Josh Sobel describes Bonnie as "a free legacy rig. Bonnie has been downloaded and animated over 20,000 times, and though she's a bit dated, you can still pull a decent performance out of her for the low, low price of free".
Bonnie can be downloaded for free from Josh Sobel's website. We're recommending her to all our students for character performance and dialogue animation.
You can also see a great walkthrough of the Bonnie rig in the video below:
Bonnie's shaders are designed to work with Mental Ray, so she will work less well with newer versions of Maya that use Arnold for ray tracing.
