Hi there !
Im new inside the community and all of the site aportations are helping me a lot because I need to do an Stop Motion college final work for my career, and I wanted to know if anyone could help me by telling me some nice set tutorials/tips and puppet tips to make a furried beast of almost 30 cm for each arm. I am making a wired armature using different aluminium wires and epoxy miliput superfine white and maybe some wood parts. It would be awesome to hear some tips and opinions!! I attach some copyright protected images from the puppet concept too and the set.
Nice how the shoulder blades and hip bones stick out! Yep, has just the right lean and hungry look.
I went for a similar mangy effect with my version of Brown Jenkin, but the scrawny body came up more hound-like than rat-like once you take away the thick fur.
Shoulder blades were a bit of a challenge, so I made a t-shaped hollow plaster mould and slush moulded them. I followed the way you made boots, so there's your influence in another context!
For much of the other flesh I used physio wrap coated with latex and squeezed into shape.
