I think your puppets look absolutely amazing! Would love to know more about the process of how you're making the faces move..just looks great! Would also like to see more of your scuplting! do you have your own website?
well that sounds complicated but complicated is often worth it and I am always over ambitious! what are the tubes made of, are these plastic tubes?
The pantyhose guy was made from a tutorial on the Stopmotion handbook website. he's not meant as a puppet so he doesn't move at all really (he is posably). He has wire armature inside, polymorph on the limbs and bits you don't want to move and then wadding and pantyhose over that all sewn on.
I would like to do something that looks the same style as Freya the marionette but not so much fuss. I want something where I can produce the bodies quickly but the head and hands and detailed stuff take up more time (as you won't see the body once dressed anyway). At the moment she's too heavy as she is polymorph and hard foam inside. I would like to do a similar version but without strings, with the rod / peg at the back of the head and back of the elbow like bunraku style. It sounds like wood is the way to go but I hoped there was standard way with pictures /tutorial out there for me to follow!
I would like to sell my creations online and eventually in a real life shop.. will be a long time to get to get that far though!
thanks for the comment :) Yes Freya is pic 11 on my page. I forget that if you're on a not so big monitor that you can't actually see she's my background pic as well! She's a prototype and the first ever marionette I made. Yes, that makes sense about the head rod. Thanks!
