Diver – Paper Project Proposal

Sat, 14 Jul 2018

Idea for a paper project. Turn the handle on the box and the diver paddles their legs driven by a pair of cams in the base.

This was from something I drew whilst waiting for #TrueLove to try on clothes in a shop. Hot tip, always carry a sketchbook 🙂

I redrew the idea at home whilst videoing with a fixed camera then added the slight zoom and rotate as well as speeding up the footage using Adobe Premiere CC. You can just make out the dog’s legs at the top of the image.

Now with added BrushMarkers

    I really like this one. I actually like anything nautical themed! I remember once you made a sketch of a pirate ship and tentacles coming out of the water which I always wanted to see completed.

    As a side question, and I know it is against the spirit of this site, but have you ever considered mixing materials?
    Like throwing in the odd bit of string, elastic band or toothpick for some more variation in movement. Actually now that I write this I know some of your models have elastic bands!
    Anyway, I always love your designs. Keep up the amazing work!
