Callum's Blender Rig v1.0

[ DISCONTINUED ]

IF AN EXPERIENCED BLENDER USER WOULD LIKE TO TAKE OVER IN UPDATING

THIS RIG, THEY MAY DO SO, PROVIDED THEY GIVE CREDIT TO THE ORIGINAL

OWNER, BEING MYSELF. PLEASE ASK FIRST.

Posted Image

Above is a picture of the Steve rig with his mouth closed and looking slightly downwards.

SELF | FAQ

What does the rig include?

  • Eye movement
  • Eyebrow movement
  • Mouth opening from the left and right and up and down, to give full lip sync possibility
  • Blinking from individual or both eyelids.
  • Bulging eyes for a cute look or something else you can come up with
  • Fingers
  • Hands
  • Full body rig
  • All shape key movement

What needs improvement?

  • The legs' armature. Currently the legs needs quite a bit of work done to them. The lowest armatures on the legs currently do not work, but i'm working on it!

What needs to be added?

  • 3D hair
  • More armature features
  • Need other ideas from you guys! =D

How do i use this rig?

  • Well the one question i get asked a lot is "Its a .blend, not a .zip". The answer is, its supposed to be. The rig isn't pictures, its a character that can be used to animate.
  • This rig works on Blender's Shape keys feature. If you don't know how to use shape keys or even Blender, just research it. Its free software with billions of tutorials accompanying it.

Is the rig finished?

  • Definitely not, it needs a lot of work.

For an answer to any questions, just ask below in the comments!


Changelog

v1.0 -  First version, No changes

v1.1 -  Added slight lighting into the mouth to stop shadows when the mouth is partially closed.



Pictures

Posted Image

Above is the default pose.

Posted Image

Left brow up a bit, left eye to the left, blink a bit and both eyes bulged.

Posted Image

The full body with rigging (NOT RENDERED) in software.

NOTE: In my default settings, i have Mip Map turned off, that is why it isn't blurry before render.

Posted Image

Running along with his fingers out! =D Some lighting glitches on the left arm, but thats not fixable.


Thats all the pictures i could be bothered to make, the rest is up to you! Use your imagination to make amazing renders or animations. You can use 'mineways' to convert your minecraft world into a .obj, which you can import into your blender scene, then put your character in. Look at MinecraftHDFilms' youtube channel to find a tutorial on how to use and download mineways!

Have Fun!

I recommend going on youtube and typing "how to use shapekeys". Look for a tutorial and it should help you. I would help but its too hard to explain.

Do you think you could add back and shoulder bones? The arms being disconnected from the body when you raise them up high enough is annoying, but other than that this is great!
If I've helped you, click that little green arrow at the bottom-right. | Check out my Minecraft server!
If you say "pls" or "plz" because it's shorter than "please", I'll say "no" because it's shorter than "yes".

When approximately will the next update be ready? I have been trying to get the leg joints to work, but I haven't seen how. Also, if you make 3D hair, please can you tell me how to make 3D hair? I'll be using this for a server trailer sometime in the future, and I'll be sure to give you credit for the rig. I'm generally new at rigging, and have tried before, but still need a LOT of help xD
Thanks

Yea, I'm going to try and get the next update out in the next week or so. Been very busy with Exams and such!
Basically, the 3D hair is just going to be the normal hair, but extruded out. If you look at Captain Sparklez's Parody "Fallen Kingdom", That is what i am aiming for. The bones are still a work in progress...
Be sure to send me the video you make when its done, can't wait to see it! :P
Kind Regards,
Callum

Not really, however it isn't impossible. If you copy the original skin, you can edit it to whatever you want.

I might not have the finished and complete trailer for quite a while now, but I'll be sure to send it to you :D I realised that it was getting more similar to some of the rigs on CaptainSparklez' videos as I was 'exploring' it, which is awesome :P
I'm really looking forward to the next rig update, because I can then start my trailer! :DD

Is there any way I can obtain skin from this .blend so I can edit it?

Edit: I figured it out. Sorry for the waste of thread space.

=( I'm not really sure what to do... If I could, i would fix the legs. However i'm really struggling. They just don't want to Obey!!!
With the 3D hair, I can do that, so i'll put that on my list to do. Hopefully have it updated this weeked! :)
