Help needed: Animated Slinging Short Flim
Dec 4th, 2023 at 6:01am
 
Hi All,

I have been asked by the animation team for some visual references for "The Rhodians".

1. Two slightly different looking slings. I would prefer to have some component (or the entire thing) be leather

2. A clay ball ammunition that is large enough to have a 4 words (in Doric) written on it. I have seen almond-shaped clay glands, but this ammo must be spherical for the sake of the script.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Thank you for the help, gentlemen. Still looking for historically accurate clay balls.

Is there something in particular you have in mind regarding color or texture?  A sphere is a sphere.  A clay ball made 2,000 years ago isn't really going to be any different than one made today.  If the shape needs to be spherical, then any image of a clay or stone ball should work.

I don't specifically recall any images of clay spheres on the forum.  It wouldn't surprise me if there was one posted at some point.  But usually if a person is going to the trouble of making their own projectiles out of clay, a glande with a biconical or other ovoid shape is going to be much more common.

Have you looked at the British Museum?

“My final hour is at hand. We face an enemy more numerous and cunning than the world has yet seen. Remember your training, and do not fear the hordes of Judas. I, without sin, shall cast the first stone. That will be your sign to attack! But you shall not fight this unholy enemy with stones. No! RAZOR GLANDES!  Aim for the eyes! May the Lord have mercy, for we shall show none!“  -Jesus the Noodler
