Setting up a skeleton and skinning it with Maya

Rigging and skinning, as I like to do it; aka the Wright way, as my grandmother Wright would say. Many frequent questions about skeleton creation, for limbs, spines, and skinning. Most of this is straight out of the box maya. A little pinch of ngSkinTools covered as well.

More snow kiting adventures

Been breaking in the GoPro a little more and practicing for Mille Lacs March crossing. Had some great powder recently with lots of cold weather to keep it nice and fluffy. Some days were mellow and 15m kite, others were 9m and out of control. Threw some Aphex Twin on there cause I like it and it gives a nice feeling of what I get out there.

 

For a little more fun here’s the HD version:
