This is the rig for the Haworth cat owner's hands. As you only see the hands there's no point in doing the rest of the character, this relates to other cat cartoons like tom and jerry where you only see peoples legs.

No major changed to the way I rig except ive used the weigh blended skinning method, this way the volume around the wrist is kept when twisting instead of folding up like a candy wrapper :)

This is part of the design for industry group project, the model was made by Pauls Kalnenieks and I did the rigging.

Note: Skinning not completed yet :)

Rigging done :). This is part of a group project at Bradford University making an advert for the Haworth cat rescue. One of my jobs is the rigging so the 1st one ive done it the main cat.

This rig was adapted from a previous one i made for a friend. From the way this project is going it looks like this is going to be an awesome animation :)

This was made for the "Dare to be digital" application which me and a few Friends at Bradford university are applying as a group to make the game "Magmentum". The design is just to show how the track might work so who ever reads the application will get a clear idea of what we want to make. The actual end design might be completely different as the whole game will depend on the art style decided later on. Hopefully we will get into this competition as im sure we can make something great with such talented team members.
