Modified Norman

I sometimes get emails with requests to share my modified Norman rigs. Though I'm not able to share the specific character rigs at the moment, I use a modifed Norman, with a body which I grabbed from another rig called Nart, as a base for my characters.

Hi Shiva,

I googled and found your site. I was looking for something exactly like this. Thanks for posting it!
One thing tho. When I opened it up the tongue and teeth are missing. Do you have a different version that has the tongue and teeth?

Thanks,
Chris

Try downloading it again. I just replaced the file with the one which has the teeth and tongue! Thanks for letting me know.

Hey Karan,

There are quite a few tutorials on how to modify norman, and here is one of them which I think is simple enough.

How do you modified the body of this Norman ?

shiva said...

You can use the the torso controls to scale 'em up as you want. For arms and legs, use the EX controls to adjust the length and thickness.

Animator said...

Thank you,and how do you add female form to the torso and add clothes like dress ? to make woman ?The face is modified like old norman i guest ? Thank you again .

You have to create extra geometry for the clothes, with female proportions, and wrap it to the body.

You can check the website I've linked in one of the previous comments on how to do it.

THanx shiva, that's awesome modification __________I found only one issue here that is, when I move feet upward or make him to sitting position then the skinn near its thigh doesnt deform well, I mean u can himself see the diffrence between that edgeflow, that might be due to the wrap deformation that you have applied on the geometry ________otherwise nice rig
