Animation Essentials with Wayne Dixon
Learn from professional animator, Wayne Dixon, as he explains and demonstrates the art of character movement with Blender.
You've already been exposed to animation "rigs" in the previous section. Just as a body can't move without a skeleton, nor a car without an engine, complex models need a "rig" to move in 3D/Blender. Rigging is largely a technical skillset that serves to prepare a model for complex movement.
Animation in Practice
Further rigging and animation workflow from a variety of artists including Beorn Leonard, Nathan Vegdahl, and Kent Trammell.
