I have a simple goal for this years BWC, finish:o. I don’t care how simple things might turn out, I just want to finish.
Now about the stop motion theme. My initial thinking when I heard stop motion was to go down the “Nightmare Before Christmas” or “Coraline” route. But than I remembered stop motion wasn’t just about toons.
The first King Kong movie, the stars wars prequels, The first terminator, the original Clash of the titans and countless other movies all had stop motion animation surely I could go down a different route.
So as a homage to the King Kong movies and as a tribute to my one of my favorite fantasy artists who died this year, Frank Frazetta, I am now working on a Yeti versus the curvilicious warrior Babe.
The base mesh of the yeti is done and dusted and am mid way through sculpting, using jwilkins sculpt branch, there is still work to do. But for a scene that will have only two characters, progress has been good.
