๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Hi everyone! Today I present to you a full body rig of one of my favorite characters of my childhood: the Iron Giant!

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Ciao a tutti! Quello che vi presento oggi รจ un rig completo di uno dei miei personaggi preferiti dell'infanzia: il Gigante di Ferro!

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Oh what a mess! Okay, let's look into it a bit further step by step.

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Che casino! Okay, analizziamolo passo passo. 

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง  First, I placed the joints, starting from the pelvis one down to every body part, including the eyelids.

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Per prima cosa ho piazzato i joint, partendo da quello del bacino, fino a coprire ogni parte del corpo, incluse le palpebre.

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง I then created the controls, which I attached to the related joints with constraints. Notable ones are the eyelids controls, for example, whose animation is automatized by a slider I made.

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Ho poi creato i controlli che ho collegato ai rispettivi joints con dei constraint. Da evidenziare per esempio sono i controlli delle palpebre, cui animazione รจ automatizzata da uno slider.

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง I also made a switch for the FK/IK Controls for the arms. (Node editor below)

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Ho anche fatto uno switch FK/IK per i controlli delle braccia (qui sotto il Node Editor)

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Last but not least, I made some custom attributes for the Foot Control in order to make quick poses with the body part, such as Heel Lift, Toe Roll, Heel Roll and Toe Spin.
I then binded the joints to the skin.


๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Ultimo ma non meno importante, ho fatto degli attributi custom per il controllo del piede per facilitare l'utilizzo di quick poses, come Heel Lift, Toe Roll, Heel Roll e Toe Spin.
Ho poi fatto "bind skin" dai joints alla skin.
