1. In this tutorial series, I go over how to set up a series of Shape Keys to be driven by Armature Bones, followed by setting up controls for a Mesh Deform modifier, and finishing up with some custom Bone Shapes.

    In this final part of the Advanced Face Rig series, I show you all the Custom Bone Shapes I made and how they work, and then we jump in and build a Deform Mesh that completely encompasses the original Edward mesh, then apply it to the Armature. Next we go ahead and add the Deform Mesh Modifier to the original mesh (Edward) and the eyeballs, and then bind them to the Deform Mesh. We set up a couple of shapekeys on the Deform Mesh, showing how it can control the original mesh, and finally we also add some more control Bones to be used solely with the Deform Mesh.

    In this Part Two, we create an Armature, and using that, we set up Bones as Drivers for the Shape Keys we created in Part One, and add some extra constraints to keep the control bones going exactly where we want. Changing up the original outline a bit, we go ahead and work on some custom Bone Shapes for our rig.

  3. In this Blender 2.5 tutorial series, I go over how to set up a series of Shape Keys to be driven by Armature Bones, followed by setting up controls for a Mesh Deform modifier, and finishing up with some custom Bone Shapes.

    In this Part One, we create all the shape keys we'll be needing for the rig, using Left/Right Vertex Groups to distinguish between each side of the face (smile left, smile right, etc).
