Download Eisko’s free rigged 3D male character ‘FreakyHoody’

Digital doubles firm Eisko has released a free rigged 3D male human character.

The asset is based on 3D scan data of Sylvain Helaine, the French model and comedian who bills himself as the “world’s most tattooed school teacher”.

It isn’t licensed for commercial use, but it comes as an Unreal Engine project with 8K PBR textures and a MetaHuman rig, so it’s well suited to use in R&D work or demo material.
