A series of rigged models using constraints (not bones).

These are demo models from my new e-Book ("Death to the Armatures"). If the rigging on these models seems obvious to you, I recommend not buying the book:)

    These are awesome! Just today I was making handcuffs with constraints to aid their use, though nothing as awesome or complex as this. I eagerly await your ebook!

    I've actually done a lot of videos here:


    But for some people, books are easier to follow along with (you can go at your own pace and keep them around as a reference).

    Hey... yeah, you can totally download it to your computer. Or Ipad, Iphone, whatever... you just need the free app from Amazon (or most app stores).

    Just bought your Kindle book: Death to Armatures. Thanks for having so much of it on the look inside on Amazon, I learned enough just from that I decided it was worth $5 alone.

    I'm just passing by to relief some of my enthusiasm for your work! I'm a die hard fan! every single model you have put out is so inspiring and well crafted! I automagically get all kindsof crazy scenarios in my head when i look at them. It's a blessing to be able to analyze your files and learn from them! Thank you so much!!

    Years later and I still find myself referencing this file for knowledge on constraints. This is absolutely top tier educational work!
