The Couch Rig

Over the summer of 2010 I modeled a character to practice rigging on. The rig will be what I use to animate for my animation reel, if I ever decide that I want to end up making that.

This is a still of the Robo_Rig_v1.0 as I've titled it.

After I started rigging him I decided I wanted to have him jump onto a couch on a sequence in the robot's apartment. To make the couch squash and stretch and move in the cartoony way I wanted, I decided to rig a simple couch I modeled. I went a little extreme with its emotional range. But I suppose an expressive rig is a good thing, haha. Even if its a couch. Well anyway, here it is:
