I created model of cartoony character,speciffically lion.
That lion has body,shirt with buttons,jacket with buttons,pants,some sort of fabric belt and sneakers.
At the last minute i was informed that there will be no cloth simulation,or anything else,i had to setup and bind all the piesces together.
Now i started doing rig,but i have some serious questions.
Should i now delete all of the inner faces of geometry on shirt and jacket,lion parts that are not visible and bind it like one geometry to joints ?
If i do so, should i leave head separated for blend shapes,since its partially occluded by shirt,and delete the rest of the body ?
Problem is i newer binded separated piesces and i'm not sure if there are any potential problems if head is one object and shirt is another one etc/
Lastly should i even merge it into one mesh ?
I believe it's a litle bit tricky to paint weights over multiple piesces of geometry,so i'm kinda confused.
Here i'll put two pics of low res geometry,one represent all the different parts and one is rig done so far.
Also i was thinking to constraint buttons on shirt and jacket with Rivet Script but i still dont know what to do with bagpack on his back :(
Any advice will be much appreciated.
