Raw green screen shot of Sol. We had the shirts especially made. I just placed tracking markers on with a Sharpie to keep the head in place. Worked pretty well!

First test scene with the heads applied. Still not refined yet.

The lighting was crucial when shooting the green screen. Too much shadow and the effect turned the face too contrasty and you couldn't control it. Not enough light modelling resulted in a completely flat face with no contours. They ended up not having noses.
sob early test 3
Clearly not enough contrast and the skin is taking on a yellow appearance.

I really liked this look but the producer wanted it more toony. I felt at times we went too far.
