My new class on Character Rigging just launched on Skillshare!! This is the first in a two part class. In this one we focus on a full character, arms, legs, the whole shabang. Keep your eyes peeled for part 2 where we’ll be building a bike for the character ride! I’ve also just launched a new YouTube channel for posting extra free bits and bobs so keep tabs on me over there if you’re interested!
