Puppet Design

I did some work on a stop-motion project recently, designing the main characters. I can't post any of the finished designs yet but here are some of the exploratory sketches for one of the characters (a retired dancer). This character underwent a major script change before settling on the final design which is why the designs are so varied.





The puppets are currently being made so as soon as I'm able I'll post a picture from the film. I can't wait to see how the designs translate from paper to 3-dimensional puppets.
