This is where we've got to this week with An1mal. It's starting to take a more solid shape, and mechanically it is working pretty well. The aluminium and plastic articulations inside the puppet are nearly finished, and I've added an outer shell for the head and torso by making hollow plastazote forms. It's been harder than I expected to make forms which hold their shape and position while allowing the cables and mechanical parts inside them enough room to move freely, but now that it's done I'm really looking forward to adding fur and seeing how the character of the animal develops.
