Walking is Hard

I thought I’d share one of my stop-motion animation tests today. As you’ll see, my model and I are still getting the hang of walking—he started leaning way too far forward, but instead of starting over, I came up with a quick solution to that problem.

I hope to have a test that incorporates some bunny slipper action soon. And I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about how best to animate some knitted characters—the physics of it are just a bit trickier than I originally thought. Anyway, I’m having fun with this new project!

  1. That is AWESOME! :) I love it! I can’t wait to see what you do with this. :)

  2. Thanks! This is obviously not the highest quality image and the red icons from the camera are a little distracting, but I’m trying not to be a perfectionist with it just yet.

  3. The leaning forward looks good! It looks like he has an ache in the back and leans forward, so the pain is not too bad.

  4. SOO cute, and really well done, i can’t wait to see more!!! Stop motion is my favorite video media!

  5. so cool! at school i did a claymation of a snowman with just a body and then all the body parts start rolling up and once the snowman is formed it melts. when its on the school website ill send a link
    so you can have a look. oh and the music is an island tropical sound but it matches perfectly!

    i love your bunny slippers man!very cool

  6. This is awesome! Did you make the old man? Maybe an obvious question. He is so different from your other characters.

  7. Very cool! I now want to go dog walking with the most hilarious bunny slippers I can find. Share the love!

  8. I was thinking he had a sore back too.
    I read your blurb first and than watched the video and saw nothing wrong with it!

    I liked when his mouth went :O

  9. So great! I used to do this in high school and KNOW how hard it is to get it to flow smoothly. You do an amazing job making it look so easy.
