Although it is already moving well with the current design I used, I am still not 100% comfortable that the eye lashes design has been perfected yet. I need to think of a better design for the joints behind the eye lashes so that it will move even more smoother than it does now.
This is what I am pondering about right now. I made another stop motion animated GIF below. I haven’t fastened the eye lids behind the eye sockets so you will see more shadow as there is still a gap there. But the overall effect has been quite satisfactory so far.
Tell me your thoughts in the blinking eye forum thread below:
The project has been thus far fairly complicated but it was extremely fun making it. There hasn’t been this much excitement since the times when I make new masks and talked about their making processes.
The eye section is nearly completed, but it isn’t. I need to find a better joint design or there would be problems in the future. I have yet contemplated on how the pistons will go inside the mask and I foresee that it will be an even more challenging task. There isn’t a lot of room in the mask and the head has to fit in it. Well, I’ll know when I get there.
Below are the pics as promised from last time. Yu in black PVC outfit. I have a few more of the same theme to add afterwards~^_^
