Rigging a Pig

Tomorrow's a big day for the short. Louie Hinayo, one of the animators who will be contributing his talents, starts tomorrow.  He'll be doing some tests to run the character through its paces to see if the rigs will need tweaking. We should be done with the blendshapes this week, so the final rigs will follow shortly.

Music plays a big role in this film. We have a rough composition in the animatic, which has served us until now, but needs to be re-scored. Looking forward to hearing what the composer comes up with.

I had a few minutes, this afternoon, to mess around with the rig. Here's Chub singing and dancing up a storm.


  1. Man this looks great! I love the way all forms dynamically flow from all angles. =D

  2. Look forward to seeing the animation! Love the design. Good work!

  3. Thanks for the compliments Alex and Mark. The rigging is almost finished and we're starting to block in animation now. I should have some more imagery posted within the next couple of weeks.
