    Can anyone who has built a singing face before, or even knows how to do them, offer some advice??
    I want to do 2 singing faces for my daughters birthday party this year.

    Ive made up a design, with Peg board, drawn it all out. Im just getting stuck with the mouth movements.
    I was working on 5 channels for the mouth, being for all 5 vowels. A,E,I,O,U.
    Just having trouble working out what mouth shape is for what.
    Unless someone has had better luck with the mouth shapes doing it different??

    thanks
    Phil

    Re: Singing Faces

    put a mirror next to your monitor & try to match your mouth movements. This is how the first cartoons were done by Disney many decades ago. It is idiot proof.....

    LSP imports LOR sequences so you can still use the ItsMeBob app.
