Most puppets begin as an idea. The idea defines how a puppet will be made. Will it be a marionette? Then it will need detailed drawings of the moving parts. Will it be a hand puppet? Then it will need a drawingof the head and the hands of the character. Then, a drawing is made. It might be a simple pencil drawing. or a complicated one.
