Twelvey and Clara are having a spectacular time in London!
I made this video for Mashable explaining the basics of stop motion animation. A certain puppet has a cameo. Check it out!
Doctor Puppet Episode 6 - The Sign of Four
One of the first challenges I faced in Episode 6 was making an animatable Fourth Doctor scarf in miniature.
I found a series 17 scarf pattern online and printed it out to scale. Even in miniature, it is 23 inches long.
The scarf has an armature made of aluminum wire wrapped in heavy aluminum foil. This allows it to be posed in gravity defying ways.
The armature is covered with knit fabric salvaged from an old shirt
I painted the scarf pattern on, using masking tape to keep it neat.
The finished scarf is actually long enough to wrap around my neck.
Doctor Puppet Episode 6 “The Sign of Four” is finally here! Enjoy!
Episode 6 “The Sign of Four” is on it’s way!
Hey everyone! We said Episode 6 would premiere today, but it’s still not quite ready for YouTube. We need a few more days to tweak the backgrounds and sound, because we are dedicated to making quality stuff. Thanks for your patience! It will be worth the wait.
Listen! I thoroughly enjoyed today’s episode.
Take a punt. Your choice. Wherever, whenever. Anywhere in time and space.
Love it, Erin!
