If this is totally out of place in this forum, let me know, and it shall be no more. I posted the pics of this puppet a while back - now you can see her move!
I've managed to finish editting my puppet animations from fall semester and would like to share! This one here was my final for the class and the most frustrating to animate because of the restrictive costume. But, here goes...
The sets are foamcore, paper and balsa. The geisha rat has a twisted aluminum wire body with propoxy neck, feet and hands. I fitted rare earth magnets into the propxy to allow her to pick up props and for the head to pivot on the neck. the head is paperclay with a few coats of gesso.
And for the animation...
Mochi Gone Mad
If anyone doesn't know what mochi is, it's a ball of rice dough that's a traditional Japanese treat. They're yummy!
If anyone has any thoughts, please share! if this goes over well I'll post the other 2 animations.
