Makehuman is a completely free, innovative and professional software for the modelling of 3-Dimensional humanoid characters.

Features that make this software unique include a new, highly intuitive GUI and a high quality mesh, optimized to work in subdivision surface mode (for example, Zbrush).

Using Makehuman, a photorealistic character can be modeled in less than 2 minutes.

Makehuman is released under an Open Source Licence (AGPL) and is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
