If you need a 4-legged animal type lion, you have limited options. You can create your own model and import it, but it won't move like the Muvizu characters. It also won't move its mouth for dialog or growling.

What most people do is create anthropomorphized animals (two legged characters with lion attributes). You might start with the dog character and add crazy hair to simulate a mane. And a tail. Here's an example: https://www.muvizu.com/Video/45036/The-Gone-Forever-Tree

If you know how to model your own attachments, you could create a custom lion head that leaves the mouth open so your character can respond to dialog

A few weeks ago, I uploaded a set of Wizard of Oz characters (which included the Cowardly Lion)... but It has never been approved by the mods and put into the store... if that would help, I could send it to you directly if you supply an email address. But my lion was made from all stock items that come with Muvizu, so you could make it yourself with the available hair and tail options.

It might not be a good idea to post your teachers email address on a public forum unless you have their permission.

Hi Anabanaba! Love your name!

In a few minutes I'll post a link to my latest lion character... but you can also DL this free set, which contains the cowardly lion
http://www.muvizu.com/Set/45937/SPOOF-PACK-1

OK, here's a picture of the other lion, to help you decide if it's right for your project:



and here's a link to a zip file containing a set with the lion, plus the FBX mane attachment (which could also be used as hair for a human character)

I added some variations to the lion theme.. here's the new set:

(Set was saved in the latest version of Muvizu, might not (probably won't) open in previous versions
