A fix of this mesh:

Fixed some stray verts, bad faces, and other mesh issues. Did not fix any of the topology. Also rigged using rigify with default automatic weights.

Nothing stellar, and the topology is a little bit strange, but is a great general purpose basemesh and works well for sculpting.

7406 poly.

The original mesh is probably the best basemesh on the site even with all of its flaws, so I wanted to upload my fixed version which has given me a ton of milage as general purpose cc0.

    Ismft thank you so much for helping me in my animation! I'm fairly new to Blender and I've been unable to animate because I can't make a good human model. Thanks to you I've been able to progress forward a lot!

    I have downloaded his excellent model :) but i am not sure how to pose it, pose mode seems locked but it is poseable right?

    Hi GirlRacer64-

    To Unlock the pose Go to your properties Box and click the little icon of the human (while in rig mode) and the first option under the 'skeleton' tab should be "pose position" & "rest position" select pose position and you are ready to go.

    If you press 'A' to select all rig parts followed by "ALT R" it will reset to the default T-pose making is easier to pose.

    Also to the author of this model, great job on a solid base mesh, This will take about an hour off my job, thanks alot :)

    The head bone does not work. It is titled "head" but when i select it i get ORG-hips. Everything else works great.

    the model is rendered over my other models, how do I turn this off?

    Edited July 13, 2014

    I think it's because you have X-ray turned. Go to Object properties > Display > Tick X-Ray. Try this.

    Thank you! How do I animate it properly, because it seems that I can't move the bones so he would sit or move his torso down. It just stays in place and only rotation for the main body works.
