A deeper dive of character rigging from my earlier post, here are a few more advanced examples of character rigs I've created recently.

The run cycle was achieved by centering a circle with the lower body and parenting each foot on opposite sides of the circle. I rotated the circle, resulting in the feet rotating. It's an easy setup, similar to the older bicycle rig I've done.

The skateboarder rig was animated by blocking out key movements with a real skateboarder as a reference, then refining motion by easing keyframes and playing with the motion curves.
