Studio Week 4: Demo B



Automata Mechanisms

For this week’s assignment, I decided to make Toothless (from How to Train Your Dragon) on a cloud background. I was planning to make the whole figure 2D but I thought it would look more interesting if I cut two wings on separate paper and then put them on the body part so that it seems more like he’s flying.


In the research that I found I saw a horse automation where the horse move very smoothly within the wheel. I tried to use similar technique but I couldn’t figure out how to do so, and the outcome that I made is half-moving (I need to move the handle back and forth). It was the first time making something using automata mechanisms so in the future I would definitely plan a little more and figure out how to fully move the handle.
