Chip is a free character rig for for Maya 7 and above. Feel free to animate and use him for whatever means, as long as it is for non-profit purposes of course. If you do animate him for your demo reel, I would very much appreciate it if I was credited at the end of the reel.
Throw me an e-mail if you do animate Chip, I would love to see what can be done with him.
Special thanks to two of my teachers, Jason Baskin (creator of Bloke) and Tim Oberlander (creator of Basic Guy and Sam) for their continued help
Intuitive and easy-to-use facial rig
IK/FK arms with blend
IK legs with stretch (for when you need a little extra length in those legs)
Pony tail for secondary animation
Foot and hand controls (individual digit controls for each finger)
Large ass: good for hip-thrusting animations
...able to import character into a different scene and move/scale/rotate using super mover control
Character is not so flexible due to his size
Facial blend shapes could've been pushed further
...not able to shift or control Chip's stomach and fat
