Our Character Animations

Facial Animation services for 3D and 2D Characters

Lifelike Facial Expressions Animation

We can make realistic facial expressions for animated characters. Our expert team combines an understanding of facial anatomy with advanced animation techniques, including the use of blendshapes, which allow for precise control over facial movements.

Our animations also capture subtle eye movements and blinks that convey thought and emotion, while secondary actions like eyebrow movements and nostril flares add further realism.

Skeletal Animation Creation

Our team excels in skeletal animation, a technique that involves creating a digital skeleton and attaching it to a character’s mesh or skin. Each bone of the skeleton is linked to specific parts of the mesh, allowing for realistic movements and expressions.

Starting with rigging, where we define the bones and their connections within the character, using a combination of forward and inverse kinematics for naturalistic movements, so the characters can be believable.
