Time for an update
This weekend I took the time to bone and rig the thing. It is almost done, I think… though whilst writing this I came to think of that I still miss controllers for his shoulders. I had it in mind when starting the setup, but forgot it. I will put at his shoulders and let the upper arm bones have them respectiely as goals. I will then turn on IK for the shoulderbones as well. I will parent the shouldernulls to a master that can controll both shoulders.
Anyway… hera are some images of the setup and bones. I tried to keep them as clean as possible, but these rigshots tend to end up messy… sorry for that.
If anyone has suggestions or questions, please let me know (this is still a WIP and I´m not that experienced with rigging… )
I wrap this update with a preview of the traditional arrangement of a walkcycle.
ANNOYING WALK - [DivX 5.0.3 - 1MB]
Don´t know if this is the style I will let him walk eventually. It will do for testing the rest of the setup though. Soo… up next: MD-setup fpr vest, helmet and weener (I haven´t tried that last thing out yet).
