Thanator-like creature

I created this creature as a learning exercise. The design is of course inspired by the Pandora megafauna. :wink:
There have been some tasks in the character creation pipeline I always avoided in the past. So I decided to go throught every step: From sculpting to retopology, texturing and rigging.

Everything was done in Blender. The retopo-mesh is not pretty, but I am happy to have done it. Will probably try some addons like Retopoflow in the future. Textures were done with the help of the Masktools-addon. For the rig I used the Rigify addon, with some adjustments, especially in the face area.

Enjoy and please let me know, if you have any suggestions.
