I have a long way to go before this model is rigged properly

A quick maya render of the rig

I have been trying to learn how to rig the little monster character I started building and its clear from the start that I was never meant to be a rigger.

There are a million mistakes with his rig.  Controls fly all over the place and the whole thing is generally a mess.  Still I want to keep at it since its it would be fun to be able to make things that can move.  Its going to take a lot of time.  Until I really understand how constraints work nothing is going to moving anywhere fast.  For now, I am going to need a lot of aspirin and a few stiff drinks.

I have a very very very long way to go…
