T is for Tree Beast

Last October, 2006, the seeds of Monster Month were planted. originally conceived as a way for me to hammer out some simple designs, ultimately choosing one for sculpting and casting, my first foam latex run. I made the Tree Beast puppet, but never got around to doing anything with it. Until now....
I'm resurrecting him for a special, ultra-short clip, a 2-day intensive involving live-action. I'm going to need a puppet stand-in, a tiny version of me to make that old Harryhausen switcheroo. Tonight I started on the mini-pup, the smallest and simplest I've made. No tie-downs or epoxy clay, just wire and latex.
I got a bit more of the 'Unearthed' cave interior set done this week too...
