  1. : O amazing work very well, and the song is great for the subject, as it is called?

  2. Great job bud! Amazing character!

  3. Hey Andy!

    Great Character, Love it. Would really like to do some Subtle Lip-sync Animation with this guy, but I'm finding a few rigging issues that might cause problems down the road whilst animating. Most noticeably the Right eye blink blend-shape seems to move the mouth.

    All in all, thanks for sharing!

  4. Hey Chase,

    There will be a version 2.0 with some addition stuff coming out as soon as we get some Kiva support!


  5. Great rig Andy! Seems like a really fun and flexible character so far! I'm currently seeking work or I'd contribute to the Kiva, but I'd also love to see the eye blink thing sorted. A quick way to disable geometry selectability would be nice as well.


  6. Thanks Andy, Can't wait till v2.0.
    Appreciate what you're doing doing.



  7. Hey dude, awesome rig, I love the character design!
    Thanks for sharing

  8. Fantastic! By far my favorite and most organic rig I've used in Maya. I found it by seeing the winner of the 11 Second Club for August.

  9. Hi!!
    This is a very short animation test I've done with your rig:
