Hello!

I'm pretty new here but thought I'd say hello. I'm a stop motion animator/model maker trying to work my way in to industry or get myself to a point of being able to freelance full time.

I work mainly in plasticine but would like to move over to silicone/latex at some point.

I've attached a few snaps of my models. Any feedback would be much appreciated! You can see more on my Instagram page @dr_designasaur if you're interested.

Fun monsters.  Looking forward to seeing more.

Wow, cool models! Are they articulated or rigged in some way? They are great regardless, just having a curious!

Thanks Adam!



I sometimes use wire but a lot of the time they're just plasticine. I really ought to start working with armatures more!

Nice models man! I'm wondering did you take any academic course or are you self taught?

- Thanks! Self taught.

Nice work, love the monster from the center. Can you animate those guys without an armature?


Thank you! These guys weren't really animated that much but were surprisingly steady on their feet without armatures. You can see the film Big Bad Monsters at www.vimeo.com/designasaur/bigbadmonsters if you're interested.

Wow! Good work dude!

Your video was very entertaining, and you show a real flair for telling a story filmically and a grasp of subtext. I liked the adult take on a child's view. The ending was a bit weak, and I didn't go a bundle on the 'space invaders' - although definitely prefer your approach to the hyperviolence that sometimes seems the only reason for making a video. But very enjoyable.

A couple of points on the models. One of the most significant stylistic features of Paranorman was the asymmetry, and you could emphasise this a bit more. For Trump, his most distinctive feature is his quiff, but your model doesn't capture this and without it does not really give the impression of the man.

Having said all that, really nice work. Keep it up!
