Challenge 901: The Taming of the Shrew
I spotted this little Jumping Shrew in the splendid Horniman Museum a few weeks ago. Much as I admire his platform heels, I'd love to see him jump.

High res is here.

Having real difficulty getting motivated by this one. So silliness. Hopefully think of something later in the week.

Now that's really jumping.

By the way I just discovered, after my gnome entry, that these things are tiny! 5 - 10 cms (2" - 4") typically.

Tiny indeed.

My idea to use an elephant stemmed from this: "Researchers have noted that the elephant shrew shares much of its genetic material with elephants."

i really don't know how I got from the starting image to this video but I suppose that my outrage got the better of me. Something a little more serious than I normally do.

The shrew might be tiny but it can give a very nasty bite if provoked.
I hope nobody is offended by this video, apart from Putin of course.

Gordon, as Josephine has written it is "very stirring stuff". I was riveted by the subject and clarity of your animation, but burst out laughing when, suddenly, and totally off-message, this stuffed shrew jumped up and started bouncing around...

Dennis, a beautifully atmospheric background. Not sure about the ghostly cat and the flying shrew!

Loyd

David yet again very natural looking--I like it!

Gordon I like the theme, but that tank needs a shadow underneath it. Yer got my email address, so I would appreciate those animated flames...please.


Dennis the cat and the rat thingy do nothing for an otherwise beautifully highly detailed and textured scene. I think we would all like to see more of this quality work from you .


My entry comes in three parts: Part1, Part2 and part3 (parts 1,and 2 are animations and part 3 is static),

Ukrainian commander Victor Shrewkovsky makes his debut in Part 2


A three framer and two framer respectively.
