This post is a step by step instruction for the HPA (Humanly Posable Armature) Kit (HPA1.0 beta) which can be used to make articulated puppets and dolls, such as these:
I want to share with you my Eye Stick – the tool I made out of “That’s the one” Tool”
I saw this kind of tool on P. Faraut sculpting video, it is available for purchase at his website.
Unfortunately, it is too large, as Philippe Faraut mostly works in life-size sculpture.
So I made my own mini eye stick – for miniature scale (1:6 to 1:3).
Natalie is the next part of the Humanly Posable Armature experiment.
If you just arrived and landed here, you can see the detailed description of the parts and tools here.
The inspiration image was this lovely 1832 portrait by Karl Brullov of Nataliа Pushkina or Natalie (as she was familiarly known) – wife of the acclaimed Alexander Pushkin.
