Komar lizard

hey everyone! wow a long time since i have posted here!
Ive got a problem. I’ve modelled a character called Komar, and I want to use him in another animated short, but I can’t for the life of me work out how to rig him. I’ve tried using the book ‘Animation in Blender’ and it doesn’t work. Any suggestions people?

Umm, to the best of knowledge the rig would be pretty straight forward. The rig used in ‘BSOD’s Introduction to character animation’ would work fine i think.

thanks for teh quick reply FloorPlay :slight_smile:

The trouble i’m facing si working out all the IK constraints and stuff, setting upt the skeleton is pretty easy :slight_smile:

do you have a link to this tutorial? cheers mate

The direct link seems to be down at the moment. Here is a link to the tutorial thread though.

The only adjustmets you will need to make is for the tail.
I had a couple of other more advanced rigging tutorials from BSOD but all his links seem to be down. I’ll post them as soon as they start working again.

thanks mate!
