the light could create some really neat effects!

Yes, you're right, she was fragile on the base. I had a little metal peg in her foot down into the tree trunk, and it helped. I cast her with that peg, so it keys into the trunk on the final and I epoxied the feet down to the base....That's strong stuff, she she's holding well! The one that was hard was the Nurse version.

Yes, those fake candles are something I was thinking about! Thanks for the recommendation. I think once I make something large enough to conceal the packs, I'll be applying those kinds of things to some sculptures. I know it can be done fairly small, as toy companies pull it off, so I just need to do some research. I like the large LED packs they make with circuit boards that have timer functions so you can leave it on and have it come on every night....Pretty fun... I still may try to do a version of my Maynard bust with lighting effects, because it almost worked.
