I made one of the cartoon animals in Maya and I also decided to rig it. I picked the bunny as it looked the simplest.
All done in about 2 hours.
Step by step- I curled the ears with a lattice. I also ended up using HumanIK to rig as making my own rig ended up being too annoying.
For practice I drew animals in different styles with different levels of humanisation.
I also drew different reptiles, amphibians and water animals in my sketchbook 🙂
For summer work we were told to make short animations and I made a quick head turn as i still need to get better at them.
(two different speeds)
