I'm uploading this rig that I created for one of my shots, The Archer. I've received a few requests for the rig since posting the shot, and as far as I can tell there is no other free bow and arrow rig for Maya online, so I decided I would just release it for anybody who wants it!
Usage notes are included in the compressed file.
The files were saved in Maya 2013, but should work fine in earlier versions. I haven't personally tested it with anything earlier than 2011.
The rig is perfectly free and I have no intention of limiting what is done with it, but I do simply ask that you give me appropriate credit if you use it for anything that gets posted online. Thanks!
