Default first rig

Animation is soon I hope. No textures, and this is the proxy layer (smooth face, rough body). I am just going to keep doing animations with this guy to learn.

I am trying

Red face xray

Here is an xray of the locators and handles, etc... By the way, what is the best process to keep the elbows form fillping? I havea contrained pole vector but it sill shakes when I bend it? Should I try an orient and aim?

Oh yeah, what is the best way to attach geometry to a handle so you can grab it easier?

thanks!

Reverse foot is fine, but I am having a problem with my expressions.

Whenever I add an expression to my pelvisControl node, my feet come off of the ground when I lift one knee up. I have grouped my root to itself and named it pelvisCOntrol, and then when I add a simple trranslate expression, my feet lose their groundedness? Also, what is the best way to attach a primative to a handle so it moves, and controls the handle for easier visibilty? Any help is apreciated. I am deepin the trax editor now I have learned a lot of Maya, and it feels great!
