Let’s Repeat Anatomy AGAIN!

Alright guys,

I found this stuff out all on my own during this thing at my college called a “brown bag”. It’s just a presentation for people in any art major. Anywho, I was reading my Maya tutorial(I mean, I was definitely listening to the presentation) and I came across a section called “Joints and IK Splines”. I thought ‘why not! Davie needs a skeleton to move after all’! So, here is your way on making a skeleton for your character! Here we go:

So, what you need to do first, is open your character up in the program, or make your own character if you haven’t done that yet. Next, what you need to do is click on the square button that looks like a see-through cube(it’s right above the window where you see your character). The thing you just pressed on shows the make-up of your character. Basically, it’s a skeletal make-up. However, if you look, there is no skeleton! Just lines and the geometric make-up of your character. Now, this is where the joints come in play.

You need to let your character be able to move! So, you go to the “animation” tab(the one that is near “toon”, and is still in the window. It’s not above the window where file is), and you click on the thing that looks like three circles attached by two lines. That, is the Joint tool. Click on that, and then double click it where you can see the four panels of viewing your character.

Once you double click it, it will give you a panel where you can switch up the defaults on it. CLICK THE IK SPLINE BUTTON IN THERE! If you don’t do it in the panel, you need to do it manually, and trust me, it is not fun.

Now you’re ready to go! So, click on the bottom of your character. This is Joint one. Click everywhere you want to add where you want the character able to move. When you are done, you hit “enter” and WHAPOW! You made a skeleton! now you can move any Joint you want from the animation tool.


I will teach you how to make your character look like their falling, as soon as I get my character, Davie, to do that!
