Blink of an eye

Blinking eyes is a great way to show the inner life and thoughts of a character. Pikku can furrow his eyebrows but lacks the skill to blink. Since I normally work in animation I find this a great limitation that my puppets can’t blink (it would have been much to complicated to implement and control).

Efter some debate I decided to break one of the golden rules of puppetry and let Pikku blink by animating eyelids ontop of his eyes in After Effects. When I look at the result I’m pretty shure I did the right thing as the small eyeblinks¬†makes you focus a lot more on Pikku and his feelings.
