    Hi! Thanks for this amazing rig! But I have a question.. How can I load the textures? I found the material labert 2 that uses the png file you included but when I rewrite this path with the file in my computer location, it doesn't work. Is there anything else I should change?

      Hello, it sounds like what you are doing is right. Can you send me a printscreen with the problem?

        great rig! thx for sharing. Could you please tell me how to scale the bird? I couldn't find the scale attribute under the main ctrl. I tried to unlock the scale control but all body parts getting mess up when I scale it.

          Hi! I'm loving the rig so far c: I'm currently in an animation program, so I wanted to ask, do you allow your rig to be shown in demo reels?
