Set for Doris

June 1, 2011

After a spell making prop weapons and rockets, I’ve had a chance to start making a small section of hallway for a test animation of Doris.

I’m re-using a door from a previous set and have adjusted it to open in the opposite way – reversing the door handle and finger plate positions.

I’ve started the walls for the hallway set.

The paper on the walls was made using fantastic embossed gift wrap that had been found in the store-room of an old stationery shop that has long since closed.  It’s precious as I’ve only got a few sheets of it left and sadly, probably not enough to do a whole room.

I’ve also started to make a small pet dog which may also feature in the animation. He’s at the early stages now and looks like this:

Small terrier-type dog

Haven’t thought of a suitably unsuitable name for him/her yet!
