Character Rig personal project


Details: 

Chi is a character which I started to work mid 2016 in my free time when I was working for a company. I wanted to practice organic modeling and to build a rig with FK/Ik switch for the legs and arms. My goal was to end up with a rig which I will have fun practicing animation. 

I did a research on Neuron Axis motion capture system with an early build of the rig.

Vehicle Project



Details

The project aim was to experiment building a rig of a hard surface model and then implement it into Unreal engine.

 

The process of this projects creation can be found in my blog. I am using a different rig in Unreal because the resolution of the interior of the Evo is pretty low and doesnt look nice in cockpit FPC view. I just found the BMW model after I had already created the Evo rig. The BMW in Unreal uses the same rig as the Evo with the only difference that I didnt use the Control Curves in the Maya scene.

Facial Rig


 Details:

The goal for this project is to create a facial rig which combines blend shapes and joint based rig. The goal for the setup is to use combination of joint based rig blendshapes and nodes to make flexible character capable of wide range of emotions.
