Hi, Since I joined this group I planned to start making some pro-looking puppets and despite being here awhile now I am finally putting together ideas in my head to start with. Here are two puppets in their final designs (as drawn in PSP8) they will be used for some video productions that are currently being scripted. The Doctor: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/maxwood/puppets/doctorsmall.gif who is going to be a live hand puppet, the right arm/hand will be interchangable with one that can be used by a second performer and one which will sit there (for example when Nicky "Avenue Q" is being operated with just Rick) - ya know what I mean! and Astra: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/maxwood/puppets/astrasmall.gif who will be a regular hand and rod puppet. Does anyone have any suggestions? comments on the designs? colours? David.
