Shadow Puppets

Made for Comics 1 for a specific comic assignment. Locke Frothington (with the hat and tentacles) meets Ashley (with the skates) by a strange set of coincidences involving some thin ice and a dimensional portal.. She's still at this point a bit weirded out.

These earlier shadow puppets are cut out of construction paper with a blade, then hinged at the joints using knotted thread. Later I figured out that mini-brads, the sort you use in scrapbooking, worked wonders.

Here are the twins being slick, with a unedited photo so the brads/joints show. In stage 2 of this process, I'd adjust the levels in photoshop until I got a flat black/white then fill in the spots of white in the forms.
