Mermaid Update.

Today i began the puppet making process, it was probably a bit rushed, but i wanted to get on with something.
at first i tried to simply use clay, but the character design i have isn't really suited to this, the characters best suited to clay puppets are more stocky & short characters,
Such as Wallace. However i want slender & tall characters. my best bet would be to look into how the puppets are made in Tim Burton Stop Motion animations, as his characters tend to be slim and tall.

As for the Clay Puppets, my models didn't go to plan and kept breaking, i did however make another puppet which has no relevance to the original project, but it was nice to create a puppet nonetheless. i hope to make a short animation using this puppet, but i don't have the patience today or a clear idea.
