Test animation of gecko lizard

I’ve done several 3D animations for corporate video – flying logos with effects and solid models, product shots, car parts, etc. – but here’s my first shot at 3D character modeling and rigging.

I’m using LightWave 3D version 9.6. All modeling was done with quads in Lightwave Modeler. Skin color was applied in modeler using  vertex mapping. Surface texture comes from an image map of continuous lizard skin pattern. Rigging was with standard bones and not the new “joints” because I had some trouble with the joint-rigging around the bendable regions.
