UnwieldilyElephant: Silicone Puppet Test

If you've ever come across the Beast From 20,000 Fathoms, you might recognize the beast in the above video. The Ray Harryhausen Beat was very popular in the early days of stop motion, but it still inspires a lot of people to this day. UnwieldilyElephant on our Stop Motion Discord took it upon himself to make an armature, then sculpt, mold and cast his puppet based off the original design.

While unfortunately his mold broke on him in several pieces, he still managed to piece it back together and finish what he began. His only complaint in the end was that he should have made the wire in the neck a bit thicker.

Have you tried to make a puppet like this and animate it? Share your stuff in our Discord over here.
