Hello, I've got alittle ways to go w a little "monster" character I'm working with. Right now I'm just trying to get my eyebrows to move with my actual face and right now it just seems I'm moving my head. Not sure if this is all because of the unorthodox "head" of my character or what. I've done some research but have hit a wall. I'm a bit of a noob so I'm assuming my heirarchy will have more than one error but ANY information I can get on what I'm doing wrong starting with the eyebrows would be EXTREMELY welcome.. Thank you so much..

Hi Bob,

 

It would have been nice to see what your rigging looks like. A lot depends upon the layer and nesting structure of your character. Here is one of my unusual characters. The eyegrows are independent and also move with the head.

I'm not good at English.
So you may not understand your intentions correctly.

 

1) Make a dummy face layer and rig it like a normal puppet.

2) If the eyebrows move without any problem, hide the dummy face layer.

I just downloaded your puppet file and as you know they are working great!

Thank you very much..

I will look more into the dummy face layer strategy. I was unaware of this tactic. It seems to be a perfect solution to my problem.. Thanks again for taking the time to help me
