I am a passionate animator and 3D modeler.

Student Project: Post 4

So, this week I have been making a wire octopus arm as a test.  Today I experimented with making a short stop-motion animation with it.  You can see the video below.

I am satisfied with its ability to move without being too flimsy, stiff, or damaging itself.  However, I wish I was able to put the skin on as well.  Unfortunately, Jo Anne’s fabrics is being a bit slow with the delivery of supplies.  For next week I plan on constructing the wire skeleton of the armature to the best of my abilities.  I was originally hoping on having a finished product by next time, but have learned that creating a stop-motion puppet involves more preparation than I had previously thought.

For a closer look into the design of the arm, you can look at the pictures below.
