Picture of head

I'm trying to rig a character with this head. I tried to find a tutorial for this, but the only thing I could find is shape for shape keys, the only problem is that I don't know how to deform it to a closed position without it looking weird. I'm asking for either

  1. a easy way to deform it to a closed position while also being versatile enough to create unique expressions


  1. another method that works better and is easier than shape keys.

1 Answer 1


I found out that I could set the 3d cursor to the center of the sphere and make it the transform pivot point. Which allowed me to just use rotation
