HippyDrome’s Art of Moving Points
*We are officially the download source for this model from Brian
This model is a good starting point to learn about topology needed for good articulation and deformation.
Note that the spans are ruffly laid out and could further polishing to improve the final deformations.
Usage: This mesh is free to download and use with proper attribution to HippyDrome.com

Included in this zip file are both Maya and FBX files to cover a large variety of software.
Kitestring online, a new project from Rich Hurrey (Character TD by way of Pixar ) has launched and while his main content is his Rigging Master Course he is working with Brian to bring the “Art of Moving Points” to a larger audience and make it fully searchable on the Kitestring platform. (coming soon).
Be sure to check out HippyDromes Art of Moving Points on iTunes for an in depth look at deformation layers and topology for rigging the face and our New Face Rigging 101 course to understand how to make these ideas work in Maya.

We have had others report this as well, make sure that you don’t have any pop-up blockers on for the site then it should allow it to download.
