Lizard created in Mudbox

I was given a task of creating a lizard in Mudbox and exporting it to Maya, I have also animated the lizard in Maya.

To create the lizard, I have been using Mudbox. Below is a screenshot showing the Mudbox software that I have been using:

To create the lizard, I selected a reptile sculpture.  After the mesh has been created, I subdivided the level by pressing Shift + D on the keyboard or by selecting “Add New Subdivision Level” in the “Mesh” drop down menu. I subdivided my lizard mesh into three levels. To create the spikes on my lizard, I resized the sculpting tool (the circle pointer) down to a smaller size and selected “Grab” tool in the “Sculpting Tools” options. I then turned the “Mirror” option tool so I could have the spikes on both sides. I also created some spikes around the head. To create the scales, I used the “Spray” tool and created the scales down the spine. I used the “Knife” tool and pressed Ctrl on the keyboard at the same time or selected the “Invert Function” to create the mouth. I used the “Foamy” tool, I then resized the “Strength” and the “Size” of the circle pointer to create the shape of the eyebrows and the nose. For the nose, I turned on the “Mirror” option. I used the “Grab” tool and turned on the “Mirror” option, I resized the “Strength” and the “Size” of the circle pointer to create the pair of eyes.

I also added some textures onto the lizard to make it more realistic, below is a screenshot of the lizard that has been textured:

I have exported the lizard into Maya, at first, the lizard was quite large, I then rescaled the lizard to make it smaller. Below is a screenshot of the lizard in Maya:
