thief! again! I took the paper figure out on my patio today and tried incorporating a real background. halifax being one of the windiest places I’ve ever been in didn’t make it very easy. i had to tape the whole length of a metal ruler against the back of piece and reinforce it to the wall to get it to stay still enough for the shot.

Thief! This is a little tribute to the 1998 PC game, Thief. I suppose it does have an Assassin’s Creed feel to it as well, but Thief was the first 3d stealth-action game I ever played- so I hold it very dear. Sorry there’s no set-up shot for this one!

Catwoman! This is a piece inspired by Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One. That’s my favorite graphic novel of his by far. Seriously, if you haven’t read it- well, it’s perfect. That’s his Catwoman I modelled in the window, and myself as the security guard. As you can see from the wide angle shot, most of my set ups are super sketchy when you see what lies just outside the frame. It’s all fairly spontaneous as well. Sometimes, I’ll draw an outline of what I’m about to build- but for the most part, the cutouts all end up as happy accidents.

Assassin! I tried something a little different with a paper cutout I made today. The figure there is about seven inches tall, and I used a 28mm lens to get within a few inches of wall/figure while I’m about 5 feet away from the camera.

Hi everyone! I’ve been so busy lately working on a few other projects that I haven’t had time to make one of these. This one is sort of a combination of a few things. I lovelovelove Dark Souls so I wanted to use the lunging stab motion with the knight. The creepy guy with the axe is derived from one of the infected villagers from Resident Evil 4, and the castle is a reference to Super Mario Bros… the princess is, indeed, in another castle. Enjoy!
