Free rig - George 1.3

I am not sure where rigs should be posted so I guess the animation forum is the closest one.

George Rig is a cartoon character rig with all features that animator would expect, including but not limited to:
- switchable FK & IK limbs;
- FK & IK torso;
- squash & stretch;
- advanced foot setup;
- detail facial rig;
- switchers GUI;
- etc.

Download the rig + guide + bonuses (zip file) here

Download only the rig here.

Download only the guide here

Application to run the rig is Blender ( Blender is cool 3d open source application so feel free to download it.

I'd love to hear your feedback.


There is new version of the George rig 1.2.
Main enhancements:
- new stretchy IK system (much better for FK - IK switching)
- bending bones work correctly in stretched positions
- nicer IK torso bones shapes as requested by users
- many other "under-the-hood" tweaks ...

There is new version of the George rig 1.3
- solved flipping of the spine, the shoulders and the neck when the rig was rotated upside down (180 degrees) - yes, some animators would like to animate ceiling walkcycles :-)
- enhanced parenting/multiple spaces switching constraints of the eyes target, neck and head
- some minor tweaks

Updated version George rig 1.2 was just released. See first post.
I am really looking forward to comments from animators (I believe Blender is not in Black list of CGSociety members :-)))
