I have been creating a Lego Minifig + Rig in Blender recently.
Modelling: ~4 hrs
Rigging: ~5 hrs
Weight Painting Legs: ~4 hrs
Weight Painting Other: ~ 1 hr
Total: ~14 hrs
You may remember the Lego Parkour Animation I uploaded to youtube quite a white ago (January 2012). Back then I used a rig from blendswap by an user called hjmediastudios.
While it was a decent and simple rig, I did miss some features which would have helped quite a lot while animating. So I created my own, which I will be able to modify as I which and add new features to it when I find them necessary.
Oh, so this means, I am planing another Lego Parkour Animation? Yeah, I am.
- Arm/Leg IK/FK Slideable
- Advanced Spline Rig
There are some features I have in mind, which I did not have the time to implement yet:
- A texture face rig
- Neck rig
- Fingers rig incomplete
I hope I will find some time to do some of these in the near future.
