Quick update

_________________________________________________________

Hi everyone. I've been wanting to make a post about a few personal preferences when it comes to rigs, but I thought it might be easier to highlight points with an actual rig, instead of just notes. So inbetween work, the fam, and Street Fighter Remix, I think I've managed to (almost) complete a first pass at a new rig for y'all. I'll probably be able to share in a few weeks, in case anyone's interested.

Until then, I'll leave you with the following vids. A friend brought up 300 the other day and it reminded me of these:

Hey TJ,
Looking forward to checking out that rig.. Have you other public rigs, out of curiosity?

TJ Phan said...

Cool. I don't have any rigs out there at the moment, tho. And just as a heads up, the first version of the new rig won't have any facial controls. That'll have to come a little later when I find more time to learn. Hopefully, it'll still be enough for practicing mechanics, action sequences, and pantomime performances.

Talk about inspiring .. i always like working with rigs built by animators, they always know what is essential and what isn't! Keep up the great work TJ!
