The story of the last leaf from the tree's point of view. This is my latest film. It was completed in late October.Overall, it took about four months (workin...
Fantastic!I like it!
This is great, the atmosphere, the look of the treeman, the set and the animation is all great, even the leaf in the wind was well animated i thought.
The one thing that i wasn't so keen on was the walk , it looked like you had trouble making it take strides...from a puppet making point of view, but dont take this as a negative critasism, just a observation from one animator to another, it makes us stronger,
Aside from that this is a really good piece of work :-) i hope you submit it into festivals
Yeah, I had a heck of a time animating his walk. His stubby roots just didn't want to move, so I ended up shuffling him around.
I originally made this in hopes of sending it to the Stop-Motion Magazine Film Festival, but I missed the deadline. Maybe I can catch it this year.
May I ask what kind of armature you have inside him?IOs it an "all wire" armature, ball&socket,or combination of the two?Also,is he made of liquid latex/latex "build up",foam latex,or is he cast of silicone or urethane rubber?
He's an all wire armature with epoxy putty bones and cotton and liquid latex build up. He's got real twigs on his head, which broke several times during shooting.
Wow. Just terrific!
I loved this, very cool animation. That tree character is brilliant.
beautifully done. love the atmosphere. :) Made a similar tree-creature with the same method a long while back :) But yours is much better :Dhttp://www.stopmotionanimation.com/photo/forest-creature?context=al...
