HEROIC LUMP OF POLYMER CLAY! ...ain't got no junk!
Jeez, I haven't done anything on this sculpt in months! I lost interest when the soup of life got too chunky to stir (it's early). I'm pecking at it again, trying to get a few of my stray projects buttoned up so I can keep better focus. In the wise words of Dean Bycroft (@BeyondCraft), "Projects are like children. If you have too many they will all starve and die." Also, Conan's a pop character, I'd rather work on my own creatures and stories. Speaking of which...
I'm leaning towards stop motion puppets for my big fantasy world building idea again. Yeah, I know! I'm wishy washy, my brain spins 'round and 'round (and occasionally squeaks). I just got to thinking that I'm trading in one set of logistical problems for another. Instead of changing the channel, I think I should embrace my limitations in stopmo and learn to work with them. Those limitations being; I'm not a very good animator, I'm impatient, my puppets are tricky to animate.
The solution; make everything smaller! Small, easy to manipulate puppets use less materials, are easy to reach on a tabletop, and would take less time. If I can remember to keep my expectations realistic, I think I could get my ideas out this way. Maybe. Probably. Well, until I change my mind again.
