“We’re excited to be providing a great rig to the CG community at large. Stewart was designed to be flexible, simple and fast. So many of the issues we see from student and professional work is a lack of solid body mechanics. You can get away with a lot in animation, but if your mechanics are off even the untrained eye can spot it. For this reason we wanted to get people excited about working with a great character with the focus on improving their foundation!”
- Bobby Beck (CEO and Cofounder of Animation Mentor)

You asked us for a free rig. Good news: you got one!

The brand new Tribes character, Stewart, is available for FREE download. We worked hard to produce a character that would exceed your expectations. When you download him today, you’ll love him for all the reasons we do:

  • He’s free!
  • He’s a professional quality rig with intuitive controls and simple design.
  • He’s built for action with exceptional body mechanics.
  • He’s great for animators of all levels.

Download Stewart today. We look forward to seeing your animation soon. Share him (and your animation) with the rest of the community @animationmentor #freerig.

    I noticed that the “Download” button, does not want to work. I think maybe there is an error coding it? I would really like to try out Stewart, today.

    When I unzip the file it gives this error msg:! “C:UsersuserDocumentsmayaAnimationMentor_Stewart.zip: Cannot create AnimationMentor_StewartExtrasAnimationMentor | The Online School of Animation and VFX.url
    The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
    ! C:UsersuserDocumentsmayaAnimationMentor_Stewart.zip: Attempting to correct the invalid file name
    ! C:UsersuserDocumentsmayaAnimationMentor_Stewart.zip: Renaming AnimationMentor_StewartExtrasAnimationMentor | The Online School of Animation and VFX.url to AnimationMentor_StewartExtrasAnimationMentor _ The Online School of Animation and VFX.url”

    and when I open the file this window pops: “Errors have occurred while reading this scene that may result in data loss.
    Please check the Script Editor for details.”

    and at the bottom: “// Error: Could not open command port commandportDefault because that name is in use.”

        Hey guys! Had our tech guru look into this. There was an issue with the | in the file. It’s removed. Would you try downloading again and let me know if you have any issues? Sorry for the inconvenience.
