The Star Giraffe
This sporty biped giraffe counts with IK and FK controls for all his limbs, a hybrid spine, a ribbon neck, a jaw, a tongue and snout controls and a hell of cardio resistance.
The animation was made by Roman Zabludovsky (linkedin.com/in/roman-zabludovsky-86236a182/).
This “quadruped” has the whole deal: Front and back legs, tail with optional dynamic switches and group controllers. It also has IK/FK hybrid spine and neck. The wings can function in either IK or FK mode for any situation and they also have separate auto-fold controllers for the fingers and the whole wings.

Pinto The Rooster
Pinto is a tough guy with a lot of personality. He has a very stretchy body with two waddles that follow it for ease of use but can also be shaped if needed. He has group controls for all of his wing’s and tail’s feathers and also for his fingers.
For his facial, he has an animatable crest and beak, and also a smart eyeball setup for looking around and also seamlessly controlling the size of the iris and pupil, blinking and the shape of his brows, all with simple transform, scale and rotation attributes.
This prop rig was used for a live action comercial. The rig has FK and IK controls to manipulate the bag and its corners. It also has a main controller to rotate all FK controls at once for fast and easy animation. The rig has separate twisting controls so the animator can keep the rotation of the main controllers clean while also getting the twisting.
Also, the bag has a stretch and squach control that also orients the bag to the direction the controller moves to and can open and shape the top part of the bag as well.

The WeirdWood Series
These three characters are video game compatible and are capable of doing a wide variety of very dynamic poses. Additionally, thanks to the Perseus Auto Rig, they have a lot of flexibility in their faces and are capable of making every emotion the situation demands of them.
The WeirdWood Characters were modeled and textured by Estudio Shout for Relish Productions.
Daigon is a lava monster from the very depths of the earth. His body is made of bone, rock and fire.
This rig’s specialty is, of course, its facial. With a combination of joints and blendshapes, Daigon can make a very wide variety of expressions and even speak. He has a facial UI with movable and hideable menus for ease of use and to reduce the clutter, as well as controllers on his face for more general and big deformations.
His demo has him perform a lip-sync with audio from the dragon Smaug from “The Hobbit.”
