If you like to check out the dragon rig, it’s now available on Cogswell’s website here.
This is continuation from the project I started on last summer with making rigs for the animation classes at Cogswell College.
After finishing up the Jaguar, I shifted my work onto the dragon named Cogswell (to loosely tie the character to the college’s mascot), which was modeled and textured by Robert Garcia. With the dragon’s design being pretty close to a quadruped I was able re-use most of the rig techniques from Toothy: IK/FK legs, FK tail, and a IK neck.
Things became more interesting when approaching the unique aspect of Cogswell: the wings.
