Tutorial: Rigging a Dog


Kent Trammell breaks down his approach to rigging a 3D Boxer Dog model, complete with IK constraints and custom bone shapes. The Dog model can be downloaded so you can rig alongside Kent and pose the dog in anatomically correct ways.

This exercise is designed to give you hands-on experience with basic character rigging. In the Fundamentals of Rigging course, you learned the essential theory and skills needed for preparing a biped for animation. Now for this exercise, the challenge is to apply your knowledge to a quadruped.
