Azreal Vs. Pazuzu

I created a 2 character and an arena in a digital format. Pazuzu the Alien was created in Mudbox, Azreal was designed in 3ds Max, all rendering, texturing and baking was done in Marmoset, and then the baked low poly models were bought in the Arena in UE4 . Both Pazuzu and Azreal were developed as high poly and low poly models so they could be baked, animated and brought into a game engine
