I’m making a blocky character rig (Minecraft, if you know what it is) and I’m having trouble with the mouth.
So far, I’ve done this:
That’s all fine and dandy, but it’s not that good of a mouth for two reasons.
- You can’t individually control the vertices.
- Look at the shape of a mouth. They aren’t even remotely four-sided.
- It’s actually a test thing I threw together in half an hour for this thread specifically. It doesn’t contain teeth or a tongue, but I can handle that easily.
Number 1 can be solved by using a few bones and an armature modifier, but there’s no proper way to do it and it always looks really derpy.
Now, number 2 is where a problem arises. I simply cannot devise a good method to make a mouth that looks good and works well.
However, I have found someone who does.
A user named ProtoZion makes some really amazing animations with these characters. They are of questionable content and some of them are extremely offensive, but they are animated and rigged so well. Take a look at the mouth in these videos. That’s what I’d like to acheive.
Warning: The first video is NSFW vocally.
Can someone help me devise a method to create a mouth like this?
