Do you know what a zoetrope is?
A zoetrope is animation devices that using an afterimage. I made that with LEGO.
Usually, ‘LEGO Animation’ means a stop motion animation, but this is a ‘Real’ 3D Animation! :-)
The figure seems to be jumping!
PrototypeI made an octagon cylinder, and I arranged the 8 mini-figures with a different pose.
But this prototype was not so good.
This animation is not smooth because there are not enough frames.
I thought the octagon weren’t enough…
Smooth AnimationSo I made a dodecagon cylinder.
This animation is smooth!
DecorationIt’s a very important work for me.
It seems to be the space station which has come out with a ‘2001:a space odyssey’.
This model looks like HAL9000, don’t you think so?
My studioThis is my studio. :-)
What do you think of my small studio?
