CGWorkshops: Character Facial Rigging


For seven years, Judd Simantov was the Lead Character Technical Director at Naughty Dog, working on gaming classics like the Uncharted series. Now he’s back in 2013 to share his secrets of succesfully rigging stylized faces and caricatures with you.

In his 8 week online workshop, Judd will teach you the differences between rigging realistic and stylized faces, the best areas to place joints so you get muscle control and good animation control, different skin binds and discuss workflow methodologies for painting weights.

There is so much contained in this workshop you should go here and have a read of the week by week course guide.

If you enrol in this course, you can bring your own face model (subject to Judd’s assessment for suitability) or use one that is supplied with the course.

“By far the best rigging class I have ever taken. Judd knows his stuff, both technically and artistically” - Brian Rogers, student, February 2012

High praise indeed! Enrol today and make the most of Judd’s experience and knowledge.
