Here’s a new puppet concept that I designed and built during the last two months. It took some time to refine, and alterations may still be made, but it’s at a stage now that I’m happy to show y’all.

Apologies for the echoey room :/

    That’s a very nice project Barnaby ! I think i could give you an idea: Use
    some slim black gloves and a a black background for manipulate it. I’m sure
    you will have a very good rendering. The problem isn’t the puppet… but
    the marionetist ! The next step is perhaps to find a solution to enhance
    your puppet. Be intelligent and protect a maximum your project. Many toy
    manufacturers may be interested. Surrounds you trust people and never gives
    plane! Good work !

    i understood “It was for stopmotion at first, but indeed the move is really
    cool, but we still can see my hand in the back”

    How about green glove ?

    Amazing. And whoever said “I’m pretty sure Jim Henson has made puppets like
    these” is WRONG. I’ve never seen anything as fluid while compact &
    (relatively) easy to maneuver. It’s still in the beta stage, so who knows
    what more you’ll flush out of it. I’m subscribed, impressed and a die-hard
    fan. #gobarnaby

    I am not a puppeteer, but I am an actor, and there is more personality in
    this puppet than some of the roles I’ve played. You, sir, are very skilled,
    and I wish to meet the character within this particular puppet.

    Did you ever think about black gloves+black background? I think it would
    look amazing. Your puppet is very well done, true craftsmanship! :)
