Note to Self – Picture Book

I built Nica and Black Bear to animate but predictable I didn’t have the patience so the project turned into a picture book, same narrative and same words, just a different format.  Greg Kitten did the honours and photographed the frames, just waiting for it to come back from print, some sample pages below.

Horror Short Ident – Barnum Armature

I had this idea ages ago for an E4STING so I built the armature for the character, I went off the idea of doing a Sting so he has evolved into an idea for a possible ident, going to finish him off and have a play with stills and a little animation perhaps.

His fingers have beads in so enable them to have long and skinny joints, I do like his hands.  The head and jaw are a polystyrene ball base, plumbers epoxy and Fimo for the teeth, finished in latex, foam and rough flocking.

I painted him, added fake fur and a hat, cuff and collar.  He has since been defurred a little, the cuff and collar are gone and I’m gonna hand lay some felting fibre instead.
