Mail Man 'Roy' Puppet Finished

Things have been busy, but all is going well.
Today I though I'd post a few pictures of my finished Mail Man puppet, something I should have done a while ago but for some reason...didn't.

The puppets of the two main characters of our film are now finished and my brother and I are very happy with the way they have turned out. If you'd like to see Nathan's finished puppet for our actress 'Elle' character you can click Here.

Final Main Man Puppet
This character has been a lot of fun to build and has allowed me to try out new techniques I hadn't previously attempted. It has also been interesting building two of the same puppet simultaniously and trying to get each puppet as identical as possible.

Below are some turn around images of one of the final puppets.

For these photos I decided to position the puppet in the same pose as the Maquette I sculpted of the character a while ago.

For the following photographs I decided to try out the puppet's replacement faces to give him some different expressions,and also position the body into a veriety of poses. Once photographed I had a go at digitally removing some of the seams from the face sections using photoshop. This is what my brother and I intend to do for any shots in the final film where the seams are noticable.

And finally, Here is an 'Ultimate Image' of the puppet I made using the photos I have taken. This was made as part of the business section of the University course. It is intended to help promote the University aswell as myself and my work.  

That's all for now, It's been mostly pictures today.
Next time I'll be talking about finishing off the Theatre Usher character which Nathan has been working on.
Thanks for looking.
