‘Slender’ character face rig demo

facial animation showing progress at using one rig for two characters.
By adding an “eyebrow thickness” control, and changing the normal & texture maps, the one model, set of blend shapes, and rig, can be used for both the protagonists in our short film.

By showing the face rig controller, this video should also be helpful in showing our animators what expressions can be made. The eyebrows and texture on the elder character still need a bit of editing, but this can be done on the normal & texture maps, and shouldn’t affect the rig.
