Great news – the work on a 3D model of Ivan is done and it is available for download! In the published blend-file you can find high-poly and low-poly meshes and all textures included. Please check the download link at the bottom of this post.
I have created this character as part of my work on 3D teaser for the Morevna Project. The total work on this model took two months. I have used BlenRig 5 – the awesome Auto-Rigging and Skinning system for Blender by Juan Pablo Bouza. It is a great addon for creating bone systems of humanoids characters. For me it was a good chance to learn how it rig works.
The character’s jacket was an special challenge. For its rig I have used a brand-new “Bendy bones” feature. This feature is not available within the current stable versions of Blender (yet), so please make sure to install the latest development version.
