Wayne, I like how Rivet's rig is set up. I'm starting to reverse engineer it. To give me a head start, do you have any notes on how it is set up?

    Rigging is a super complicated thing. I don't have any notes on how they are set up because it was custom built to solve the particular problems the character design threw at me. I can give you a few words of advice when reverse engineering (which is how I learnt). Just focus on one area at a time. Try to make it as simple as possible but no simpler. And try a bunch of different things with constraints in different orders. And stay consistent with your naming convention. It's a matter of learning small parts at a time and then putting them together. Good luck man, rigging can melt your brain but it's very rewarding.
