Might seem a little bit of a noob question in the first picture where we can see the rig, there are gaps in the bones on the arms and legs, is there a major reason why that is better, does it get rid of them nasty bends u get some times?

Dave....There are actually bones where those gaps are...I just turn them off because they are IK....the bones you do see are FK...and it's not a noob question...rigging can be quite difficult sometimes...hope that answers your question....:)

Oh Heck

Since rigging has popped up in the conversation, how do you rig your feet? I have a general idea how to rig them, but is there an easier way to rig them so when you animate, say a walk, the feet stay right where you leave them even when moving the rest of the body. I notice now, I have to really fine tune the feet when I make adjustments in the torso and such, cause they swim around a little bit with motion from the body. Would be nice to find a method to have those feet stay right where you set them regardless of how you move the body.

Oh Heck....if you'd like I can send you the setup scene for my crime boss and you can hack it apart....just PM me and give me your email addy and i'll send it away....then you can animate with him too if you so desire....:)

Anyways..thanks for the comments...:)

The 'Assistant' Finished....

The 'Assistant' Rigged and tweeked the cheeks a little and threw him into a scene with Shang.....some textures may be coming...I want to actually give Feng like a paisley type design on his outfit but it'll only happen if I have the time....let hope...thanks for the comments...:)
