    Hi all! It's been awhile since my last post. Things have been very busy in the workshop lately. I plan on posting pictures of these characters (plus some behind-the-scenes pics) on the Project Puppet Blog, but here's a preview (just for MC members) of some of the characters Project Puppet has been working on.

    About half of the characters for this project were built from Project Puppet patterns. The others were custom patterns or "stock" patterns we had from previous projects. Hope you enjoy...

    I've said it before and I will say it again, "You are one of my favourtie builders."

    Personally, I love Big Mouth sooo much. He is something special.

    Great work. And what a wonderful style!

    Such a great group of new characters! Can't wait to share my newest "Bernard - The boy beaver genius!" based on the sock pattern. He is all finished and I should have photos in a few days.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Can the troll move his eyebrows?

    Thanks for all the comments, guys!

    There are more characters in the works. I'll post pictures of them as well when they are finished.

    Gfarkwort, yes, the trolls eyebrows move. More like an eye widening movement and they work independently of each other. I think the raising of just one of the eyebrows really fits his character.

    Awesome stuff!

    In a quick run-down, what'll you be doing with them?
  15. bezalel New Member

    Hey Foz - I'll be handing the characters off to the folks behind Big Magic Book. :) They'll be shooting 3 pilot episodes in a few weeks. It's to be a children's television show. The underlying idea of the show is that anything can happen between the pages of the Big Magic Book!

    You can read about it on the Big Magic Book Production Diary or more about the puppets on the Project Puppet Blog

    Great work Bezalel, simply wonderful characters.
    On a side note, was wondering if you would consider patterns or instructions on the mechs and other accessories you use on your puppets as part of your product line on your website?
  18. ChinoXL New Member

    Those are wicked! I like bigmouth allot
  19. bezalel New Member

    Thanks again for the positive comments everyone.

    Sleepylagoon, it's been our intention for quite a while now to come up with a blinking eye mech kit that could be easily added to the Project Puppet patterns (or any puppet for that matter). The idea hasn't materialized as of yet. Creating a product like a blinking eye mech is quite a challenge - balancing simplicity of design, availability of materials, the versatility of the mech itself, while (and at the same time):concern: making the whole package affordable. Nevertheless, it is a product we see for the future.

    We've been very busy recently in the custom puppet "department". Once we finish up the current projects, we'll be jumping feet first into new patterns and kits and series for Project Puppet. So really all I can say at this point is ...stay tuned!
