Learn how to rigging in Blender. This course is suited to both beginners and more experienced riggers that wish to improve their skills. Whether this is the first time you add a bone to your Blender scene or you’ve already created several character rigs, this course is perfect for you.
Rigging plays a very important role in both the gaming and film industry. A bad rig can make production a real nightmare while a good rig can save you a lot of time and allow you to achieve more with your characters and models. Unfortunately this is often bypassed as most 3D artists are quickly discouraged or intimidated by rigging. This course is designed to help you overcome this barrier and take your rigging skills to the next level.
I have over 7 years of rigging experience, but particularly in the past 3 years of my career I’ve been creating my own rigs for animation quite intensively, this has opened my mind to more efffective rigging techniques.
