Which one is more sought for?

A rigger or an effects artist? I'm just curious.

well, i mean in a general sense. I guess, the question is more of a "what's the ratio between riggers and effects artists in the industry?" Do riggers outnumber the latter?

I guess in general the number of FX artists in a CG production surpasses the number of riggers. Just stay until the end of the credits in a CG movie to check that by yourself
