SDK Master Thread

What this thread's for
Over the years the Polycount community has created and released many SDKs for people to practice and enhance their skills through. But they have been spread out, thrown across many threads and posts, making it difficult to know what was available. This thread aims to amass them all into one location, so that they may be easily accessed and shared.

What is an SDK?
An SDK in this case refers to a model that's been released to the community for download by its original artist, with the purpose of being used to help others learn to be better texture artists or animators by letting them focus on just that: texturing / animation.

Rules for posting
This thread is for those wishing to contribute to the community models they've made. If you wish to post an sdk for others to use try and make sure its complete first, any wip models don't belong here. Those that wish to post their texturing or animation progress here using one of the available SDKs can, but those posts are probably better suited to the 'What Are You Working On' thread.
