Castor and Pollux

More cut outs for the stick puppets. These are the Gemini twins Castor and Pollux. I had over 40 of these to water color and draw in just a few days, so I just slapped on flat colors. The outlines are not refined and off in places, and the colors are simple, but it somehow makes it look even better suited to stick puppets, than if it were more "polished" looking.

Wow, you've been busy, this is fun looking stuff!

Is this for airing?

Thanks Craig. It is for a DVD collection, 12 x 80 minute series. Most of the project is live action, but there is a small section of about 4 minutes in each of the 12 dvd's that we made into a stick puppet show, which is what this stuff is from. Originally we were actually going to glue sticks to these cutouts and film them live, inside a little puppet theater. That plan was nixed in favor of scanning the cutouts and making it a stick puppet show digitally in after effects.
