phew.. made it through. Fantastic work; blown away, but I think its way too long.
Everything is really well done and works great, I love the idea for the finger controls.

Great Job :thumbsup:

hey, it is great reel you got. I only find face GUI with face model in background little distracting. or maybe just because it's Jason Osipas model lol.

Nice work. Forgive me for being a noob, but is the gui apart of Maya, or is it a plugin I need to buy? I was real impressed by the completeness of the rig and modifiers. I'm not very experienced in Maya charater rigging, so it just might be built in...

Great work there!
The script should really speed-up the facial rigging process. Really smooth deformations on the rig too! Thanks for sharing ideas on the automatic facial rig solution, really shed a light on the subject. :)
Congratulations!

thanks, GUI not apart of maya, it build from mel, auto rig also build from mel, not built in maya.
so, these mel script took a quite long time to finish.

this is really really nice. I am an animator so I only understood the first part of your reel but you seem to have some amazing scripting skills too. Being able to derive cartonny facial rigging setup from a human one seems like a really sweet autorig!

Congrat. If it weren't for obtaining a visa, I am sure you would have no problem finding work.

Good job Kevin. My ONLY comment is replace Osipa's face with your characters face. Other than that, I dig it. Oh, maybe for that extra WOW factor, at the end of your reel have your main character in something like caveman clothes in just a short animation, 10 sec or so. Something to pull all your work together. Ok, that was more than one comment. Still, nice work.

Hey Kevin excellent work there.It shows some great deformations and MEL scripting. I guess you could shorten it and add a few other types of characters to show variation. I do character rigging and MEL as well and I must say looking at the complexity of the set ups they must have taken quite a while. kudos man.
