Trub Animated Cartoon / Shaman Rig by Dimetrii

Shaman Rig from Dimetrii on Vimeo.

I did rigging for the character "Shaman". In Blender 2.5. Added new elements to control the fingers, face and spine. Rigging for fingers

can now be done very quickly. Controls for the face (eyebrows, Jaw, lips), ease of use. Do not make a lot of shapes keys. I think this is very useful rigging.

  1. I liked the Trub movie. It was unexpected and made me laugh. The video on the rigging was also very interesting. Very useful to see. Thanks Dimetii.

  2. I love that facial rig! very clean and flexible. The hand rig is good too, different from the simple, but good. Would love a whole-hand open/close control though, as most times you just grab stuff. Thank you!

  3. The most interesting part for me was when the character did hold microphone.
    Was the microphone rig and character rig connected somehow?

  4. Great rig! Is there a possibility that we can download the shaman rig to play with? I would like to see how its rigged in depth.
