Since we started our business, we have received many messages, comments, and emails asking us to provides tutorials. Unfortunately, we currently focus on bringing more characters in the future.
But there is still something else we can offer as 'tutorials' at this moment. We truly understand that sometimes it's really difficult for unprofessional people to identify the right resources. But with our experience, we'd like to share some high-end materials with you and hope they can do some help for you.
First of all, we'd like to clarify that the artists or any other third parties will be mentioned later have nothing to do with our business. Furthermore, none of our people have personal connections with them. If we have, we will absolutely let you know. And the suggestions we offered is absolutely subjective from our point of view. We have tremendous respect for these schools and artists! We sincerely wish there won't be any misunderstanding. We only want to recommend some information we believe it's useful for you. And the information is just provided as a reference. We should not have any liability for the choice you make.
In this blog, We'd like to talk about rigging first since this is our strongest specialty! We have to mention at the beginning, there is always no short cut to becoming professionals. So there won't be a single tutorial teaching you how to build a rig like ours. The learning path is always stepped by step.
For these who don't know, rigging can simply be understood as building mechanism functionalities for still characters models. For world class rigging TD, you have to be an expert level of programming. It's one of easiest jobs positions that can get you into the industry, but also one of the most difficult subjects to learn.
Here below are some online programs we think are quite good! All their instructors are artists or technical directors working in the top industry!
