Share on Social Media

The Gnomon Workshop has released Creating Stylized Facial Rigs for Production in Maya, a guide to creating professional facial rigs for cartoon-style animated characters.

The workshop, recorded by Sony Pictures Animation character TD Hector Abraham Torres, comprises over four hours of video training.

A detailed guide to creating facial rigs for cartoon-style character animation in Maya
During the workshop, Abraham Torres sets out a range of techniques for creating a stylised facial rig suitable for use in animation for film, TV, games or VR.

He begins by introducing the basics of character rigging, and the importance of understanding real-world facial anatomy, even when working with cartoon-style characters.

The workshop covers the sculpting techniques Abraham Torres uses to create blendshapes for a facial rig, and his tips for creating facial topology that ensures realistic facial deformation when animated.

He also sets out how to create a professional control UI for facial rigs, with the user interface created during the workshop available as a downloadable project file alongside the tutorial videos themselves.

The head model used throughout the workshop – a vampire character created by Makar Malicki – is available from the ArtStation Marketplace, and costs $7.
