In this paper, the authors propose and defines four eXtensible 3-Dimensional (X3D) nodes to render real-world characters such as human being and animals in 3D virtual environments, which conform to the X3D standard format for representing and rendering real-world characters in virtual spaces, aiming to make them available as an extension of the X3D core nodes. Several examples are implemented to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed X3D nodes. Implemented results demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed X3D nodes as an extension of the X3D core components for rendering real characters in 3D virtual spaces.
