I have this Bone Rig that I don't know how to rig. Think of it like a dog ear. Here's a picture.


I'm trying to figure out how to rig it so that the bones on the right side are the control bones. The lower right one is the one that moves the lower part of the ear, while the upper right one influences the middle. Here's some other pictures to show what I'm looking for:



Someone know how to do this?

    $\begingroup$ you could give an IK constraint to Ear4 and Ear6 with a Chain Length of 2 and the 2 horizontal bones as Targets. Perhaps add some Pole Target as well. I'm not sure that it would be the best way to rigg dog ears that said... (Spline IK?) $\endgroup$ – moonboots Aug 23 '19 at 17:10

  • $\begingroup$ Not sure pole target is needed, should try without first $\endgroup$ – lemon Aug 23 '19 at 17:21
  • $\begingroup$ yes perhaps the pole target isn't necessary, but actually do you want to rig a dog ear or do you want to use this particular armature, because another armature good be better for this purpose $\endgroup$ – moonboots Aug 23 '19 at 17:23
  • $\begingroup$ @RBlong2us, stick the pole head to the bone's tail $\endgroup$ – moonboots Aug 23 '19 at 17:23
