Great intro to a simple type of character rig. Simple, clear well done. PLEASE Hu Sharir - could you do another tuotial on this - taking this a bit farther? Could you show how you'd rig this entire character? How many nulls you'd use - on which Puppet Pins to create a simple rig we could reuse? PLEASE! Thanks for the great tutorial! Duik is very complex and hard for me to learn - and I see that for my simple animation this is perfect. I hope you will do a follow up.
Nice and simple explanations, very good.
