Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the G head, part of Rigging a Face in Flash Professional.
We have two final major head directions left to do, the F and the G.…The G is like a mirror image of the C profile, and the F will be a mirror image…of the three-quarters rear on the other side. And I'd rather do the G first and…work from this side back in towards the middle. It's the same workflow that we…followed on the outward side of the project, so let's do that, and it's also…better to have a profile than a three-quarters rear view I find.…So let's create a little reference layer that we can use based on this.…
So what I'm going to do is select all of these layers, make sure nothing is…Padlocked, and go Ctrl+C for copy.…Let's make a new layer down here, and I'm going to put in a blank keyframe on…this layer, and go Ctrl+Shift+V to paste in place.…Can't see much right now, so let's hide this, and let's put this layer in…Outline Mode, and then let's flip it horizontally, Modify > Transform > Flip…Horizontal, and let's check this against our reference image down here.…
So I'll just nudge it using the arrows until it lines up, pretty close.…
