Well, after an epic battle to get the YouTube upload system to upload this without crashing, I am pleased to present my first test of a professional rig. This is my very short animation experiment undertaken as part of my research in to rigging and character animation for a college project. The animation is not perfect but I think it gives the impression of weight and mass to both character and object.
This was great to animate and I absolutely loved working with this character.
The model I used for this was a prerigged model called Whimp that is included for non commercial use with Maxon’s Cinema 4D. The copyright for this character remains with Glenn Frey (Bonewire)
