    Smile Free Rigged LW Character

    Hello all,

    Here is a character that I made and rigged about a year ago.I have noticed the severe lack of free rigged models on the web, so I am freely distributing this for learning, personal works and demo reels. The model and scene's format is v9.6.1.

    If you use this on your reels, please be honest and give the model and rig credits to me, Dale Storer. If you want to learn about rigging and expressions, please feel free to rip apart the scene file. I used a number of techniques in making this rig from Jonny Gordon to Proton - Thank you so much.

    Please DO NOT redistribute or use this character in projects for profit without my written consent. Use this guy as a tool for learning or landing a job. Remember about the credits, you get the job for your animating skills, not taking the credit of others.

    There are a few screen captures below of the joystick system for morph targets and expressions. This is ALL Lightwave with no plug-ins, fillers or trans fats (well, I may have used trans fats while modeling him). Be careful of foot location since the reverse foot rig stretches at the ankle.

    There's also a quick walk cycle of Pawn. This is the original character. I removed the head adornments for your use (and so no one would lose an eye ~_^).

    Otherwise, Enjoy, Learn and Prosper. Something that we really need in this current economical climate.

    It's always nice when someone restores your faith in humanity.

    Thank you for that--and the model!

    Hey RH,
    So that's what it is? I posted on a whim and came in a day early? I made mine over a year ago from Tuts online. I'm sure your rig is probably gonna be way better than mine, seeing one of your vids a while back.
    Maybe you should approach the 11 second club (still waiting for a response for my offer) to post it there - they have no Lightwave rigs on their site. That was one of the main reasons for me putting this guy out. Keep up the great work!

    Everyone else: Thanks so much. I hope that you can use this guy and learn something or move ahead in some fashion. Remember, I made the rig from the Jonny Gordon books (Volume 2) and Proton's vids on this site. So if you are confused, you may want to try there for a base to start from. Otherwise, I made Selection sets In SE for the bone chains, or just move to frame 10, click on a controller or bone and mess around.
