Project Description

Rig and Animate a Monster Waving

3d472b0b

For the class project you'll be rigging a monster character in After Effects, and animating a simple looping wave. You can design and use your own character, or download and use one of mine below.

Project Steps:

  1. Create a Class Project and tell me how complex your character will be
  2. Share your character design process
  3. Post a screenshot of your fully rigged character in After Effects
  4. Post a final looping GIF of your character waving
