"Working hard is important. But there is something that matters even more, believing in yourself."

To showcase my final piece I took some high quality photos and then dropped the best photo into Photoshop. Here are the progress shots of putting the final image together, then the final image completed.

The Burrow, 14 inches.

"I solemnly swear that I am up to no good."

Here we go! Onto the building! Due to restrictions of reference material this completely embodied the term "WINGING IT." Which, in some cases, is better because it's taught me to adjust to the problems as they came which is always useful to get used to.

"It matter not what someone is born, but what they grow to be."

Following on from the previous post of the second brief 'Project Development'. After extensive research into how sets are constructed in Stop-Motion on feature films such as 'The Boxtrolls', 'Postman Pat', 'Wallace & Gromit', 'Mary & Max', 'Fantastic Mr.Fox', 'The Grand Budapest Hotel', etc., also being mesmerised by the 'Art Of' books from some of these. (I really need to get me some more 'Art Of' books...) I came to the conclusion that I wanted to re-create a set from one of my favourite film franchises, Harry Potter. 
I always like a challenge so I picked the house that's held up by magic and has no proper foundations! The Weasley's house, The Burrow. Here are some pre-production sheets I put together for the house!
