rigging

Saved by the IK Booster again!

This time for the arm rigs. ‘Blue’ arm is using IK boost, ‘red’ arm still in default T-pose using the other rig The “blue” arm is using IK boost. The “red” arm is in default T pose still but is using the original rig which was modified from the leg rig (which works really well so far). The elbow directional on the arm just wasn’t working. I have ikstop on the collarbone and handles on the elbow and hand to make them that bit easier to see and grab.

My 3

QAD render to celebrate finishing the bulk of rigging. A couple of tiny little tweaks to make but it’s stuff I can do as I go. Low enhanced antialiasing, radiosity and Skytracer on default settings (added the thing, checked the cloud boxes). Think I used too much blue. And yes it looks funny as there are no joint or face morphs. I need more RAM and less OpenGL sliders. The pose is based off a really old pic of my sister’s as I realised a bit ago that my base models matched up with her fan characters.

Dragonkin completed rig

I’ve spent a good amount of time trying to work out how the hell to do a prehensile tail rig. The last time I did it, it involved a 72 bone multi-goal IK chain. It kinda hurt. This time, it involves a 65 bone IKB chain, main direction controlled by the big ball-shaped null object on the end. I haven’t yet tried to wrap the tail around something but I am stupidly confident.
