- Added Wings.

- Turned Fluttershy into a vampire.

2nd Animation Test:




I’ve been getting a lot of questions about this model. So let me answer some of them:


Q: What software are you using?
A: Maya and Mental Ray.


Q: Are you going to share the rig?
A: Not right now. Maybe in the future.


Q: Does it work with Source Film Maker?
A: This rig was made with a lot of plugins and tools that are exclusive to maya, so unfortunately, it’s not compatible with any other software.


Q: Can you teach me how to rig a character?
A: Start by watching some training courses online. I started with Digital Tutors, some of the lessons are really basic, but it’s enough to get you going. After you learn how to make your own basic rig, you should start studying some more advanced rigs:

Download it, break it apart and learn how it works. 


Q: What plugins are you using?
A: http://www.braverabbit.de/ this guy makes a lot of amazing plugins, I’m using SHAPES and QuadrupedRigger.
http://www.animschool.com/ check out the malcom rig and the AnimSchool Picker, It makes the animation process a lot faster.

Three months ago I finished those mlp rigs, and I tried to animate them. The result was bad…

I realized that my models were horrible. So I decided to redo everything from scratch.

This time I embraced the cartoony style of the show and everything is looking much better.

Here’s my first animation test with the new rig:
