New Puppet; Working Progress
A new puppet! Headless, handless and footless at the moment...
Inside the body is a simple wire armature to allow the limbs to bend, in case I decide to try and animate the puppet.
I hope to add a lot more detail to the body, like a pocket watch to make it more interesting!
The body turned out to be a bit of an odd shape; from the side view it's a bit like Lurch from the Addams family! But I think it adds more character! :D
Also the shirt collar is really high so it's head is going to be really weird looking!!
I was originally going to make a new head for this puppet but I've decided to re-use one I already have...who was never given a body!
I think the expression works really well with the sort of personality I want the puppet to have.
Next steps: Attach the head and give him some hands an feet the poor sod..
I'm going to come up with some concept sketches for an illustration; I really want to create a small set to photograph him in made from old, found objects so will look into that.
After that I might try a bit of animation :)
