Default Samuel L Jackson

Hey i have this dialogue of Samuel L. Jackson and am looking for a black character rig to use.

I know i know...you guys are screaming 'model it yourself'!

Unfortunately, i am pants at modelling and im an animator not a modeller.

I was wondering if anyone is kind enough to give me a link to a site where there may be a black looking character.

Or if there's anyone bored out there with nothing to do fancies a mini project that'd be cool!

Many many many thanx in advanced!

oh...and too all you budding Mayanairs around the world....Happy New Year from mrpix.

Hi Pix,

I think I remember a head generator that would do a good job of that, if you just wanted the head. Think that the guy who made it was called Matt Birkett Smith, heres a link to some docs on it http://ncca.bournemouth.ac.uk/galler...umentation.pdf

He also did a great little video thats on you tube (or used to be)

Looking pretty good!

He's way out of proportion but i guess thats because he's a cartoon style character.

You should really have created a new thread in W.I.P section.
