Automaton with Mechanism Above

I had an idea to see if I could develop the string movement that I used in my fairy automaton to make a mechanism that worked from above. So after a very quick sketch......


I have now roughed out a working version. I am fairly pleased with the movement but the composition is weak. Tomorrow I will try longer legs on the standing characters to see if this improves the dynamic.

It all looks right to me Caroline but I've no doubt that whatever you do to change it, it will be a superb automaton. Love those spiky teeth on Mr Croc.
