5 Bone "Fully" Rigged Character
Fully might be a stretch

Hey I've written a short article on how I'm doing a "Fully!" Rigged Humanoid Character with arms,legs,elbows,knees containing only 5 important skeletal joints (my rig has six) and some clever skinning. The rig is made for our yet-to-be-named yet-to-be-dated "Game2" at Playdead - who kindly granted me permission to share it as I like, since it contains no info on our current production.

It literally looks like this.

A starfish of sorts.

I thought the idea and philosophy behind the rig and the creation of it might interest some. It's field of usage could be either low-end hardware or realtime crowd rendering. Rigging-wise it is however excessively fun to just philosophize and ponder about this sort of hyper optimization.

Here is a link to the article on my site :
