This was my first try at creating and animating a creature from scratch. I designed this creature with several animals in mind, including but not limited to weasels, crocodilians, mongeese and tropical fish. You can see my guide drawings below displaying the front, back, sides, and top views of the character.
Like several other projects I've done, I used 3D Studio Max to model, rig, and animate the creature. I am currently working on improving the animation and making new animation clips. You can read more about my process in detail by clicking each of the images below.
