Stop motion puppet armature building process


Tengo un nuevo encargo para un esqueleto a medida y he decidido fabricarlo con vosotros lo primero que hago es imprimir el dibujo a escala real y a continuación sacar todas las medidas este será un gran muñeco vamos a empezar bolas listas, vamos a hacer todas las articulaciones es muy ruidoso hora de poner tornillos provisionales a todas estas piezas lo que hará especial a este muñeco serán sus pies voy a usar hierro y tendrá un articulación de bisagra para poder andar Esta es la última vez que lo monto antes de tratar las partes de hierro para protegerlas del oxido y verificar que todas las medidas son correctas y que el muñeco se mueve en todas las direcciones correctamente estoy muy contento parece perfecto vamos a tratar las partes estas son todas las piezas el aceite, mi soplete algunos días más tarde… tenemos nuestro muñeco acabado, hora de re-verificar que todas las articulaciones se mueven correctamente en todos los ángulos, direcciones y posiciones. es un buen muñeco

  1. "Gaaaaaa!" ~woosh!~
    Love these puppet armatures 😀 I'm always reminded of Steve French's "Woody".
    Check out Clickspring if you want a beautiful blue on those parts prior to oil quenching 🙂 He makes a Bluing tray, filled with brass shavings for even heat dissipation.

  2. so cool! your channel is already very cool and unique, keep the videos coming and you'll be full time youtubin about animation in a few years 🙂

  3. Gran trabajo, una pregunta: el buril que utilizas en el torno ya tiene la forma y el tamaño de la bola? ; asi lo compras o tu lo haces?. Saludos desde México

  4. Wow, awesome detail! Thank you for sharing. I was wondering, have you tried doing this kind of armature but through 3D printing instead?

  5. Hi Edu , can you tell me please what is the common size of square tube is used on armature puppets and what size you using for yours for hands , for head ? Thanks

  6. Me encanta lo que haces. Es una pasada. pero por que no hablas en español? tengo un nivel aceptable de inglés y te entiendo pero no hay nadie que haga este tipo de tu tutoriales o procesos de creación en nuestro idioma. Es una simple sugerencia. un cordial saludo y sigue con la magia 😉

  7. This is amazing!!! I'm getting into stop animation and i need to buy one of these from you!!! when will they be in stalk again?

  8. That's some beautiful work.
    Amazing, even with the machine shop, you still have a lot of hand work involved. Thank you for sharing the process! As others have posted, the price seems like a lot, until you realize how much work it takes. Wish you much success!

  9. I really admire your work as well as the dedication involved and I probably will be purchasing one. I prefer these armatures to wire ones because you can reuse them again without wire fatigue. How long would it take you to construct a 1:12 scale(6 inches) armature from start to finish?

  10. very nice 🙂 please tell me ?! how did you remove rigg in your video when background moving ??? I hope you understand me 😉 I really need answer

  11. Im que piensa de comenzar a hacer animaciones del movimiento de la parada y usted es una ayuda masiva. ¡Gracias hombre!

  12. Hello I would like to get a slicon hands for a character I made. like Kubo hands and in their size would you like to work with me in this case. i need theme to start my short movie in morocco i didn t found how to do them ther is no latex or silicon . would you like to contacte me pleaze/

  13. te agradezco infinitamente, llevo varias semanas ideando estructuras y en el proceso de prueba y error, me has aclarado muchos puntos y me ahorras mucho tiempo, gracias por compartir toda tu experiencia de la forma tan desinteresada como lo haces…un abrazo enorme desde México!!!

  14. loving this! In my country it will cost you less than $40 but I think its totally worth it. This guy is amazing. It really makes you realize how delicate and well planned a stop-motion is. Many people do not understand the animation industry and think that it is child's play. In a way it is, just with many technicalities involved. I am studying this, just on a much broader level. We need to conceptualize and realize everything as animators and with this I mean the narrative, the designs, the materialization of the designs as well as being active in the production as directors and animators straight through to post where we dictate and direct the post components within very short periods of time, such as 3 weeks for a 10 minute production (Production and post-production included) . Coming back to this video, it really gives insight into the international standard of production and I absolutely adore it. Thank you Edu for sharing your trade! Much appreciated.

  15. Very good job i know how its hard to create in real life and animate frames per frames. I don't know why there are 10 dislikes "At this moment" i liked. You just need to be more popular to get more likes. You anwser, you show, you replay, you teach, you create. When i looked at the comments of this video, there are only respectful and good messages. Continue, and you will get more suscribers. Im rooting for you ! And i subscribe. I hope that you enjoyed that comment.

  16. Great video Edu :). I have a question for you. What kind/brand of oil do you use when heating/strengthening the machined parts? Thanks in advance.

  17. Impresionante!!! personalmente siempre me dieron ganas de crear una animación en stopmotion para agregarla a mi portafolio de trabajos, ver todo tu procedimiento me pareció increíble y bello, aunque también me dio un poco de miedo todas las herramientas que usas xD por ahora creo que me iré por lo básico, alambres con palitos y unicel :'v gracias por compartir este video, va a favoritos!

  18. For the spine, it'd be interesting if it was made similarly to how a Bicycle chain is made. Only that a bike chain can only move two directions. So instead of a rod joining each part of the chain, if it was a washer (ball) then you'd be able to get tons of motion out of the spine.

  19. where is your e-mail to send you a couple of design to make an armature. I'm interested in buying about 4, 3 people and 1 quadruped

  20. Thanks for sharing your process, it's being very useful! I have one question tho, when you are doing the joints, you al ready have the rectangles cut and then you do the holes? Or yo do the holes and then cut the metal plate? Also whats that material? Thanks a lot, you are a real pro!

  21. Wow this is great, and I love all your videos, thanks! I still feel stuck, right now. maybe I’ll wait until I have better tools. I only have hand tools, and drills. I got through making balls, limbs cutting thread, almost there. But I can’t find brass or copper strips thick enough anywhere. The “K&S metals” here apparently don’t ever carry the thick stuff at hobby shops and I can’t actually tell what minimum thickness should be to look it up with online. Everything I’ve used bends with tightening.. any suggestions of the actual thickness the ball joint metal should be or a source for it? I don’t have a good enough metal shop to just cut up bigger slabs. God, it’s slow going without a proper lathe or drill press too, but rewarding if you can’t order $400 ones (before shipping) that only seem to be sold in Europe.

  22. Also if you’re looking for video subjects I would give you my leg for a video about tie-downs generally. Every animation related tutorial glosses over it so it’s baffling once you get to shooting. How to hide the holes? Only shoot in profile? What about frames where no feet are flat? Are there ways without tie downs or is that stupid? Everyones’ animation tutorial ends with “so that’s how you put holes in the feet!… now here’s a finished animation of walking…”. Whaaaatt!! Wait! Go back! Why not show me how to actually shoot with tie downs? I’m not finding it that easy to hide. Can’t find any resources for that, about jumping, types of tie downs, etc. pleeeease more! Thanks for all you do already, though.

  23. De que material son las bisagras y q es el spray o liquido q usas antes de cortar. Saludos desde Machu Picchu – Perú
