Description:

I built this model for possibly entering the 11 second club.

Most of the rig is Nathan Vegdahl's rigify so I'd like to give him credit for that and also his jaw rig.

The rest of the facial set up is based on Bassam Kurdali's mancandy with the use of lattices.

I'm not sure about the slider panel control scheme so if anyone has any input please comment.

I'd love to hear any other feedback as well.

Have fun.

    thats the new rigify add-on so I can't take credit for the ik/fk switches. I actually didn't realize what the snapping did until just now, thats really cool. I think thats new as of Blender 2.57. Rigify makes it so much easier build characters.

    For the brows I used shape keys. If your using Blender 2.57 there was a problem with the drivers. If you go to the help menu and click "f-curve/driver version fix" the brows should work. This happened to me when I first downloaded 2.57. Hope this helps.

    I don't think you need python for it. I'm not actually sure what the issue with the shapekeys is then. If you have any older versions of blender (2.56 or lower) it might work in there.

    As for the ik fk arms, I didn't actually do them myself, rigify made them for me.

    Heres a video about rigify: gwJWQ9_JE"&gt; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lgwJWQ9_JE</a>

    Also if you want to learn how make the ik/fk arms on your own, look at this tutorial: <a href="http://www.blendercookie.com/2011/02/07/creating_fk_ik_rig/" rel="nofollow">http://www.blendercookie.com/2011/02/07/creating_fk_ik_rig/</a>

    I don't think you have to be citizen to view the video. I'm not a citizen and I've watched it. The video is further down on the page.

    If you still can't view it there, its on vimeo here: <a href="http://vimeo.com/groups/114/videos/21130352" rel="nofollow">http://vimeo.com/groups/114/videos/21130352</a>

    Great work would love to see a tutorial on how you did this character. Im looking on doing a fat man version. Been looking around everywhere and blender boffs seem intent on getting everything possible out of blender, meaning total realism etc and forget the newbys who want to just start on a simple cartoon character first. Any help in this area would really be appreciated....PLEASE HELP A NEWBIE PROGRESS. many thanks
