Animation Time! - Skeleton King Rig

Today's Inspiration:
That's My Character!
Everyone who has worked on a picture will feel that he made the personal contribution that caused the cartoon character to come alive on screen. ... "Well, I know he's my character because he's me; I did him!"... to all of them, he is their character! This is as it should be. Unless everyone feels this closeness to the end product, the dedication will not be there and the necessary care will not be taken to insure that the end result will be the finest anyone can do.
