v2.0 with some more facial controls and other bells and whistles done by David Andrade

Squirrely is a free rig for noncommercial use only. I wanted a "ball like" character with a tail to play with for animation tests and Squirrely came into being. Hope you enjoy him. Here's a test animation done to test the rig.

And here's another great animation done by Valerie Morrison:

Features:

  • Body Rigged with The Setup Machine 2
    • Stetchy IK Spine
    • FK/IK Switchable Arms and Legs
    • Limb mirroring
    • Auto/Manual Stretch limbs
    • Character Sets Set up for proper keying
    • Tail/Ear Controls
    • Finger/Toe FK/IK
    • LowRes Proxy Geometryy mode for faster playback
    • Character scaleable via master control
    • Hideable tail via "COG"
    • Face Camera
  • Facial rig

Recommendations:

  • EyeBlend Control transitions between Joystick/look at control for the eyes
  • Use the character sets - one of my nit picks with the setup machine is that the FK/IK swich attributes are located on the COG control. As such, having limited keying sets via selection sets or quickselection sets is a hassle. The characters sets make sure you key all the appropriate attributes
  • FK/IK Arms and Leg switching accessed via the TSM controls
  • Mirroring accessed via TSM Controls

Requests:

  • I'm not great at shading/texturing. If anyone wants to come up with some slicker stuff you want incorporated, lemme know.
  • Tag animations you do with him as "Squirrely" on YouTube, Vimeo or the like. I'd like to see em.
  • Have fun:)

Verson History:

  • v 2.0 - David Andrade created an updated rig
  • v1.1.1 - readded .mb so that it has both
  • v1.1 - replaced .mb with .ma
