I'm doing the animation in two sections, the mother and the baby. Since the baby's part is shorter I thought I'd do him first to get him out the way. I've finally gotten around to puppet making and sorting out his animation.
I documented the process as I went to show my progress.
Here's how I've been getting on!
|Starting to build the baby's head with mixed plasticine|
|Here's his finished head, all that's missing are his eyebrows which will be added later|
|Some replacement mouths|
|Building up the baby's body|
There was no need for legs as he would only be shown from waist upwards.
I then built some simple props for the animation:
|Some building block toys|
|A cot for the baby with bee design|
|Here's my final set up, a simple set with a simple puppet ready to animate|
|Here he is, mid shot, in his whole 3 second appearance|
I'll keep you all updated as to whether I succeed or not!
