Hello, can I ask your permission to use this design as practice for a 3D art class? It would be a purely personal work, which would at most be shown in my portfolio as a demonstration of modeling skill, and I would of course credit you and link to the original work.

It looks like an animal that an alien species might domesticate into a sort of riding animal.

I'm using this creatur to practice modeling creatures, and would like your permission to add it to my portfolio.  I can also send you a completed model if you wish, when I'm complete.

I'm making a game, and I'm wondering if you would like to draw animals, robots or maybe even people for it. If you would like to know more about this or would want to help, please email me at moosymantheboss@gmail.com

wow you must have done some research on this. i can see how the multiple join would provide maximum voltage and how the long tail would be used for balance. i like. i like a lot.

I would expect him to have bigger nostrils, for shifting the that volume of air needed to run at high speeds? Also, the back foot looks strange? its like he is standing with his toes bent under?

Just observations. You work is awesome. Thanks for sharing.

Who am I to utter a single thought about your fantastic work? But still I cannot keep shut :)
From an engineering perspective I think this fellow would benefit from having those chest claws working upwards instead of downwards. In that way they can cooperate with the head and jaws like a giant grip on whatever unfortunate being within reach.
I realise that my suggestion implies more than a little redesign but it would be interesting to see what it would look like.

Cheers!  /Thomas

Extra leg? This creature has three pairs of limbs. There are no extra legs in the background.
