Designer: Johan Borgstrom
*Even though Johan is just testing out different rigging techniques in these short animation clips, these robots caught my eye!

Project: The Bot
The focus in this project was to dive deeper into the rigging process. I have an obsession of hydraulic systems and mechanical movements so I wanted to play around with that to. Like the Petbot project this is an ongoing project where I try out new concept or techniques. One of the challenges of this character was to design and rig the leg. I wanted to rig a leg with a FK – IK switch with on screen controls that were easy to animate and that would look interesting. quoted by Johan
