Nice to meet you Lukas! Clay animation is a really good way to bring all those different forms of art into one final piece. Ray Harryhausen was also a jack of all trades like you. He could draw, paint and was heavily into mythology. It seems to be a trait of most stop motion animators, you should fit right in :)


Tom Brierton finished his armature DVD tutorial. Tom has been making armatures for many many years, only to recently retire. If anyone is interested... Show more

Hey Dhilly, there are a couple of good ways to hide those holes. One way is to use a tiny piece of tape over the hole, then paint it the same as the floor. Another way is to mix up some clay the same color as the floor. Then fill the hole with the clay and smooth it out. The last way is to use a digital paint program to paint over those holes with nearby colors in the image. But that requires Photoshop or something like Krita to do. You can download it here for free:
