Instagram artist wows Blender community on Reddit with "Wait... This is NOT a stop-motion"
The art of stop-motion has been given a digital twist by Instagram creator @meme.mousemouse, whose recent 3D art project titled "Wait... This is NOT a stop-motion" has garnered attention and praise on r/blender.
At first glance, the first-time claymation project features what appears to be a painstakingly crafted claymation sequence starring a charming clay mouse. Fans were initially led to believe it was a traditional stop-motion animation, only to discover the creator's adept use of Blender to simulate the effect.
Reddit users have expressed their admiration for meme.mousemouse's original project, particularly noting the lifelike rendering of hands and the subtle yet effective lighting changes that contributed to the stop-motion illusion.
The attention to detail and the seamless integration of CG elements have left a strong impression on the Blender community, with many commending the artist's ability to create a digital work that captures the essence and charm of classic claymation.
meme.mousemouse revealed that while the character was animated to look like clay, the props such as the chair, table, and dog's hat were 3D printed. The artist expressed excitement about embarking on the animation process, highlighting the ways in which technology can augment traditional art forms.
A behind-the-scenes look shared on November 8th revealed the digital skeleton used for animating the dog, alongside the finely detailed 3D printed accessories, offering insight into the innovative blend of techniques employed in the project.
