The Walk !?…

Adem

Adem… My next post will be about the Creation Of Adem. There is a lot to post so I think a separate one for the pictures could be better. Here some pictures I have just taken. You can click to enlarge. .

An Amazing Bird Puppet!

Someone on stopmotionanimation.com message board posted the URL of a music video by Bowerbirds a while ago. There is an amazing crow puppet here. He said that he made the armature for the wings.

Back to Tree of Life
