Default Download/Model Question

Hey Everyone,

First off...I love this board. I'm getting a lot of help so far.

Now, I am a nubie and I am a little confused so I apologize for the basic questions.

I've been downloading some "people" characters off of this site and I was wondering if I am going to be able to add a skeleton to these characters and play around with moving them around. I think that the people were created as poly shapes but they have been made into one large shape (it's not like they made the arms seperate and just parented it to the body, I don't think).

My basic fault is that I don't draw very well and I don't want to get fustrated by this. Using the models posted makes it much more fun.

Thanks everyone.

Chris, Baltimore

I wouldn't see any reason why you couldn't rig them if you'd like.
