Have you got a character you've modeled, but you'd love to get it moving and come to life?

Following Volume 1: Modeling, Blender Certified Trainer Lee Salvemini returns with Volume 2 of his Character Creation series. This second installment will take the modeled Ninja and make it animation ready. The course begins by going over all the rigging tools from a fundamental level (great for beginners!), all the way to building professional level animation rigs seen in the industry today, with full control via python scripted custom sliders. Lee will also include solutions to problems you’ll come across while building a practical and powerful rig in blender.

This ~11 hour collection of chapters which will share all these techniques is truly a complete reference for rigging that you can come back to again at any point during your time learning Blender.

Bonus Chapters Include Rigging with Cloth Simulation, and what you need to know about Rigify, Blender’s auto-rigging system.

In addition the character completed in this course is yours to use, even for commercial uses, under a Creative Commons license!

Who is the target audience?

  • If you are keen on a career in Video Games, Short Films or Film VFX, this course will prove an invaluable investment which will allow you to, right away, make characters animation ready for your portfolio/reel!
