Please rate and comment, I need the feedback. :)

Some stuff you should know in case you download this:

  • facial expressions are limited due to low number of shape keys, I want to move on to some new projects so I won't make more shape keys for the face, on the other hand you can practice with shape keys by making more facial expressions

  • Armature and Mesh deformation is both used on the model, I got this idea from Blenrig, that stuff is just pure awesomeness I tried my best to make the mesh to deform good, but in some extreme poses you mught find that it's not deforming well.

  • I've added some information about the rig on the rig layer (Alt+2), and I tried to clean up the .blend as best as I could. I hope I didn't leave any garbage in there

  • There are 2 blend files, one has the rigged mesh, the other has the highres meshes. Both blend files are compressed so they might open slowly.

    Good modeling and even better posing! I would love to see her move!

    My only remark is on the size of the file!

    Thank you very much! :) And I am really sorry about the file size :( I forgot to write this in the description, but it is this large because of the high res meshes. I compressed them as best as I could because I wanted to include them.

    I forgot to mention this and I feel like a jerk now :S I had some really great help from guys here at blendswap and I want to thank them for giving me tips. I would like to thank to MoreDread for his GIFs and theoschildkroet for the anatomy advices. Without them I couldn't make her look like this :D

    I just want to report a bug with Internet Explorer. Whenever I click the download button in IE the page reloads forcing me to click the button for a second time. This flaw cost me twice as many megs for a single file. When I tried to download Kara which is 80mb it says that I have exceeded the download limit for the week even though I know that there was 93megs remaining.

    I am sorry to hear that. :( You should contact the admins with this bug. What I can do for you is the following. Send me an email to cont_mike at yahoo dot com. And I can send the file in two parts to you via yousendit if this is ok with the admins and with you. This way you don't have to download it again.
