Looks good! Hands can be such a pain… I usually try to find a way to get around modeling them at all.

Marionette - pure
I built a working puppet using a cloth sim! It’s all one mesh, with internal springs to keep the sold bits roughly the right shape (though there’s a bit of distortion). I use shape keys moving the top of the strings to lower the knees as she stands up and to move the arms forward.
That is really cool. Even though it’s a simple mesh, it’s probably one of the best entries I’ve ever seen on the weekend challenges, purely for the creativity and originality!

Nice entries. very interesting…
Here’s my non-compete entry, Disrespect
I got hung up because I constructed the hand out of basic ovoids etc. - but when I went into sculpt to tidy it up, it made a messy connection between the fingers that were close but not touching…
No time to enter. Only idea was my entry in Challenge 958 Isolated renamed
Broken Strings. (not an entry)

Didn’t quite have time to add fuzz.
Models based on existing designs are ok, right?

Existing designs are perfectly fine as long as the models are new. If the entry reuses old models for important parts of the image it should be an open entry. (Nothing wrong with that either.)
