This is an articulated stop motion animation puppet for use in my latest animation endeavour A Tale from the Endless Stair.
The concept was to create a creature with a sinister look but which still had a slightly 'cute' aspect to it. I wanted the sculpt to also look a little unsettling.
This started off as sculpture in super sculpey and was then cast in silicon over a posable metal armature.
Here's an animation test.
And here's a trailer for the animation. The full film can be viewed here.
An articulated puppet of the head section was also being created for use in close-up shots. Click on the pic for further details.
