I am trying to learn character rigging and animation, the modelling part is over and I will start the rigging proccess.
The head is connected to the body. I saw a video on youtube about connecting the shoe to the body. Is it a necessity to connect them?
Nope. It just makes the rigging easier. Sometimes you may want to rig in parts. Take a look at Rain on Blender.org. The whole character is in pieces. If it is in pieces, it will be harder to rig because you may have overlap between parts to deal with. That is why people join parts together. However, if you are very good at rigging, you can rig them apart. Good Luck and post your finished product.
Oh I get it, thank you so much
