Stop Motion Animation Puppet by Jeff Lafferty

I haven’t been able to keep up with the blog lately, just too much real world stuff going on. There never seems to be enough time to do everything I want too.

I’ve made some good progress on the puppet. I think I’ve finally worked out the hair problem (more about that later) also the eyes are finally working.

All in all I think this head is a big improvement over the last one.

See you soon

Dean said...

Yeh, this looks great! And nice to see some Fett art in the background.

Ps I've never seen fingernails so short! :)

Manu said...

And you can change the facial expression ! (: o

Fantastic work, Jeff ! I still admire you for your creativity and all these things you can do with your hands ! Thumbs up for you ! :D

How are Tristan and Tania ? :)

Jenni Lee said...

Where did you get those awesome eyes?!
I love your style :)

Sean Tiffany said...

Nice! I like the idea of the hair being a mix of molded hair and a real hair pony tail. Good thinking!

And the mouths look amazing!

Thanks Ben I appreciate the encouragement. (Ben helped me out with some advice about the hair, I ended up giving the hair extensions another try and so far so good)

Thanks Dean, yeah, I’ve always had a problem with chewing my nails. Its something I picked up from my dad and I’ve never been able to break the habit.

Thanks Manu, both my T’s …Tanya & Tristan are doing well.

Thanks Jenni, I picked up the eyes at a place called They’re manufactured doll eyes. The ones I’m using are the 12mm cobalt blue, but they have quite a few different sizes and colors.

Thanks Sean, I think its going to work well.
