    Great course! very detailed and well-explained. I like that Pierrick mentions which is the most complex mechanism we've made and that we're not going to be able to recreate everything first try without looking at references; that makes it very reassuring and motivates me to learn more.

    I'm an 3D animator, I'm always had issues making Rigs myself, mostly because there was not any readily available guides on how to do it properly... I've tried Auto rigs Which Don't always work depending on the character or model I'm using. This Course is a god Send. I'm currently working on the 2nd chapter, and I cant wait to translate what I learned to the current characters I'm working with.

    I can't tell you how Ecstatic I was when you showed how to Do a FK-IK Switch without programming. Been trying to figure out how to do that for months haha. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge with us!

      Wow, what a blast to read your words.
      So Heart warming.

      I'm happy you've enjoyed the course.
      Thanks for your support.

    A golden mine of information, i am only at the end of chapter 2 and as a beginner in rigging, i could perfectly understand the concepts and your workflow is efficient.I could integrate the concepts easily directly into my own rig and already thing about other kind of mechanisme which are possible with some technique. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I could not wait the final video to rate this course because it has already teach me so much to win my 5 stars rating. And about your accent, somme english mistakes but i did not care since i am a frenchy too lol . Very good course , i recommend and will recommend it .(Pierrick tu devrais proposer une version sous titrée pas des sous titres à rajouter,quand à la musique, bein t'as fait ce que t'as pu il y a juste la musique l'épique qui met une drôle d'ambiance j'ai l'impression d'attendre un boss de niveau par moment du coup ça fait décalé à l'ambiance studieuse des autres musiques sinon c'est top et le contenu est irréprochable tu vas vite et tant mieux,j'ai du faire des rewind à certains passage tricky ou j'ai loupé une info ou l'autre mais elle y est.) Donc bravo.

    Excellent amount of information and sample files. Totally recommended if you're interested in rigging.
    Compared to "humane rigging" (very good resource freely available on youtube or in blender cloud with sample files), Art of effective rigging has a lot more information and samples, and I liked the way everything is organized.

    Mostly easy to follow. Being a rigging course, you're bound to get lost at some point. If that happens you can refer to the sample files, which are very organized.

    There are subtitles for the videos in case you have problems following the instructor.

    Y'know what! I am going to give this 5 stars before even starting the course! *****
    For the simple reason, as a person who is brand new to blender (and 3D) I've declared this "national rigging week" for myself lol and after watching a myriad of youtoob vids and scouring the blender artists website etc.. it always seemed to lead back to this course and I'm dedicated to understanding this to the best of my abilities.

    And as far as the language barrier thing I'm reading about I look at it differently, it is also a primer if I ever make it over to France hahaha, so there!
    I will keep you posted on my success!

    • Pierrick PICAUT 6 months ago

      I like your method 😂.
      Hope it will still deserve these 5*

      I think the subtitles will help you if you find my lovely froggy accent to strong 😉.

      Enjoy !

    Totally love it!! my rigs so far were always as easy as possible and I'm not a very good rigger one might say. I've done some other tutorials mainly not for blender but always kept it and my animations as simple as possible. This guide has shown me new ways to rig in blender that I'd never have thought of. Totally great systems that allow for a much smoother and easier way to handle the rig which in the end moves much more natural with less "posing" steps!
    That's when rigs actually start making fun I guess (after you set them up^^).
    And I haven't even yet finished the course so far. So don't know what great things are in the second part ;)
    The content is totally about a humanoid//biped character, no animals no anything else, but the systems that you learn here can be easily transferred. It opened my brain to a new way of rigging (regarding systems like footroll, eyes, etc). Many "systems" can be transferred also to other non-biped characters. It's like learning a new way of thinking towards creating rigs. Thank you so much for sharing such huge content for a very tiny price!

      Hi Oli,
      Thanks for your kind words. I’m happy you did get the click and rigging now looks easier to you and more comprehensive. That was the goal of this course.

    This is a very well-paced and thoughtful rigging course for Blender 2.8. I have been rigging in Blender for about two years now, and this taught me a better approach and tips for character rigging.

    Highly recommended for those who want to have a stronger understanding of rigging in Blender that can be applied for things like video games.

    Hi Pierrick,

    First and foremost, thank you for creating this course. Sadly, I would have to agree with Tim's comments mentioned above, however in your defense I do realize that English is not your native language, but at the same time this does not mean that I did not enjoy the course.

    Thank you again for sharing your knowledge on rigging and for taking the time to compile a step by step learning flow

    Take care.

    Kind Regards,

      Hi Bennie,

      Did you see there were subtitles?
      Thanks for taking the time to review.
