Glib Rig for Animschool

I rigged this character completely from scratch for the Intro to Rigging course in Animschool. The model was provided by Animschool.

It is my intention to animate a scene with this rig, so I am optimizing it for cartoony animation. For the moment, the expressions are animated with blendshapes controlled by the facial GUI to the left of the head. There is a joint for the jaw, and I plan on adding joints for brows, cheeks, and lips down the line. 

This was my first rig completely from scratch. I've learned a ton in the process and found that rigging is more fun than I ever thought it could be!
