    Thank you! Appealing character with nteresting anatomy, and very easy to use. This was perfect for fiddling around with the basics of quadruped motion:

    Hey Chad,
    Few years later, but I just threw up a rough test I did recently with your rig.  Enjoy!

    Fantastic rig. Loved using it. I tried making a request, but the site won't let me for some reason (keeps making me log out and back in... frustrating!). Anyway, I'd like to suggest a Foot Roll Attribute on the front legs. There is one for the rear legs, but not for the front, so it required a big of finagling. Just something small :-). Being able to adjust the length of the back legs might be nice as well. Otherwise, great rig. One of my favourites. Thanks!

    A great rig for creature animation, thanks for sharing with the animation community Chad. A couple of notes for animation: To get the front feet to align with the forearm, roll the *frontLeg_CON in neg. Z and then counter with neg. Z on *Finger_CON for my own usage I added orient constraint (with maintain offset) C_tailFk01_NUL --> DEF_C_hip02_JNT so FK tail would inherit hip rotation. The back legs are much longer than the front, so raise the hips up a bit to get a more natural looking gait.

    Rig works pretty well, tail has some errors in the skinning, especially when the rig has to turn 180 degrees. Facial rig could use some work, but overall, pretty nice rig. *Link to shot rig was used for:

    Super rig! it would be nice to have front heel roll, but I can still get want I want by keying frame by frame. Great work! Thanks.

    I have played around with him. It's perfect, very flexible, but the only problem is that it doesnt have front legs toe or heel roll. i neeed that so bad for my scene. and also fet lock, to show weight on his palms. if those are added, this would be the best quadroped rig i have worked with .
