07/29/2020: I have just updated the course with an awesome Dragon rigging tutorial. More updates coming soon.
Sneak Peek here:
Do you find rigging in Blender difficult? Tried and failed to build advanced rigs for your characters? Do you find it takes forever to create even a rudimentary rig?
You're not alone. Rigging is tough. It requires a high level of both artistic and technical skills.
Lucky for us Blender offers us an easier solution: a free addon called Rigify. It's not enabled by default, therefore many people don't even know it exists. And its' advanced features are hidden behind a slightly unintuitive interface. Thus few artists utilize it to its full potential.
Due to lack of quality information, a lot of Blender users think that Rigify is all about the Meta Rigs, especially the "Human Meta-rig". But these are nothing more than quick presets that solves a common problem: e.g. rigging a simple humanoid character.
Rigify offers tools that allow you to solve less trivial rigging problems. When you learn how to use Rigify properly you can rig pretty much anything. To get an idea of the characters we'll rig together in this course, see the images attached above.
Build your Rigs from Lego Blocks
Rigify is a modular rigging system. It provides the artist with easy to understand building blocks like legs, arms, spines, tails, and many more. Using those you can rig almost any character.
Traditional rigging, on the other hand, deals with abstract and complicated concepts like constraints, drivers, local vs world translations, matrices etc. The truth is, most artists won't have the time to learn manual rigging at an advanced level. Thanks to Rigify, we don't have to.
So Rigify is pretty awesome.
The only problem is figuring out how to use it.
➡This is where this course comes in.
You'll learn how to rig any character in the following three modules: Rigify Basics, Rigify Video Manual, and Advanced Rigify Sessions.
is where you'll learn the most important aspects of Rigify. These are the chapters you'll get as soon as you purchase:
Intro to Blender Armatures
Overview of the Rigify Workflow
Rigging with Meta Rigs (biped and quadruped)
Extending the meta rigs and avoiding bad practices
The Rigify Building Blocks, aka Rig Types
Creating a custom Meta Rig from scratch: Alien Character
I want to release this module for free eventually but with this offer you can get it right now! Progress: 95% (the information is all there, I am just finalizing the video editing.)
is now available! It's for people who want to understand every single option you find in Rigify. Progress: 100%
are also being worked on. In this part, we'll rig several complex characters together. I'll definitely include the Dragon and Two-headed Ogre you see above. These characters allow me to demonstrate creative and unorthodox usage of the Rigify tools. I am planning at least one more session. I will consider user feedback and decide the exact content later.
Dragon (Now Available)
In this session, we'll rig a dragon using Rigify. For the face, we'll create a custom rig and then integrate it into the Rigify rig using one of the most advanced features of the addon. This is a workflow that you can find literally NOWHERE else!
Ogre (coming soon!)
As I get closer to completing the advanced chapters, the price will gradually go up. If you don't want to pay $45+ in the future, get the course now!
⚠️A few warnings before you buy:
If you purchase now you'll only get early access to the Basics course. Manual and Advanced Sessions will come later. "Basics" alone will give you a very solid base on which to build custom rigs.
I am working as fast as I can but creating good video tutorials takes time. I expect to have more content in the coming weeks and months. But there is no set release date for "Manual" and "Advanced Sessions"!
This course will be updated regularly. Make sure to set up your profile such that you get notifications for product updates.
This is a MINOR update
The only thing that was changed is a WRONG link to my new Discord server that was embedded in the videos. If you have a slow internet connection then here is a CORRECT direct link to the Discord server. https://discord.gg/YFH5HUv If you have a fast internet connection you can go ahead and download the updated file Module3_Dragon_08062020.zip

Amazing tutorial. Very in depth lessons and very clear explanations. I really like how it is structured. You not only discover and practice all the amazing features that Blender Rigfy provides but you also learn the logic behind all of it which is just fantastic.
