Frankie – Prototype Paper Monster for Halloween

Fri, 25 Sep 2015

If you've been following my Instagram feed you'll have seen this character already. With halloween approaching fast I thought it was time to bring him to life.

My plan is to animatate Frankie by connecting him to a vertical rotating shaft on a Mesh Gear box then, using a horizontal cam profile on the box top, I plan to make his arms move up and down as he turns round. He actually looks pretty good just turning without any arm movements but the moving arms will hopefully add an extra dimension.

Keep checking back to see how he is progressing!

    To make him look ghostly,

    To make him look ghostly, perhaps his arms move only up and down but do not rotate along with his body- only his body and head rotate. 

    Looks great.
