Split Tongue Effects – Video Tutorials

Split Tongue 1_640x427Having made a fake tongue for a show last year, I figured it would make a fun tutorial.

So here it is.

Creating a split tongue that is worn is different in that you can’t really glue it like you would a nose or a chin – at best maybe using a denture fixative but I tried that once with some creature teeth, and it really isn’t pleasant to use.

For these tutorials, I made two different tongues – one is a diseased, fungal-infection thing and the other a split/lacerated tongue.  Starting by making a basic, natural looking tongue, it is then pretty straightforward to modify it and create all manner of mouth-related maladies.

I broke it down into two videos, plus did a quicker shortened overview video for those of you in a hurry.  If you want to know more then check out video 1 and video 2 (to be uploaded Wed 20th Nov).

The two longer videos also have a downloadable workbook with pics and info for you to follow along later if you want to have a go yourself.

If you have been following the blog, you will know there has been quite a long time between posts.  This has largely been due to working on the new season of Game Of Thrones, and whilst I do love to be working on big, exciting jobs, it does mean the blog (and you) were sadly left neglected.

So, to remedy this I will be announcing some exciting developments which is going to turn that around – and I will want you to be involved!
