All of this stuff is amazing! I'm particularly interested in how you got the bear to jump but have its' feet stick solidly to the ground. Did you use Genoma, standard IK or IKBooster? Your work is very inspirational, would love it if you could make some tutorials
oh yes the bear is rigged with the standard skeleton from genoma. it was not planned to rig the bear at first because i only wanted to create the hair with fiber fx. it was about a job i was offered and only the hair was asked for. but then someone asked how the hair would look like if you animate the bear's mesh. so, yes, it's the standard four-legged rig from genoma and of course you can animate the handles of the feet so that they are firmly on the ground without penetrating the ground, etc. and so on.
