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.

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.
