Got bones?

So the rigging of the Robot is going well.

595 bones and counting! Any bets on how many it’ll have by the end of it all?

    Just to be evil, don’t rig anything, not even IK. Let the animators do everything with FK, one bone after the other…ahahah (poor Francesco!)

    Working on rigging a robot myself actually, using additional bones to deform some loose wires hanging between joints. Blender rocks my socks!

    Animation tests? This looks awesome.

    I would never be able to have patience to rig such complex stuff. ><. Much respect to you guys.

    I only rig simple cartoon human mesh and even that I lose patience when bones started to be too many. ^^

    Oh God! I would never ever want to rig that thing, respect!

    Why there are so many bones for the lamps at the front?

    Usually is half of anything we had before understood that it could be done in a simpler way :P

    “595 and counting” – sounds like a couple too many. I’m sure I’ll understand when seeing animation tests and stuff. I wouldn’t like to have to fiddle with even the 58 bones though! xD

    I see there’s a lot around the head and ‘eyes’. I’m really intrigued to see how this little beasty animates.

    Keep rocking! :)

    On a rig, that we made, we reach an average of 260 bones per character but… 595!!, that’s too much.
