Based on the characteristics of hand puppets, here we introduce 15 types of templates including; Hand Side, Hands Fold, Fingers, Fingers Bend, Radiate, Animal, Humanoid, Long Neck, Multifoot, Wing, Tree, Overlapping, Single Curl, Shrink and Diffusion, which can all be controlled through hand and finger performances.
Besides the 10 sample hands (created by hand side template) for hand gesture performances, inside you will find 32 derivative sample actors created from an additional 14 templates that further demonstrate the wide range of use of each template. Each sample actor includes its pre-made animations, which are produced for its specific template bone. Just right-click the Action Menu to instantly use them.
You can further create your own characters using these templates by following our tutorial video. Simply replace the sprites of each template and fine-tune their positions with corresponding bone node positions for best visual results.
All templates were designed and tailored for hand puppet control. If you have a motion capture device, then you can animate these templates with your fingers, hand and arms through corresponding bones.
All templates and sample actors in this series support Motion Live 2D: Leap Motion and Perception Neuron Mocap Devices. Use your device directly with the included .json setting file and play to create your animations.
