Characters

Animation Workshop students don't have to make their own rigs

Take a look at the character rigs our students enjoy using.
At Animation Workshops, we provide fun, appealing simple rigs so you can get going right away!
Tub Rig
Tub is one of our flagship simple rigs. Students use these segmented rigs to learn body mechanics so each posing decision is explicit, without being obscured by deformations.

Plus they're like fun toys!
Organic Block Rig
This Block character mod was made by student Keith Seyer. This is a rounded version of Block, with bend capability added to the arms/legs.
Alien Block Rig

CubeAll Rig
AnimSchool's first "block" character, CubeAll is a good way for students to begin learning body animation.
Block Zoe
This Block character mod was made by graduate Michael Chen. This is a female version of Block.

Block Malcolm Rig
A simple rig version of our Malcolm character. This segmented character lets students learn body mechanics by being explicit in posing decisions, without being distracted by deformations.
Animation Workshops offers rigs from our sister school, AnimSchool
Come see what you can achieve with our appealing characters!
Make and move appealing characters
By special arrangement with our sister school, AnimSchool, Animation Workshops students are able to use AnimSchool characters. AnimSchool's Malcolm rig and AnimSchool Picker are used worldwide with over 100,000 downloads.
We love seeing characters come to life! Character artists learn to model great appealing shapes and topologies that deform well. Then how to hand-craft rigs that invite a solid performance.
Whether students take our 3D Character or 3D Animation workshops, they will appreciate our commitment to characters.
We love appealing characters!
We teach people how to make great characters. We teach how to make them act convincingly.
Students in our 3D animation workshops are able to use our simple rigs to focus on the core elements of clear, readable motion and performance. The segmented rigs are helpful for learning body mechanics so each posing decision is explicit, without being obscured by deformations. Plus, they're like fun toys!
