Thanks for using Adobe Character Animator CC! We’re so grateful for you! To celebrate, the Adobe Character Animator team has a special gift for you: Ninja and Proteus! These professionally-designed multilayered illustrator files are rigged and ready for animating. You are free to use and distribute- our “Thank you!” to you!

Ninja and Proteus are each unique characters, and we know your animations will bring them to life! Ninja has head and body turns, subtle eyelids, and draggable limbs with punch and kick replays. Proteus is a monochromic character with customizable hairstyles, eyes, glasses, and more. Additionally there are a couple of background images to liven up any animation.

This video walks through some of the unique features of each character. You’re free to use, edit, record, or stream with these puppets however you want.

Download the two new free puppets and backgrounds here.

Designed by award-winning character designer, illustrator, motion graphics artist and web designer: Kevin McMahon. His clients include Stanford University, Trader Joe’s, and USA Track and Field. Kevin also creates content for the “Design Dojo”, a design education initiative serving educators and students worldwide with posters, videos, and other resources.

Additionally, last month we released Thorne the Troll with draggable arms and foreground & background elements. We’ve now added Thorne to our examples page too!
