A few weeks ago I was doing a search on the internet for inspirational material for a personal project that I am working on and I was diverted by something unrelated when I came across something called a character turn/ model sheet for Superman.
This particular character turn is located at a website called
Draw Angry and it the site of an artist and director named Sam Liu ( more information about him here as well).
Sam wrote in
another post on his site that these model sheets were created for the Superman/Batman: Apocalypse video and that they were completed with the assistance of Jeff Johnson ( more info here about Jeff Johnson as well).
I decided after looking at at the Superman sheet that I would would save a copy of it so that I could create a model of it in
Animation Master, one of my computer and animations programs.
Front view of model with the superman model sheet in place.
These images of Superman line up very well and have been a great help in modeling the character so far.

I think that a video tutorial is a better approach for a subject like rigging since it can sometimes become complicated subject.
This is a warm up video for my Animation Master Character Rigging Basics video (I will be posting that video as well soon).

The Blender Foundation has just released the latest version of Blender, its popular 3D modeling and animation program.
Blender is (always) free to download and use and is open source.
I like Blender a lot and I am impressed by the capabilities that it offers artists. This is a high quality program and I am amazed that this is free.
If you are interested in 3D modeling and animation and you have never taken a look at it then I recommend visiting their
web site and having a look at it.
