Grasshopper Stop Motion Puppet

“When the world of the future caught aflame, a league of legendary heroes fought to extinguish the fires of injustice. Known only as The Cylcops Samurai, these mysterious cybernetic warriors watch over the land, protecting the innocent and avenging the fallen. Their origin is unknown, and their mission insatiable. Only one thing is clear; they fight on the side of righteousness.”


In November of 2017, I wanted to make a stop motion figure of a character from my in-development story “Cylclops Samurai”, just for kicks. His name is Grasshopper, a mild-mannered sensei haunted by a tragic past. Below are images of my process of bringing him from paper to tangible reality. Enjoy!
