I didn’t accomplish too much today, just a few odds and ends before taking on the next task.
I re-attached a foot that came off my armature and got him standing up.
I attached the head, everything went back together fairly easy.
I also gave the character an ear ring made from some aluminum wire.
I had a question in the comments yesterday, H.P. asked if the eyebrows will be static, or able to be animated? … and "is this the technique that Nightmare Before Christmas used with the half heads?"
I’m planning on animating the eyebrows for sure. They’ll be held on with sticky wax, and I’ll be able to slide them around to help create the expressions. I’ll also be using clay for the eyelids to make the blinks and squints.
To answer the second part, yes, it’s the same kind of thing they did in Nightmare Before Christmas and later in Coralline. Thanks H.K.
(… and thanks Shelley for the tips on the eyebrows!)
