What Did YOU Do to Poor Mancandy? (Win a Prize!)


ddwagnz_mancandy_trouble2-1.pngHere's a thread that I particularly enjoyed over at the BlenderArtists forums: ddwagnz has created a number of images, all featuring the well-known Mancandy rig by Bassam Kurdali. Mancandy is an amazingly flexible rig and if you haven't tried it yet, I think you should!

Anyway, the reason I enjoyed the thread is that all ddwagnz's images in which Mancandy poses are either slightly naughty (work-safe, don't worry), or awkward for Mancandy. This led me to wonder: what did YOU do to poor Mancandy?

Submit your work here; I'll send a free copy of Tony Mullen's 'Introducing Character Animation with Blender' to the creator of the funniest image (to be determined by the audience here). Deadline is next thursday.

Have fun!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. cool! bart this awesome, thanks for doing it.
    btw, the latest prerelease is pretty much final; the only reason I haven't made the announcment is I'm working on a demo video (and haven't decided on a nice (open) license to use- don't worry, it'll be something as permissive as I can find.

  2. hahahahahha, im surprised this made blendernation guys!
    i log into coders and get told i am mentioned on blendernation,
    All thanks go to Bassem for the exellent rig!

  3. Chris: you're image didn't show up, try maybe hosting it somewhere (like photobucket) and then providing a link.


  4. @Chris: interesting, Mancandy's head wants to stay up, looks like Mancandy is actually tired a lot ... but some other side of him just wants to go away, maybe just want to lay down, but his so tired ... nice concept ....


  5. @squareline - re:your still: Holy Smoke! Would you believe I actually made the exact same image of Mancandy balancing on one hand, then decided not to post it!

    That's freaky!
