Still working out the rig tweaks, but in the meantime here's a blend shape update. This GUI is assembled inside of Ramus's rig with a custom menu that comes up when you right mouse button click on his head ctrl.

Ramus is now a team project! Cool cat Chris DeVito is now on board and had already contributed a great deal to the project in terms of input on the new editing, rigging, and basically any technical problem we've faced so far.

We focused on taking the project that was left in May and revamped the whole short to create a more concise, and entertaining story with hopefully smarter shot choices as well.

Chris DeVito: Animator, Rigger, MEL Scripter, Tech Director

Danica Parry: Concept Artist, Modeler, Texturer, Creative Director

We will update work as it happens!

In the meantime here is a new concept of our main character, Ramus.
