I wanted to start off with a basic biped rig, The old man rig.
He was given to me to rig for my demo reel. he was supppose to be laying on a chair get up and walk around.
on this rig, i wanted it to carry a nice facial set up. allowing the animator to make the character blink, open his mouth in many ways, have a tounge set up,eyebrow and sagging cheeks controls.It carries a IK/FK leg and arm set up.The spine is built in Fk.
When i start most of my rigs, i like to draw out the joint placement.
that way i can see what works or what does not.
