Mona Lisa Speaks


In this animation I bring the Mona Lisa to life. She is going to address a very popular question. I also brought in some more of da Vinci's works to fill the space. I have two versions and would very much like to hear your preference and why. So please come back here to comment! Even if it's just after watching one. Click here to go to my website and watch the videos. : )

That is so cool!
I love the way her head nods and her eyes close and her nose almost scrunches. Amazing.
I think I like the close-up version the best.

I like them both but it is easier to see all the facial expressions in the close up. I love her blushing!!

Thank you vickie for letting me know, and thanks for mentioning the blush, as I wasn't sure how visible it would be to the viewer. Your response, lets me know it's working.

It sounds "computery"

Can you animate the motion to a smooth recording of your voice?

I like the close up better because the background is distracting on the other.

How much time did you spend on this? I balk at the simplest picture editing, I applaud your extreme patience.

There aren't any effects on my voice, it wasn't altered in any way, it's straight from the microphone recording. It might just be the accent you hear (I don't really have an Italian accent). Anyway, it took me two days. Thank you for for watching and for your kind words.

I think I prefer the close up, but they are both good. Good work, Gina! :)

Yes rramone, although that is not my natural voice, I live in the US and don't have that accent, just acting! I'm so glad you liked it!

What wonderful work, just amazing, I know nothing about what you had to do to produce this, but it sure brought a smile to my face, and looks very good. As to preferences.....I'm leaning to the close up, I can see her wonderful expressions and movement easier, also find the background distracting in the full version. Depends on what you want your center of interest to be, I guess.
Just my two cents worth..... It's a great piece of work any way!!
Also wanted to Thank you for taking the time and stopping by my place, and your lovely comment on my Lily, that's still a work in progress. Much appreciated.
