I've taken many influences from so many people, so thanks to everyone that has ever contributed anything to do character setup to the web!

My main inspiration for this was from Christopher Crouzet's rigging reel. I found it absolutely incredible. His setups were done in XSI, and I thought I would see how I would do trying to mimic his setup in Maya - in particular his bendy setup, however, his setup is more advanced! :)

Feel free to email me if you encounter any problems or have any suggestions/questions!

You can find me at mlefevre123@googlemail.com or my blog at https://mattlefevre.blogspot.com/

If you do by chance use the rig in any animations, I would be really grateful if you could mention my name in the credits.

Thanks
