Created by the same enterprising folks behind the homebrew gold-mine The Spriters Resource, The Models Resource is a fantastic place to grab game models ripped from recent(ish) games. So far I’ve managed to reassemble classic characters like Mario, Link, Sonic and Metal Gear Ray below.

For those game animators out there looking for some inspiration or just to add some variety to existing demoreels these should prove invaluable, and if there are any technical guys out there that fancy a quick rig and skin challenge it would be much appreciated…
