1. Download the RIG

2. Open your Blender, now it will look like this:
Image

3. Open the RIG in Blender, when you have opened it, then it will look like this:
Image

4. Change the skin/Upload a skin

Image

Drag the red-marked corner to left till it looks like this:

Image

Then, at the right one, you push the red-marked button:
Image

Then choose UV/Image Editor, then it will look like this:
Image

Then, click at this red-marked button:

Image

Now, instead of ''Render Result'', you must change to ''Char Skin.png''

If you don't want the regular ''Char Skin'', you can make your own skin, or find one, but now, i use the regular skin.

Open the skin in Paint.NET:

Image

Paint the Skin color over the Eye Pupile, the Nose and the Mouth:

Image

Now, you can replace the ''Char Skin.png'' with the one you got now:

Image - ''Replace Image''

Image

Now, it's going to look like this:

Image

Now, you can drag the corner side back to normal, and pose the character:

Image

Then, click the ''Render'' Button

Image

Now, click at the ''Render Image'' Button, and there it is, the final product!:

It's quite hard. You download a sword rig. Or a rig including the item(s) you want.
You go to the top left in File > Append > Click on the Rig > Object > The name of the item. > Enter

Hi, I did all the steps and it went good. But I did not understand the last step - How do you pose the character? I dragged the boxes on his legs, but it did not do anything? Please, help me!
