Okay, I've been working with plasticine for years. I can create cartoon characters that are almost identical to their counterparts (just in a 3D format). However, to animate them... they don't move…Continue
"I don't think there is a better clay type material than plasticine, if you want to do clay animation. Some of us prefer to use other types of materials like foam latex that can bend and be animated, but don't have the ability to be…"
"To stop-motion in general... I wouldn't say I'm a newbie so as much as an amateur.
I've made personal videos I haven't shared because I don't care to (they have no story, they are there just to see how things move &…"
"Even though you're experienced sculptor, are you a newbie to stop motion??? So much stuff to know about and would take bible size book contents about stop motion. In general, you definitely have an internal armature to support the…"

Okay, I've been working with plasticine for years. I can create cartoon characters that are almost identical to their counterparts (just in a 3D format).

Hi everyone! I'd like to share with you a project I'm working on for my third year of university. I'm making stop motion puppets of Nausicaa and Kai from the japanese animation 'Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind'. Puppet fabrication for stop…Continue
Before I go into my question, I want to say that I admire traditional stop motion and the people who spend years and years on bringing there creations to life.Question 1. I want to know if it is possible to create puppets, sets, props in real life…Continue
It was a beautiful summer day at the Muddy River, so an idea sparked, which was based on the works of Steve Archer (God Bless his soul), using a mix of animation and live-action. It was made with Dragon-Frame for the animation and Final Cut Pro for…Continue
