JB Manatee Poses

Here are some images from his current rigging. I have focused mainly on his head and arms at this point. So for now he can’t swim. He now has FK and IK hands with the ability to blend between them.

Showing some hand movements.

His neck and head have been moved to a more upward motion. The joints there stack so the neck will move first then the head as the necks limit is reached.

This would be more like a pose where he was coming up for air. His mouth is also closed.

A little happy pose, he has a slight head twist he picked up from my dog Leeloo when she is concentrating hard and trying to figure out what you are saying.
