Finally, I reveal my secret project! This is what these little concept sketches [link]
No real storyline, just a brief collage of Chipper's life-style and his ambitions. XD
This fuzzy stuffed animal I designed took me two frigging years
to finish making; he's made out of latex with foam, fluff and wire inside him, fur is glued and sewn onto him, and his horns and claws are made of sculpyIII.
For the animation itself; only took two days to take all the photos and do some filming, the actual editing and getting all the video and music/sound together took just this week. All finished before the 'supposed' end of the world (which it wasn't).
Unfortunately Chipper actually has pretty limited wire movement especially in his legs (he can't sit down hardly) which is an issue I'll have to address in future toy projects which I already have planned for 2013 along side my werewolf project.
Yeah I know the camera quality isn't great (I need a bigger and better camera really) and I accidentally left hair-brushes on the sofa in some shots which I didn't have the time nor patience to edit out, but it's not bad for a little pet project. it's only a little add-on to my university portfolio next year.
I don't think this is bad for my second attempt at stop-motion, but please keep any negative comments about the quality to yourself; any offensive comments will be hidden and the commenter will be blocked.
If anybody has trouble seeing in on DA, it's also on my youtube account too: [link]
