There are some things in life I just can’t wrap my head around . .
I’ve decided to release all 65 character rigs from my short film The External World as a free download. You can use and modify them in any way you like as long as it’s for a non-commercial purpose. Showreels, short films, indie games, all that stuff is cool - just give credit. If it’s web based - include a link to my site.
I’m releasing these without a how-to (or support of any kind) but it should be very straight forward. They are extremely low-weight and easy to animate with, all are compatible with versions of Maya after 2010. Extra controls are available from the channel box when you select the head/hands/feet controls. Most if not all have FK/IK switching. Some have facial controls, others don’t. These were custom built for whatever scenes they appeared in, but they have a lot of range and potential to do other stuff.
If you make something cool - tweet it at me, or post it on my facebook page. Excited to see what you guys come up with!
