Yep - It’s TSM all the way. From the “heel raisers” to the spine setup… it’s a rig I’m extremely comfortable with. You’ve just got to love the way that everything from the torso up maintains it’s own rotation…
Nope. I find it far easier to just build that stuff anew each time rather than having to fine tune all that blending. I find it also allows for more character and variation… Hopefully I’ll get more brave about really starting to vary walks as I progress. I don’t know why I’m telling you this though… I remember learning the benefits of this approach from reading a post of yours from the list!
Thanks for noticing! This was one of the hardest things to get right - having the arm “hang back” from the body’s turn for just the right amount of time was hard. Too little and the attitude didn’t read, too much and he became too feminine - it went from “aww, forget it!” to “talk to the hand!” - It was sassy, but didn’t quite fit.
Thanks for the comments guys. This place ain’t so bad after all
