Rigging a Cartoon Bird Wing

Recommended Posts

I am having trouble figuring out the best way to rig the wing of a cartoon bird.

Functionally, it doesn't really have to fly, but I DO want it to be able to point, the equivalent of an Index Finger feather while talking, and then be able to  fold back its wings onto its body (on the top sides of the back) when not in use.


I am having trouble getting the wings to bend correctly, I feel like maybe they have an extra joint more than human arms do? Do I need a separate POLE besides the elbow?


Attached is a skeleton bird I am using for ref.


Also, would you rig this in a T pose to start, or differently?


Thanks for any help
