Hey great people in the Blender community!

I'm Luciano an animator from Chile currently living in London, I've found that one of the problems of blender when it comes down to animation is the lack of fast and appealing rigs, so I decided to do something about it, though im no designer or modeler, I grabbed these classic maya rigs by created by Ugur Ulvi Yetiskin and Licensed under a permissive MIT license rigged them for blender with rigify and added as many nice features as I could.

I hope you'll enjoy practicing body mechanics with them!.

You can get the rigs here for for 1 pound:

Also the great @pierrick_picaut created a set of tutorials to learn how to do a run cycle with them. You can find it here.

Did I mention all of this is completelly free?, yes it is!, but if you buy us a beer or two, we'll be more than happy to take them!

Happy animating!


  1. I am a little confused. Is it now free and you can give what you want or does it cost?
    In the text it says free but the gumroad linked stuff costs money...

    • Yes sorry, it was my fault when i submitted it they where free for a couple of days, but but the time it was posted that wasnt the case anymore, though i made them as accessible as I could!

  2. Hi, I just downloaded the beefy rig but when I opened it only the skeleton shows up. How do make the object or materials show up. I also downloaded the picker and that works.


  3. Hi, I'm new to blender and I just downloaded the bony rig but when I opened the file only the curves where visible. How can I make the mesh visible ?
    Thank you
