For this week, I was assigned to rig the scarecrow proxy. I conferred with Ryan to address any issues that developed making it an iterative process to learn from.
The rig features IK legs to allow for easier walk animations
To add secondary animations, the proxy bird was rigged to move its bed up and down and rotate its head. The scarecrow's head was also set up to decompress that could be used to emphasize a bounce in the scarecrow's step.
