Gator Man

I have this idea for a short animation, featuring a Gator Man. Living like a regular person, but obviously is a humanoid alligator. This is my current progress, however, I am having a problem. Now that I have the basic model thrown together, I’m getting a little stuck, not sure where I should go from here. Am I read to start working texture, or is there more with the model I should do? Should I rig it before texturing it? I wanted it to have big cartoon-like eyes, with blinking eyelids, though I’m completely new to that and will have much to figure out.

Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
