I’ve been spending the last few weeks building maquettes and test painting the puppets. When everything is going well, like it did for the first 3 puppets you might start to think, “…why am I wasting so much time on this? I could be foaming up and painting the real puppets.” And just when you’re getting a little cocky and believe you can do no wrong, you paint something and think … WOW … THAT’S AWFUL. So it went with the forth puppet. Thank god it’s just a maquette. I’m on my second go on a paint scheme for said puppet, which I’m sure will be an improvement. I’ve shown a lot of work in progress so far … this test … I take to the grave.
