He loves his new pants.
Finished Campfire Boy (Benjamin? Gregory?) puppet!
I am super happy with how he turned out... I can't wait to make him come alive.
But first... I must finish the set:

"Campfire" Puppet progress and more!

Everything's going pretty well! But it's all about to pick up speed. Almost finished with the puppet, and have begun work on the set and props.
Mr. Campfire boy (name?) checking out his 3 resin skulls.

Roughed out body and heads. Three replacement heads: Happy, Sad/confused, and Mad. In this picture they're all pretty happy. It's about time for some latex skin and mini-clothes!

My friend Courtney is working on sewing the mini-flannel shirt and pants. She's got some skills!
Two 2' by 4' wooden floor pieces for the set, along with the construction of the tent.

This project is already effecting my home-life:
Beginning to make my bedroom my stop motion studio... !

"Campfire" Progress: Puppet.

I am happy how the puppet's coming together. This little guy is my first none-clay full character I've created, and so far I'm happy with how he's coming along. It's going to be nice not having to smooth out the clay each frame on this one!
3 resin skull molds.
Final armature.
What good buddies.

Adding some foam to him. Foam sculpting fun.
