Meet my newest born: Stanislav. He's to be the star of my next film, which I'll be doing in winter 2008, trying out something new I'll be learning: animating with puppets.
It scares the hell outta me. Yessss.
I kept his design very simple so I can easily build a puppet, since modeling/building stuff is far from being my forte and I'm expecting it to be really hard. I think he's a real cutie, though. I'm in love with him <3 He's the only thing which keeps me drawing these days. The colours are not final though, and his legs will probably have to change.
The funny thing, though, is that although I know that my film's going to happen in Russia, at the end of the 19th/beginning of the 20th century, and that it involves a very melancholic Stanislav finding a lost parcel with no name on it, I have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what happens. Nothing. Niet. Nada. Rien.
So, basically... I need your help.
If the character inspires you, or you have an idea what's in the parcel (if he ends up opening it), etc., please tell me... I'm in need of good ideas. I've been searching for a while now, and I have yet to be enlightened. If I take your idea, you'll obviously be credited for it in my film. Thanks a lot!
