This tutorial features Mrs. CtrlAultDel (Ellen) aka Ellen Awesome. Since I am more a 3ds Max user, she is now going to help you all learn Maya.
Ellen is an animation instructor and is in this video she demonstrates the proper way to set up a rig for creating wings for your 3D characters.
Ellen is also a plush toy designer. When she is not teaching, or doing her own 3D animations she is creating handmade plush toys. She creates plushies based off of Doctor Who, Marvel, DC and other popular nerdy things.
