Welles Baby In Progress

Starting a new short and it's starring a baby Orson Welles!
Haven't quite worked out all the beats of the story -- as of now, all I know is that it'll be a commercial/out-take type deal, based on the classic "Yes Always" recording -- but I figure I'll have it set by the time I finish making the puppet. 

Sculpting the head (which is about 3 inches high) out of plasticine -- using my original sketch and some pics of both young and old Orson as reference.

I'll have more on the way soon -- Next: mold making, and casting, as well as a second puppet.
