Hey everyone, 

 

    I'm trying to re-create this still from King of the Hill as a learning exercise. I attached it below. 

 

    It seems fairly straight forward but I can't seem to get the key to look right. I used a charlie bar and two Dedo 150's for the background and that looked ok but the eyelight kick and the key i'm struggling with. 

 

Thoughts? Diagrams? 

 

Thanks so much!

There is no separate eyelight, the key light is being reflected in his eyes, which is easier when shooting a young face with big eyes and a round face without deep eye sockets.  Judging by the size of the reflection, it's neither a point source or a large soft light, so probably something in-between like a paper lantern.

Thanks so much! That makes a lot of sense.

 

I tried it with a paper lantern and it worked very well. Now just to shape it a bit more and get the shadows looking correct...
