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.
Forgot about these.
Part 1 of some character layouts from my Adventure Time episode. Cartoon Network asked for these last year for something. The drawings on the left are copied from my boards, tho obviously these are all existing characters. I did the 3d modeling & morph targets. The rigging was done by Parzival Rothlein and Mark Feller at Studio Soi in Germany. They did an incredible job mixing the different shapes and adding crazy deformers on top of everything.
i wanna play this soooooo bad.
