Here's another nice free rig to experiment with. It's non-realistic, and aimed at studying animation.

I'm here to give some good news for all the blenderheads. Its about a Rig that was developed by our friend Mangojambo (Moraes Jr) ItÂ´s seems to be a quite useful tools for those who want to study animation with a good rig or just want to do some animation tests , the rig looks awesome, everything cleverly organized, you have IK/FK switch, and some simple (and really peculiar) expression control well needless to say I suggest you to download and test it.
I miss the link to download, or it do not work.
You're right :( I'm pulling the article until this is sorted out.
And we're back! The file has been re-uploaded. Enjoy!
here is a new version with english post too: http://mangojambo.wordpress.com/2009/05/04/reegie-11/
Link updated, thanks!
didn't somebody try to model an animationmentor-like character and got contacted to take it down earlier?
Yop, it looks quite similar to the animationmentor rigs. And well, From my experience its a bad idea to make look-alikes! (read the BA-thread above).
outch: Catch it while it last, because, last time animationMentor got kind a sad.
But, well... I've modeled myself a character like this, a biped, etc. Just to for training,
really, animationMentor characters are really cool and inspiring.
Thinking about it, if its just for personal use, who cares ?!
Nice work, congratulations!
it looks a bit like stu from animationmentor ;-), time to quickly download....
congratulations on your character! works very well!
reegie if you want to have new friends in my blog: tonibuenavida.blogspot.com or elblog.ddediseno.com you can download Paloman, BotijoMan and ColaBola, Free Blender characters ready to animate!
So reegie not be alone!
Indeed, this does look like a very close copy of AM's Stu. AM don't tend to mind rigs that are similar to theirs, as long as there are some clear differences - I think this one will probably fall on the wrong side of the line. I wouldn't expect this to remain available for long...
yeah AM fights for their individuality :) Downloading.....
Although I'm all for protecting your designs to avoid confusion I think how 'simpler' the models get, bow more generic they get and might all start to look alike. So looking at it from that perspective it's borderline inviting other people to make similar characters even if they never seen the originals :)
Well we now have quite some number of rigs of varying complex models and sometimes I wonder why one would use a 'stick model' if there are models like Elephants Dream available. hmm, surely one could just render the bones or something :D
Impossible to download! All I get is a nearly unstoppable stream of popups!
pls rigging model send me
