Hello all. Been awhile since I've been here. Glad to see everyone is still active and posting great stuff.

Though I'd return with a preliminary look at an armature in progress for a two-legged alien lizard creature I'm working on. It's still pretty rough, but I'm happy with it so far. I especially like the two googly eye stalks.

Anyhoo, good to be back.

Nice.  I look forward to seeing the progress.

Some serious armature machining on that little guy!  Welcome back!

So here's an update. The claws and upper lip have been added. Just a little more tweaking, then the final screwing down and securing all the pieces. Then the fun part, the build-up.

Looks great! What's the final puppet going to look like?

Heh heh. A "slightly" more sophisticated version of the same beast I've been filming for 40 years.

Think of a reptilian version of the ID monster from Forbidden Planet, but with buggy eye stalks.

That's the theory, anyway.

Really nice
