mr. fisherman is now all painted, and all replacement mouth shapes + eyelids have been made and painted as well. there is no lip sync in my film, so the mouth shapes are for expressions only. now all that's left to do is clothing, including boots. i'm not entirely sure how to go about those yet, because i still want some bend in his feet. also now that i look at these photos i think i will re-do his eyebrows with more detail instead of just weird misshapen rectangles stuck on his face.
he still needs a name. any suggestions?
this is the main character in my film, so far i have completed the wire armature, a foam body and sculpey head. the head is removable, slides on and off using brass stock. the next step will be painting, creating different replaceable mouth shapes, and finally clothing.
