Anatomic Character Rig&Setup DemoReel

Anatomic Character Rig&Setup DemoReel from Esteban Mendez on Vimeo.

Here is what one of my student have to say and share through his Facebook post:

Hola personas! Desde hace bastantillo me propuse hacer un portafolio de rigging (una rama de Animacion Digital,  ) para poder trabajar algun dia en eso. Ya he llevado 2 cursos y ya estoy en el tercero de una escuela llamadaPuppeteer Lounge, la cual recomiendo montones, el segundo de los cursos que he llevado era de rigging anatomico, un reto bastante importante porque habia que entrarle bonito a la anatomia, entenderla y esculpir montones. De hecho tambien lleve un curso de escultura anatomica que valio montones la pena, aunque me sigue costando.En fin, el video del link, para los entusiastas del CG, es un reel de un rig anatomico, con estudio de anatomia previo, MayaMuscle, WrinkleMaps y lo que aprendi a usar.
Para los no entusiastas, es un video de un bicho verde moviendose, y se mueve porque yo configure para que se pudiese mover, aunque son otras personas las encargadas de darle la actuacion especifica, esas personas se llaman animadores de personajes y en este caso fueron la gente de Puppeteer Lounge. En los comentarios voy a dejar el reel del curso de rig toon que hice antes de este.
