    Werewolves

    I'm planning on doing a short video, similar in form to my Oldroid vid, which will be a werewolf transformation sequence.

    I want to have a slightly different take on it to the usual 'man transforms into wolf' idea and so I've come up with the idea of the werewolf forming on the inside of the man and then bursting out.

    That idea's certainly been done before, but much less than the more traditional take and I've certainly never seen a film/vid with it.

    The plan is to make a series of rubber puppets to film the sequence. It's going to involve an old guy (they're more fun to sculpt) who starts convulsing and his body rippling. The camera then pushes inside him to show a werewolf embryo growing.

    This is fairly ambitious when you consider the amount of puppets it might need, so I'm concentrating on the embryo first and if that goes well I'll broaden it out to do the old man and his werewolf parasite.

    I'm in the very early stages and I'm trying to work out how a deformed wolf/man embryo might look!

    Here're some quick sketches I'm doing before I start working on the sculpt proper.

    This one kinda looks abit like a demented fox and is abit too comic for my tastes - I want disturbing ;0)

    These are both disturbing! This sounds like a large project. Can't wait to see it!

    Hi DP

    This sounds like a great idea, and very ambitous but I cant wait to see this progress.

    I think the bottom pics are the most disturbing,but both look good.

    Cant wait to see more

    Take care

    Few more, variation on a theme really. I think whenever I try and do a wolf like face it starts looking abit comic book. Might be abit more disturbing if I go with a more human looking face perhaps....

    Awesome! Looking forward to more of your stopmotioning!

    The first head kind of looks more piglike than wolflike....almost like a pig man with Down's syndrome (sorry! that's just what I thought when I looked at it!). And the second does look a bit cartoony. But that last one you posted--ugh! Extremely disturbing! I'm expecting the head to explode any second...

    More! More! XD

    Thanks dude! Glad you find them disturbing ;0) Maybe I can put an air bladder in the head so that it swells......!

    Done a few more, think I'm homing in on the look; basically massive head, human face, big ear, messed up teeth ;0)

    I have a few weeks off work coming up and so will be locking myself in a darkened room with a ton of clay and plaster ;0)

    Thanks for everyone's comments so far. The plan is going to be to do two casts of this in rubber - one full body with some articulation so it can flex and writhe about - air bladders in the head and stomach I think so that it can swell ;0)

    The other cast will be just the head and upper body with some facial movement including an eye that can open and look about.

    The whole thing'll be stuck in a condom with a ton of goo and blood. Wahahahaha.

    Anyway, first things first, here's the sculpt. I'm doing it in chavant. I've previously made fibre glass moulds of chavant sculptures but cleaning the moulds out is a nightmare as chavant sticks to fibre glass.

    I discovered quite by accident that chavant doesn't stick to plaster though so I'm going to make plaster moulds of this and then cast it in platsil as that also won't stick to plaster. Also means I don't have to gas myself using the fibre glass! Awesome ;0)

    Only been working on this for 2-3 hours so this is early days still.

    Draw inspiration. I believe the photos are appropriate material.
    Also, you are a genius. Much appreciated.

    Ah thanks dude, those'll be useful.

    Here's a quick vid of the embryo sculpt. I'm also working on a 1/6 scale full body sculpt of the full grown werewolf which will be cast in rubber as a stop motion animation puppet. I'm also doing a 1/3 scale head and shoulders which'll be an articulated puppet. Pics soon!

    Here're a few more sculpts. The first will be cast as a stop motion animation puppet. I cheated slightly and poured some melted chavant into a mold from a previous puppet then modified the sculpt ;0)

    The second is a 2/3 scale head. This will also be a puppet. I'm trying to do something 'different' with this, that's proving harder than I thought though as people have obviously been doing werewolves for years.

    I've tried to pull the nose back towards the head but suggest 'wolfiness' by the shape of the upper lip and snout. What do people think? Does it look much like a wolf? It kinda does from some angles I think, but then also abit demonic from others. I'm trying to decide whether that matters or not! You'll have to imagine the hair that will be added at a later stage.
