Accomplished this week:
played a show :P (I'm the short one on the right with the bass)
went to valentines day at my son's kindergarden
but stopmotion/short wise not much
a little more practice, which has me thinking that these little tests are kind of top priority for now, until I can actually get this puppet moving without flashing and popping all over. Guess I'm going to keep doing these little tests for a bit until I can start thinking about performance instead of just trying to achieve believable physical movement.
might be a long journey, but it's super fun!
thanks for the encouragement Justin, though you may want to withdraw it when you see my akward biped ;)
