Sketching: Harryhausen

The SpeakeasyFX sketchblog has now completed its fifth week. Themes so far have been Healthcare, Regret, Little Victories, Impossible, and now Harryhausen.

I was going to sketch something completely different at first. I read somewhere how Ray Harryhausen had made his first stop motion character, a cave bear, using a chunk of his mother's fur coat -- not unlike Kevin Clash (the voice of Elmo) cutting apart the black synthetic fur lining of his father's Sunday churchcoat to make one of his first puppets as well, Moandy.
