hey amrit, neat animation really works well after the offsets u've added, now is this norman rig which u have used or some othere one, i've been trying real hard to get this rig, just can't get anywhere, can u pls temme where did u download this rig from.

Thanks for the kind words. Yeah, he is Norman. Sadly, its not a free rig, and its not available for a free download. I got it from a friend of mine, who was taking Pixar classes at the Academy of Arts University. He just gave it to me to try it out. It was a long time ago, and at that time, I didn't even know about it. heh... He is a younger brother of Hogan (the great!):) You can download Hogan from http://www.mothermushroom.com/

You'll get almost all the facial controls in that! After all, he is the BIG brother! :)

Happy animating!
