The only course you'll need to master rigging in Blender

Rigging = creating the controls and deformation structure to animate a 3d Blender model

Yes, it is a technical art, which is scary to a lot of people. So in this course, we'll start at the start...and go step by step.

You will learn all about bones and all the tools you will need to place them where you need them. 

You will also learn about parenting, space, the armature modifier and I will explain almost all of the bone constraints there are in Blender.
