Pink Panther Released as a Free Maya Rig!
More and more Maya users are developing free rigs for use by animation students, to help them learn their craft. Of course, Karim Kashefi doesn't own the rights to the Pink Panther, so do watch out when using anything of this nature for commercial gain (strictly forbidden) and make sure it's just to practice your animation skills. We have not yet road-tested this rig, but we're looking forward to seeing what our talented students can do with it!
To watch the video demonstration at YouTube, follow the link below:
All together now: "Ba dum, ba dum, ba dum ba dum ba dum ba dum ba daaaaaaa badabadabadum!"
