This is a great idea: a pity someone else had the same idea but... I might have liked thelight to be less muted.

good idea, shame it doesn't work...

Very cool idea. I think the white balance is a little off and lighting could be improved.

I like the setup and the lighting here. It's also a clever idea. Could do without the hair on the head though.

Nice hair. Another fun concept. Lighting looks fairly blanced here. ALmost was able to get the two of them lined up.but still a slight distraction. nice job overall.
