It was with this page that I realized I need to put some more work into my facial rigs. Sure, I can get a decent amount of emotion into my character's faces, but it's not quite as expressive as I would like. I can wrangle and wrestle their faces to show the emotion I want, but it could be more efficient. I'll probably do some experiments with building better facial rigs, but their implementation probably won't be for quite a few chapters down the line, considering the amount of work that will need to go into them.

Yeah, rigging a character, especially a face, to mimic relatively realistic looking actions and expressions is serious work. The upside though? You'll learn a lot in the process and it will become faster and easier to you eventually. :)

Indeedy! Heh, I remember my first facial rig. Pretty much all it could do was open/close the mouth, and move the eyeballs. Not even the area around the eyes, just the eyeballs in their sockets =p Now, I've got better lip movement, control over the cheeks, the nose, eyelids, eyebrows, etc... Could still use some more fine control though, so huzzah for more learning!
