I just got back from teaching a two day workshop to Grad Students over at OSU’s Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design. It was my first trip to OSU and man that campus is huge. That football stadium is ginormous!
The faculty and students were great and said they all enjoyed the workshop. I made it a point to discuss the human skeletal structure and how we must balance using it for reference as well as “faking” all those complex motions in 3D. A lot of the students said they appreciated the time spent discussing how the skeleton does what it does. By the end of the second day, after we had drawn ik/fk switcheroos, a node based foot rig, simple FK spines and a fk/ik head, the joint placement stuff made even more sense to them.
I love getting people to see the importance of the foundations.
Thanks to all those who attended, please keep in touch!
