A concept that allows for an intuitive and effective workflow: Bring your animated mesh in shape by implanting other shapes under the surface. Experienced character skinners know about all the typical problem areas. Instead of adjusting countless cryptic settings you just take another mesh and push it against the skin. The elbow should have the distinct shape of a bone pressing against the skin? Just insert one. The buttocks deflate when the character bends the legs? Implant spherical shapes that keep them in place. Or create entertaining special effects like a mouse sneaking around under the carpet, pulsing veins or even a parasite moving under the skin.
