Roxas - 2d Puppet
I produced some live motion-capture 2D puppets in Adobe Character Animator to use for live streaming on Twitch. I took the program head on for the first time and taught myself the software. I planned and sketched out the stop motion images in Paint Tool SAI before moving to Photoshop to put it all together and set up the layer hierarchy and assign roles. I then rigged and tested the final product in Adobe Character Animator.
This puppet features motion capture expressions, live lip-sync and "gravity" controlled features such as ears, hair and other soft accessories.
JENNA - 2d Puppet
I wanted to produce a counterpart to the Roxas puppet and to learn some new things and stretch the limits of the old rig by adding new features and experimenting with the capabilities software. So I made Jenna!
This puppet features a lot of the same as the Roxas puppet, but also includes Animated Triggers that can be activated while streaming, it adds some more life and character to the puppet!
