Jim Cartoon Rig For Blender 3d

by Alexey Drozd in Models

Jim is cartoon rig for Blender 3D

Jim is a character made for training animation skills. In it, I tried to combine the best rigging practices, both from Blender 3D and Maya. The character turned out to be very light and optimized (a total of 325 bones and 19,788 faces). Also in the pack there are walking animations, a facial animation test and a script to create a panel with layers of rig.
