Hello there!
Over the past several weeks I have been making a MineCraft Blender rig of Steve for my own personal use.
As I finished up the right along with a few of the mobs I decided that I should share this rig with everyone.
That is so nice of me!

Now I will just start off by saying that I am not a professional or even close to professional Blender user. In fact, I am pretty much a noob when it comes to 3D software and all that kind of stuff. Point is, this might not be 100% optimized, but does it work? Fo' sure!

Now there are a few (two that I have seen) rigs floating around there so what sets mine apart?
Well the only thing that really does set me apart is facial expressions and a slightly different structure to the armature.


Facial expressions:

A variety of mobs:

Currently the mobs are: Steve, Sheep, Cow, Pig, Enderman and the infamous Creeper.

Apparently I can't get it opened? Is there anything I might have done wrong? :/

I downloaded the file, placed it on my Desktop, opened it and looked for a program that would open the whole thing or so.. Or is this just a package you put into another program?

I'm completely new to this so don't put so much weight on it please :)

There are lots of me out there there are similarities. I'm not surprised if there are ones with Steve's and other mobs out there. :) thanks for the concern. I understand the pain of someone stealing someone's work.

Yeah I know its free because I've got it but cinema 4d is easier to control, for me. I probably wouldn't know how to import it too and most of the mob and steve rigs for C4D aren't that good.
