On Top of the Sea

Jelly Hand- 3 treatments of the same motions.  
The latest variation of the jellyfish...this one's a little more complicated.
Motions are derived from a hand (Eric Camper) with markers moving up and down in a jelly fish like motion. This was done in 2004 or 2005, but I just recently got to playing around with it.

Movie 3









Not so sure what these are, but they were a lot of fun to make...need Quicktime7 to view. This is more of Eric's hand capture. The crabby things are a lot of fun and very simple...the alternate one is just a change in position of the legs which changes the geometry.

There will be more to come once I get the time to play with the motion in Maya. As the other puppetry work, the characters, rigging, etc. take place in Maya.
