Flour Sack Rig - Spine Tips #4

September 21st, 2022

Welcome to a new Spine Tips video! This time we will learn how to rig a sack using techniques that you will find useful for any biped skeleton.

Animating a flour sack is a common task when learning 2D hand-drawn animation. It also serves as a great starting point for learning character animation. The sack is a simple rectangular shape so it's perfect to learn to pose and apply animation basics. If you can convey emotion with a simple sack, you will be able to do the same with a more complex character. This same hip-spine-shoulder setup can be used when building your other skeletons.

Follow along and create your own rig, then show off your animations! Please let us know on the Spine forum how you liked the video and what you’d like to see next.
