Cartoony Rig – In Progress

Capture.PNG

Here is a work in progress rig I’m working on with a character a friend has graciously let me borrow. Geoff’s website can be seen here: http://geoffkaiser.weebly.com/

My goal for this project is to make a cartoony character that can use cartoony animation like deformations and bring them into the Unreal Engine. I plan on experimenting with both morph targets and alembic. The control rig is also an experiment for me, using shapes instead of curves to control the rig, so that the animator can better see what they are deforming.
