turning a person into glass or water

Hi,

Just wondering how this was done. I can see the water is painted in the shape etc..but the figure inside it has this translucent quality....
How would you achieve that or is it a 3D render as a base ?
Thanks..

Re: turning a person into glass or water

Looks like a "Poser" figure could have been used - once edges are obtained/defined the prop can be removed, and the water "texture" used to provide mass to the figure, etc.

I realize the above is very summarized in its description, but I am only submitting my opinion of one possible concept application to create a scene like this.

Re: turning a person into glass or water

ok..I think I've kindof found it....for this example..photograph a nude person on a black background in the pose you want, turn picture into black-and-white and then do a "solarize" with an inverted "v" curve.
Then some tweaking and painting water texture....

Personally, I'd go with a displacement map and lighting effects. To get the effect of the OP's pic there'd be quite a lot of pre and post dis map work.
