Animatic - Check
Reference footage - Check!
Puppets - Okay!
I am now on the puppet fabrication side of things. From here on out it's the real time-consuming stuff for the short, but also the more fun for me, really making it.
The armatures are feeling like they will definitely hold up for this animation. I was fortunate to have the design guidance and help from Dan Field, master puppet fabricator. He has been a huge help.
Overall, it is going well. I'm mostly on schedule, buut that whole schedule plan is more an "idealized" thing... right?
