After spending what feels like an age trying to rig sadbot properly (still not there yet) I was jonesing to animate something...anything!
So thanks to the guy at http://animationresourcecentre.blogspot.com/
I got hold of Easyman, a premade rig, from http://www.highend3d.com
After playing with the turtorial in my book, and much experimenting this weekend with serveral rigs/models i found easyman the simplest to make do what i wanted. Managed to create this in a couple of hours this evening.
I think i might add some movement in the face/mouth but one step at a time! had forgotten how much i enjoy animating more than just pretty patterns. I'm probably more excited about this than I should be, and its a simple exersise, but hey i gotta start somewhere.
any tips/constructive critism are as always welcome.
