Steve and the Alien AS Series: 3-3: Animating the Alien with Bones

This video will be very similar to Lesson 3-1 in which we applied a bone layer to Steve.  I will cover creating the bone layer, drawing out the bones, binding the layers, applying patch layers and tweaking the limbs.  By the time the lesson is over we will have rigged the Alien up to move his limbs freely.

The other benefit of using a bone layer is that it groups all of the character’s layers together, allowing us to easily move and re-size the Alien without fear of missing a part.



  1. When I originally commented I appear to have clicked the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
    from now on every time a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment.
    Is there a way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
