This is an exercise submission on the exercise Weight Paint a Monkey Head

This submission has passed!

Exercises are a great way to test what you've learned given certain restraints, while getting feedback from your peers. Plus, they're a lot of fun!

    That's not an Ugly Monkey. That's Suzanne!


    With the bone parenting, the ears should be parented to the head bone so they follow allow when the head is moving.

    With the weights, I think you can have less ear weight on the head part (especially the above where the ear connects).  I would make the red weights of the head go closer to the ear geo, and then soften the first part as it flows into the ear (blur) so it has a smoother connection.

    I hope that makes sense. It's always hard trying to explain something that is visual via text haha

    Would of been good to see the weights, but I can see it works. Maybe weighted too close to the head at the top of the ear, as it is deforming part of the head also.
