For this exercise, you are going to don your art smock and do some weight painting with this simple exercise.

(NB: Art smock is optional)

Please use the starting file provided and recreate the 3 bone 'finger' chain shown in the previous demo.

Upload a screen recording or viewport animation that shows...

  • The chain bending 1 segment at a time (animation)
  • Nice smooth deformation at each joint.

The goal is to show that you have control of your weights and make it bend somewhat like a finger.

If you need reference, just look at those things on the end of your hands!

If you are brand new to this, expect to make a few mistakes.  But don't forget that mistakes are part of your learning.
