NEW: Reshaped head, remodelled eyeballs, rig improvements, UV improvements and more.

This rigged human base mesh is the framework upon which my formerly entitled “Perpetual Multipurpose Personal Person Project” is based. The P.M.P.P.P. was made to alleviate the burden of rigging, weight painting, retopologising, UV unwrapping and generally having to reinvent the wheel for every new humanoid character. By distilling the shared features of the human race into a single form, it provides a neutral, reusable human-shaped canvas for sculpting, texturing, posing and animating.

Due to popular demand, I’ve decided to make the base mesh and rig available for general consumption, and have thereby redubbed it the more easily pronounceable “Universal Human” project. So now you can have your very own personal person too! Use it to mind the kids, ward off ghosts, or even to taste-test your auntie Ethel’s scone mix! Also works as a handy insect repellent or inflatable life preserver.**

Other useful uses include:

A basis for sculpting and texturing new characters
Posing for art reference and paint-overs
Animating
Instructional presentations
Pulling it apart to see what makes it tick
Here is a work in progress demonstration of the rig from April 2019. Improvements have been made in the interim (including disabling Bendy Bones to improve torso deformation), so the final product differs slightly in appearance.

Two demos of the proportions being edited (the first one has the separately available Male Base Mesh added):

MAIN FEATURES
Designed to accommodate realistic character creation and animation
Gender neutral base mesh, averaged from 18 male, female, African, Asian and European likenesses of models and celebrities. Both genders can be enabled by applying one of the Male or Female base meshes which are sold separately. Note: only the male OR the female is required – there is no need to purchase both.
Full IK body rig, including fingers (ideal for pressing against surfaces). Note that the feet are rigged to accommodate shoes, so while toes are present, they are not individually rigged.
On-the-fly customisable skeletal proportions; easily and non-destructively edit the rig for innumerous human body types, humanoid creatures and stylised characters (see video demos above).
2 UV map variants: full body, and face-focused
Lightweight mesh for responsive performance. Poly count (before subdivision): body: 5,492 faces (quads); eyeballs: 644 faces (quads) each
Topology optimised for animation and posing; edge loops follow wrinkles and muscular direction where possible, without compromising deformation quality. Modelled with separate clothing in mind (i.e. geometry is less dense in typically covered areas)
Corrective shape keys to preserve volume in most joints
IK/FK switching
Soft IK to dampen “popping” when IK chains are near full extension
Finger curling controls for quick hand posing. See demo.
All quads
Compatible with Blender 2.79 and higher
No script installations or add-ons necessary; just load and go!
See the Reference Chart for rig operational instructions.

KNOWN LIMITATIONS
IK/FK switching latency in Blender 2.79 (no latency apparent in 2.8x)
No IK/FK snapping is implemented, so IK controls will need to be manually realigned when switching from one to the other
A side effect of one of the posing features is that the Torso and Thorax controls drift from the spine if the pelvis is moved in X or Y. A workaround is to select both pelvis and torso and move them in unison.
While the body will deform well in most situations, this may not always be the case for more unusual or extreme poses. Manual re-shaping is recommended in those instances.
