Unit 5 - Maya

I really enjoyed these tutorials, I always wondered how characters moved so fluidly in films like Monsters Inc. or Toy Story. But never actually knew that the characters were rigged first, including creating the kinetics and restrictions to how far it can move, and the bodies of characters were added in later. Would love to see the rigging for Wall-E.

The intro to character animation tutorials also was interesting as the use of key frames conveniently correlate with what I will need to do in regard to my final animation frames. I'm pretty thankful for that.

I wasn't sure how else to show off the rigging other then screenshots, so the following is the series of final bodyparts after I've completed them.
