Default Free Rigs...

Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to find some simple, well rigged Characters? I have tried to create some simple ones myself, but I'm not too great of a rigger, so I'm looking for something better. I just want to do some simple animations with Characters that actually animate well. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

look up the lowMan rig. http://lichiman.aniguild.com/?s=lowman
really simple, but its good for practice animation, getting experience, etc. Full set of fk and ik rigs, pretty much.

Cool, thanks! I'll try him out. But, I thought of something while looking at that site. I've created characters that I like better than that, but that are still pretty simple. So, I was thinking, rather than looking for a free rig, why not just look for a good rig tutorial. So, how about it? Does anyone know of any great Rigging Tutorials? That way, I can feel more of a sense of accomplishment when I actually do finish an animation :p
