I ve started getting interested in rigging and animation. Therefore i d like to understand how rigs like Mancandy or Ludwig do work. Could you please post some links on the techniques used in this rigs? cause i do not even know how to create these controls
for the face and the controls at the feet of mancandy …
There’s no magic website around that will make you understand these rigs. The best way is to just muck around with em, break em, move em, edit them, pose em, unhide all the bones, lattices etc, and muck around with em.
Yes mancandy does use a lot of lattices, well, at least it has a LOT of lattice modifiers applied.
On Bassam’s blog he explains how the lattices work in one of the posts. He does not explain it in depth but there is enough good information that it should give you a good head start for understanding where to look.
