View Full Version : Help with human characters

11-16-2003, 12:36 AM
I have recently bought MB5 and I have been having little luck getting my characters in and out of mb5.

The problem is, my models stink. I have not yet been able to construct a human figure with decent weight maps, I am not a modeler, my weightmaps crunch, etc. Does any one have a source for a human that is already weighted, I think I can manage the MB5 rig. I need characters that depict underground miners for a project that I am working on for Montana Tech, so I need males, with work clothes and boots, I have built the rest of the gear.

These models should be poser quality but not to many polys.

Or If there is some one who would like to sell me one or two weighted models please email

Also a good study of Anatomy of the Human Body.


Just don't use the illustrations above but also the descriptions of each part to get a as real as possible to model from.
