I have a character that is actually partially rigged, by Matt LeFevre, he's a bit tied up at the moment with other projects and I was wondering if someone might be able to complete the rig. The part that needs completed is the facial rig. Matt did an awesome job on the body, top notch, and I was looking forward to seeing his work on the facial rig using wire deformers to give the cartoony flexibility I was looking for in the character. Virgil Mihailescu put me onto the idea of wire deformers for facial animation but I haven't much time due to classes to get into the nuts and bolts of rigging, let alone the facial rig.

So if you're up for a challenge send me message or reply to the thread and I can give you an idea of what I'm looking for. If you choose to do so you can even redo the whole rig.

Thanks

I don't know what your schedule and budget are like, but FaceMachine from Anzovin and FaceLift from Kickstand are both outstanding. Rigging is some deep stuff and I do not have enough love for it to learn how to set up everything I want in a rig. Anzovin and Kickstand both offer kickass tools for "the rest of us", allowing you to rig almost anything.

I've only truly played with the stuff from Anzovin. It's a rather heavy rig but has plenty of stretch and cartoonyness built in.

I don't know the prices for Kickstand's stuff, Anzovin's is around $100.

If you have a great rigger to team up with, that's awesome. I really don't and tools like these have really set me free.
