hello all. I'd like to work on my character animation skills a bit and I'd like to bypass the modeling and rigging phase. I remember ages ago Jeb provided one of the best ones Ive ever used. it was basically a 3d version of this guy.


it had a dace animation and everything.

does anyone know of a nice pre rigged model like that I can use to practice with? it doesn't need to be too fancy, simple yet effective is all.

I'd love it if it also had some facial controls though.  I'm going to try and grab some audio from a sitcom or something and animate to that. its something Ive always been meaning to do but never got around to.

Try using "Makehuman" - its free and easy to use - you'll have to rig it with bones, though

Roygee, the point is, he's trying to avoid the rigging stage, not necessarily the modeling stage.
Kyle, try this link I think that's the figure you're referring to (there are actually a few great rigged models in here you could use!)

ahh, there's that possible guy from jeb.  this should do for now.  though I'm still open to similar model with facial controls so hit me up if someone finds something better.

thanks hiho.
