Today we were learning how to re-toplogize a head. This is kind of easy but also quite hard…I messed up parts of it and didn’t really get it the same as the reference image but I tried and didn’t give for once.
In the end I got this. It’s not finished obviously but I think I did ok? Some parts obviously aren’t right but I tried.
Later on in the day Conann took us again for another rigging class. I didn’t understand some parts but I did follow along with what we were doing ok until my maya crashed…I had to use a copy of Oisin’s instead because I would have been really far behind if I tried to redo everything we had.
I didn’t really take many screenshots of the progress but here’s two sort of showing what we were doing. We were trying to make an IK – FK switch and we were using the node editor to join things together. I find rigging to be really confusing…I should probably try things like this myself but I think I prefer just drawing.
