Fuuji

I made this last year during my job shadow at The Refinery and Luma Animation Studios (It had nothing to do with either company, i was just, like, uber excited and stuff).
It's about 4 hours work over two days, which is my excuse for the super shoddy quality (All the actual animating must have taken me half that time, and was done without any support for the puppets, which is why they slide around and crawl on the floor alot.)

The cuts may seem like genius cinematography, but were in fact the result of the puppet falling over alot and me not being able to repose them correctly. The music is cool. I did not make it.

Anything that remotely resembles snappy editing and timing, is an accident. That is why I love this movie, absolutely everything is random, happy, horrible accidents.



Fire away!

It's so much better, down where it's wetter

Nudibranchs are, in my opinion, the single most awesome animal species in existence. Generally a few millimeters in length, these mollusk-ish beauties are often toxic, and are always brilliantly coloured. I made this nudibranch last week, the glaze crept a little, but it gives an interesting effect. I love mollusks.



Ivan

Pretty much a stop motion puppet, i made Ivan number 2 for a friend. It's always fun making new puppets, even if sewing makes my fingers bleed (Adds colour, not such a hardship). The head is sculpey bake-and-bend, so it's pretty indestructible. Insulated copper wire doesn't really do the best job as an SMA armature, but he can still be posed to your hearts content. I found the second one (depicted below) just a little bit creepy.


Doodling

Seeing as i haven't quite finished high school yet, I'm studying *cough* for exams at the moment. So, in place of productivity, here's some five minute doodles I had to get off my brain-stem.
