Updating with more WIP. This post focuses on the Hebrew children sequence. I’ve been working in MOHO Studio Pro for the animation in this one. It’s my first attempt at puppet animation, so there has been a learning curve.I do like the software, thought the official documentation is garbage.Lots of YouTube research and googling have helped.
I’m going for a totally different look here, as is evident. While the Crucifixion story has a brutality/ugliness to it that I wanted to convey somehow in the look of that piece, this sequence has a more wondrous/miraculous element to it.I wanted some vibrancy in the design.Someting clean, but textured. I’ve arrived at a look I’m happy with for this one.
Here’re some background designs
This is an establishing shot of the furnace. It’s also hi-res enough to serve as a closeup for the boys being tossed into the furnace.
This is the background for the opening shot, as Kin Neb stands above his subjects, and before his golden statue.
This shot is for multiple shots of the brothers in the fiery furnace, protected by the fourth figure.
ere are some vids reviewing mostly the puppets/rigs I’m working with for these. Rigging has been difficult to figure out, but I’m improving. For these animation required for these short shots, I think I’ll be ok.
