Servant: Rig-presentation

February 28, 2011

The rig for the king and the servant is complete.

I’ve tried to keep the rigs as clean as possible, without too many features we don’t need.

Rig features:
Torso/Spine:
- Possibility to turn on/off stretch for the spine
- Adjustable values of the squash
- Combination of FK and IK
- Spaceswitch for which of the controllers to inherit translate/rotations from
- Advanced twist-control for the spine
- Attribute showing the stretch-factor of the spine
Neck/Head:
- Possibility to turn on/off stretch for the neck
- Aim-controller for where the face should point towards
- Individual control for the head ontop of the aim
- Spaceswitch for the neck, head and the aim-controller
- Advanced twist-control for the neck
- SDK-driven bend-deformer on the head
- Attribute showing the stretch-factor of the neck
Shoulders/Arms:
- Stretchy IK on the shoulders
- Stretchy FK/IK on the arms
- Possibility to turn on/off stretch for the shoulders
- Spaceswitch for the IK hand-controllers and the polevectors
- Attribute showing the stretch-factor of the arms
Legs:
- Stretchy FK/IK on the legs
- Possibility to turn on/off stretch for the legs
- No-flip IK leg setup, the knee is controlled with an attribute

All of the limbs are set up with ribbons for better deformations. The entire rig is nodebased. The rig is scalable, and the hierarchy is clean and sorted.

A test-render of our servant character. Just to see how the materials are doing. The only thing remaining is to tweak the SSS-shader and get some texturemaps on his face.

Tower Occlusion

I started modelling the tower a few days ago, the progress has been painfully slow so far… Just thinking about style and placement…baaaahh.
Anyways, here’s a occlusion render of the model so far…
