Here are some Character rigs for Autodesk MAYA for you to use. The steve rig contains basic facial controls.
There is also a skeleton rig below

Spoiler:



I should also say that you will need to know how to use Maya if you want to use this rig.

Hello! I downloaded the rig, and couldn't find out how to actually skin the thing with the char.png... I'm a little new at this, so could you help me?

In a few days i will model and rig most other mobs and add them to this.
I dont think i will do a model pack though, there are quite a few of those.
Although i am tempted to make a tools pack....

Also, People should use MAYA! Its what bootstrapbuckaroo uses

I stared to figure out the process of modeling, yet I still do not understand how to animate this rig with all the different parts using keyframes... Could you possibly help me verbally or make a video for all the people who also have this Question? Thanks :D

Nicely done! Interesting for me because I'm making Minecraft into Blender. I don't use Maya, but I'm sure Blender has a better price/features ratio (it's free). [I still don't understand why people prefer C4D or Maya instead of Blender, but that doesn't have anything to do with this]. I'll keep an eye on this.

Blender is a great program, i give you that. But if you ever plan on going for a job at a studio its best to  know maya, as it is industry standard. The features that maya has is incredible, and the interface is amazing (once you get used to it)

but yeah, I might be posting this video tonight. depends on how well the fight scene goes ;)

Just FYI, you spelt beard wrong in your textures Posted Image But anyway, great rig! I couldn't figure out how to get the mouth working properly, plus my control panel was a mess, this is awesome! Are we allowed to use the face rig for commercial use?

EDIT: nvm my question, I figured out how to fix my rig thanks to your rig :P

Hey dude, what do you prefer? Maya or C4D? I was just asking because i've never really picked up and actually used maya, i mostly just stick with Cinema 4D. Although, i've heard from friends that Maya is much more advanced, and once you learn your way around it, it's an amazing piece of software. Plus, BootstrapBuckaroo uses maya, and his animations are amazing. So what would you recommend for just like an amateur at this type of thing? Should i stick with C4D or or move to Maya?

Wow!

Looks really impressive, looks like
something out of a CaptainSparklez animation!

Loving the effect of it all, very well made.

The face has a lot of detail, and I also
love the shadows!
