    Research

    Today I've been researching into different league of legends animations:
    - run            (
    - emotes (danceing)       ()
    - recalls          ( )              ()

    I have decided to create a rock star recall, as it is more fitting to my character.
    Here are some reference's that I looked at:

    I have chosen Dex as my rig. He carries a large axe, which is very heavy but allows him to create heavy damage. 
    The rock star recall will have him conjure up a amplifier and turn his axe into a guitar. He will then go into a crazy guitar solo which will then transport him to a new location. When arriving back at the base, the guitar has turned back to the axe and he flips it back to the correct orientation and into an idle animation.

    I found this free guitar Obj, which I intend to rig for this project.

    Thumbnails

    Here's some quick thumbnails I drew of my rock star recall Idea.
    I will use this for my posing reference, when I come to animate the recall.

    Basic Rigging

    I have Modelled and rigged a amplifier. I have also quickly rigged a the Free guitar Obj. From that I created a stand-in Axe model which I have rigged as well.

    I have created a vanilla run cycle and I parented the stand in axe to the arm. 
    My plan after this is to add weight to the axe and add characterisation. 
    My character has a cocky attitude of a teenager jock who over estimates his abilities at times, but still performs a heavy blow with his axe, when motivated.
