Paper Cat Animation by melllic Paper Cat Animation by melllic
   Enter our Deviant Paper Cat Contest: [link]

   09-15-09 Make your own Paper Cat here! [link]

_________________

   03-01-09 Due to the ongoing popularity of this animation I have released Paper Cat Kits for sale on my website
[link]

   Also soon to come is a basic version of the Cat Kit & a FREE Deviant Art version. I'll keep you updated.

_________________

   This is something I threw together in a couple hours.
   I was kinda board and wanted to animate paper...
The only problem is that the cat is not very flexible, well, in comparison to a live cat...

Tools used: Tagboard, Printout of My Paper Cat, scissors, 1 MP PDA camera, K'nex stand.
Time taken: 1hr or so...

How long did it take, bytheway?

melllic Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2008
It was only like a 30min session. I didn't have a tripod at the time, so it took longer to rig the camera. I have some ideas for future paper animations, of course it's the time factor that's the problem.

I wasn't aware anyone had developed a paper cat either. Have you made your cat out of paper...? I'm planning on selling mine. Not only have I made them in different colors, but I've also made different animals.

I've always wanted to try animation, but i've never thought of doing it with something as simple as paper. Genius! lol :D

^_^ Yeah I was bored one day, and just couldn't get the idea out of my head... I've attempted paper animation before... (south park style...) but this is much better!

Oh really! You're welcome ^_^ I used wire to help the paper move... wire inbetween two pieces of paper... The glue I used didn't work well, it wasn't flexible enough...

Hey, I think I figured out why it goes so fast... or actually shows quicker than normal on firefox... >.<

Thanks, I could make it slower sometime later... Timeing is something I definately need to work on... But high speeds hide mistakes... lol

if you take more frames then you can always fiddle with it after... and you can always speed it up if you really don't like it in the end =P <3
