Very impressive facial rigging demo based on FACS by Souki. The rig is controlled by over 100 joints. The facial wrinkles are driven through connected normal maps using a custom DX11 shader.

Rigging Workshop 2 Bonus Materials


Puppeteer Lounge Rigging Workshop 2 (Cartoon Character Setup) gets even better with bonus materials that goes over Soft IK, Automated Pivot Control, IK – FK snapping, Space Switching and Smear Controls! All of these features can be added upon existing rigs; making the rigs more awesome :)

Student Feedback:

Edgar Jardim (Venezuela) - I am currently doing rigging workshop 2 and it's fantastic the amount of topics it covers, it's full of neat tricks to learn and implement on your own cartoon characters and the tutor explains every step of the process in great detail I totally recommend it. I'll be doing workshop 3 after I finish this one.
