percy wakes up

by sven at 1:14 am

Tonight I got set up and did some motion tests with the new puppet, Percy.

In my opinion, the first clip was the best. The eyes more than anything else make Percy live.

In the second clip, I wanted Percy to smack himself on the head -- as if to say, "What was I thinking?!"

...And, of course, I had to try a walk cycle. Trying to make things a little more interesting, I dressed up the set a bit with stuff I got from Loose Ends back in January, and had the camera shoot from above.


After all the effort that went into making this puppet, it's hard not to be a little disappointed as I discover design flaws. Still, the point is to learn -- and I can't complain on that account. I learned a helluva lot making this guy.
