Minecraft Blender Rig -Now with blocks and armour!-


Get Embed Codes

Level 41 : Master Cake
I hit 50 subs so I though I would finish up a rig I have been working on for a while.

Thanks to LeagueOfMinersUK for the blocks!




- Face rig (mouth, eyes, eyebrows)
- Pointing fingers
- Full body rig
- Changeable skins

- Shape keys and drivers for the face.




You may use this for anything you want, provided you give credit. Also put link in the comments here so I can see what your using it for. :D

If you want to learn how to use Blender I suggest going to these sites:
NOTICE: I have been told that some of the textures do not display properly for Linux users.


Update #2 : 05/14/2013 5:15:09 pm5/14/13

Now has a hat layer.
The textures don't appear to show, but they do when rendered.

In the DopeSheet, ShapeKey Editor I have been editing the facial features but I have not had experience in this area and I can not edit some of the features, the ones in purple. Whenever I try to edit the value of the ones in purple the value just snaps back to its original and then it turns orange (selecting it). These features in purple are: EyeL/R, EyeU/D, BrowL Up, BrowR Up, BrowL Tilt, BrowR Tilt, MouthL/R, and MouthT/B. I am lost on this if you could help that would be great! Thx!

P.S. Is there anyway to show the hat layer of a skin on this render?
Unfortunately there is no hat layer. The purple values mean it is attached to a driver (bone), so those are the face controls.

Thank you, but how do I edit the purple values, that is my problem, they don't seem to edit like the ones in grey.
You have to use the controls that are on the face.

I figured it out, I needed to right click on the purple value and click "Delete Driver". Is there any way to append the face rig onto another rig? (with the hat layer)

P.S. Thank you, legouni-craft.webs.com/team-members
As far as I am aware there isn't. I can try and update the rig with a hat layer though.

That would be great!
P.S. Is there any way to manipulate the mouth so as it doesn't leave a patch of one color behind on sertain skins when yous shrink it?
Just updated the rig with a hat layer. AFAIK I can't make it so that it does not leave a patch one colour (EDIT: Just looked, I could but it wouldn't look very good. I will look in to it tomorrow.) The only way to get round it is to make the texture around the mouth blend with the face.

In the new update the bones do not move individually only as a whole, which moves the whole body.
Switch to pose mode.

In the UV/image editor, replace the skin with the skin that you want.
Alright thanks
Can someone please answer my question below? Is there any way to remove the eyes/mouth?
Delete The Shape Keys?
How do you get the fingers to come out? I went in to edit mode and selected the part but cannot move it.

In DopeSheet window you choose ShapeKey Editor mode and you move the PointL and PointR slider. Same way you can change parts of the face.
First of all, thank you SO much. One problem though... I am a noob to blender, I did figure out how to change the skin though.... But when I do change the skin, his mouth and eyes are still there, and it ruins the head of the skin with the mouth and eyes. Is there any way to remove them?

Hey there, I think this a an amazing rig. The only thing is that i don't know how to change the size of eyes, move the mouth or fingers.

P.S: How DO i change the skin without making the image myself, Is there a program for it?
I hear MCSkin3D can do it, But that only supports PC's and i'm on a Mac
