Rig Advance - Foundations

Wherein We Rebuild the Pose Library

1 1 Last time I built the post library, I did it rather haphazardly.

This time, I decided to apply a bit of methodology.

First, I pose her as spread out in every way as possible. Spread limbs, fingers, toes.

Then, I pose her as scrunched up and small as possible. Fists. Knees into chest.

I try to create a series of poses that will be good starting points for other poses

I try to create a series of poses that will be good starting points for other poses. I don’t know how successful I am. Time will tell.

Missing Rig Bits

The Zombie Pose is cute. Surely.

I want the tendons on the back of her hand to stand out

But I want the tendons on the back of her hand to stand out. Her toes similarly lack tendons when her toes are curled up/back.

I haven’t figured out how to solve this yet.

Clues? Write me! I’m Philo Vivero on gmail. It should be pretty obvious how to turn that into a workable email.

On top of that, I still have no idea how to rig hair. I have an extra constraint: I want to be able to re-parent geometry to the rig with automatic weights all the time. This makes it difficult to include the hair rig inside her body rig.

I will explore things like “child of” constraint, and hopefully this provides a solution. In any case, hair is proving to be a big challenge. I will probably give her a tied-up hair-doesn’t-move hairdo again soon.

Random Renders

Just a random selection.
