    Skinning Cats and Dogs Using Muscle Deformations

Session/Category Title:   Fuzzy Creatures



    This sketch describes the techniques used for deforming animal models of cats and dogs. The process is anatomical in nature, using a rigid skeleton upon which muscles are placed. The deformations of the muscles are driven by the animation of the skeleton and in turn used to drive the deformation of a skin model. The process is entirely interactive, and the artist is given numerous controls to alter the output of the simulation.
