Gumroad – Universal Human Rigged Base Mesh

Gumroad – Universal Human Rigged Base Mesh








This rigged human base mesh is the framework upon which my formerly entitled “Perpetual Multipurpose Personal Person Project” is based. The P.M.P.P.P. was made to alleviate the burden of rigging, weight painting, retopologising, UV unwrapping and generally having to reinvent the wheel for every new humanoid character. By distilling the shared features of the human race into a single form, it provides a neutral, reusable human-shaped canvas for sculpting, texturing, posing and animating.



Other useful uses include:


  • A basis for sculpting and texturing new characters
  • Posing for art reference and paint-overs
  • Animating
  • Instructional presentations
  • Pulling it apart to see what makes it tick



  • Designed to accommodate realistic character creation
  • Neutral base mesh averaged from male, female and 3 races.  Both genders can be enabled by applying one of the male or female base meshes that are sold separatelyNote: only the male OR the female is required – there is no need to purchase both.
  • Full IK body rig, including fingers (ideal for pressing against surfaces). Note that the feet are rigged to accommodate shoes, so while toes are present, they are not individually rigged. Facial rig is not included, but is planned for a separately sold future upgrade
  • On-the-fly customisable skeletal proportions; easily and non-destructively edit the rig for innumerous human body types, humanoid creatures and stylised characters (see video demos above).
  • 2 UV map variants: full body, and face-focused
      • Lightweight mesh for responsive performance. Poly count (before subdivision): body: 5,454 faces (quads); eyeballs: 692 faces (quads) each
  • Topology optimised for posing and animation; edge loops follow wrinkles and muscular direction where possible, without compromising deformation quality. Modelled with separate clothing in mind (i.e. geometry is less dense in typically covered areas)
  • Corrective shape keys to preserve volume in most joints
  • IK/FK switching
  • Soft IK to dampen “popping” when IK chains are near full extension
  • Finger curling controls for quick hand posing.
  • All quads
  • Compatible with Blender 2.79, 2.8x and 2.9x
