Here's a little eyelid rig based on the ideas of Pooby's cool facial setup.
Basically it's a nurbs sphere (named Eyelid_Deformer_Surface) with a bunch of nulls constrained to the surface that pulls the eyelid (Eyelid_Mesh) mesh around when you animate the End U parameter of the surface.
You can also animate the surface to squash'n stretch the eyelid as needed.
Its probably not that neatly finished, but the concept is there and it works pretty well.
Thanks to Pooby for the inspiration!
Mike

This a great tutorial so far, but I seem to be having issues with video 4.

Thanks!

You're right. It should be fixed now (I hope)
(More than 3470 Page Views and you're apparently the first one who got to Part 4/mentioned the shameful link error 8-})
