Thanks for the feedback guys! The vocals will need some compression to get the volume more uniform. There are a few lines that I do want another crack at. I was kinda concerned about my high voice, but I agree it sounds like a puppet character voice, and not trying to do an imitation of Chris Cerf.

BTW, sorry to hear you are sick Snail! Hope you feel better soon!

Snail... I know this thread is about 8 balls of fur, but somewhere in the thread boning was mentioned. I said I would do some experimenting. Well, I did a run of generic puppets in January 2018 and tried out various methods for using PVC strips as boning around the base of the body and  also the shoulders. It really gives a  lot of stiffness to the body where the foams collapse and goes  'flat' after a time of use or storage. I like the results  so far. It is light, cheap, and so far the open body gives a looser feel on  the arm when  manipulating the puppet. I will trial it with puppeteers, and also see how the long term-ness of it works out. The  shoulder 'ring' for a generic is a little overkill and not  that necessary, but the  bottom ring  is great. I will do a video tutorial  when I get around to it and also  see which of the methods of installation is best .

Thanks Jessi! It was fun to do. I guess I'l post a little update since I have not been back to this thread for a while. I had to kinda stop production on my projects back in December. I got really busy with some personal business...and the holidays, family, the typical drill. Then, I got the flu, was hospitalized, and was out for a month. I'm finally back on my feet and have some time to work on the Eight Balls of Fur project again. As far as that project, I might have to rebuild the furballs. The puppets became kinda big and unwieldy to manipulate with the glove rods, so I might have to scale them back a bit. The big furballs are pretty cool, just not as puppets maybe.

Sorry you were ill but glad you are well now. Sorry the furballs need reworking, that often happens, things are different when you start to actually use them. Perfection does not usually happen on first try.
