We recently undertook a commission to produce a bespoke armature for Ruby Ruth Dolls. They make some really fun characters, which are going to look great animated.

Their characters feature large eyes and the brief required these to be movable. As a result the final armature is already full of character.

Here is the armature alongside the character that it is going to become.

The final character is going to be quite weighty, so we made a heavy duty rig to be used with it. To ensure maximum strength, we employed parallel joints:

Here is the finished rigging system.

The armature and rigging system were made using a combination of custom made components together with components from our ProPlus and Standard Armature kits.
