Work in progress thread made!
I've picked this voodoo character to start off the contest:
Going to build a rig for her this weekend and start a cycle. Fingers crossed it goes well or I will be back on the hunt for a new character!
Still need to add animation to the skirt, hair and shoulder parts but will wait until the cycle is closer to finished before I touch that.
@AnthonyAnimation made a great point about the fidgets in LOL's cycles so I might block something out to break this cycle up.
