This is old, but here are some pictures of my very first puppet in PaPO. It’s a psychic snake!
For my 3-D zoetrope assignment, I tried to do a simple transformation animation. I used Sculpey to create figures that turned from a busty torso into balloons that float away. Originally, I was going to include a face and head on my torso, but in the end, I felt it was more effective to leave them out.
My balloons are a little too high, so it makes it difficult to follow the ascension. I might need to tweak their positions a bit…also I lost a balloon before documenting.
And a video taken by Peter T:
I really enjoyed making a zoetrope and hope to make more in the future!
Woodward the End Table is an elderly, gentlemanly end table who ends up in a love triangle with his long-term friend, Chesterfield (a lounge chair) and Luminaria (a lamp). Despite his name, Woodward is not made of solid wood. He is composed mostly of found cardboard, a shoebox, and some dowels. To control Woodward, I have a simple mechanism that opens his drawer when he talks!
