Kat Rig WIP1
Jackie put me in contact with Ethan Shilling, a post-graduate student renowned for creating complex and advanced rigs. I talked with him about the problems I might face when creating five rigs for five characters by January and he suggested that I rig only what's neccesarry, which makes sense.
For instance, Issac and Fat Cat most likely won't be needing any rigging on their legs since they never move them during the whole trailer. I will only be needing to fully rig the civilian and Kat it looks like, since the Shock Trooper model was based on the civilian model and will most likely not need a drastically different rig.
When making these rigs, I will also attempt to follow more advanced rigging tutorials online as well as the CG blog tutorials, taking parts from here and there; I would very much like to learn to create my own customized and personalized rigs.
Anyways, it looks like I'm in for the long haul over the next few weeks creating these rigs. I await a habit of sleepless nights and coffee drinking.
