Ankou is the spirit of death, the one in charge to protect all dead people and beings. He's not a bad guy - "death is just a natural phase".

Character based on "Ankou" the personification of death in Breton Mythology. Face paint style inspired on "mexican skulls" from Day of The Dead.



This character is not finished, I have to work on more details and correct some parts. First time on bones modeling. It has the most complex rigging I've ever made until now, it moves full body, fingers, mouth, eyes and tail. Also I made some facial expressions on top head part and eyelids. Also I wanted to test this model with heavy 16k textures for details, I think it works fine - zoom it for details!:)

Enjoy, this one is so great and funny to make!:D


Made on Blender

Looks good, the eyes kinda make it look like a banjo kazooie character, but regardless I really like it looks great man
