Part 2: Rigging the Red Ninja

To accompany "Red Ninja Cubie™ Part III: Rigging & Inverse Kinematics"

Once the main mesh is modelled (modeled) and textured (part I & part II shown above) it next needs to be rigged by adding an "Armature". This is the element that controls the way the mesh deforms and articulates, later used for animation.
