Minecraft Monster Rigs

Here are the downloads for my Minecraft monster rigs. These rigs are designed to work in Autodesk Maya 2016 or newer, and are not guaranteed to work on older versions.

If you use any of these rigs, please copy-paste this into your video description:

You will need to re-link the textures for the rigs. If you want my rigs to just work, place the textures inside your project as follows: sourceimages/images for textures/minecraft textures/textures-new/
Or you can manually link them. Check out this page for information about how to extract the textures from Minecraft.

Skeleton Rig (Shrogg Edit)

This rig is not 100% my own, this is a modified version of Shrogg’s Skeleton rig.
Features I added:

  • 3D bones on the arms (bend them to see what I mean)
  • Fancy IK driven bow

For a wither skeleton, just swap out the texture for the wither skeleton’s, and scale up the rig a small amount
