Walk cycle + frames by Fennu Walk cycle + frames by Fennu
My best walk cycle so far. Just ignore the tail, let's pretend it's windy where the dog is walking or something.
16 frames, animated in PhotoShop

Frames for reference: [link]

Hey! Great work! Im busy with a quadraped walkcycle at the moment (3D) its really tricky. I really like yours, the only thing i noticed (and I checked your frame reference to be sure) was that theres a point where both right legs are off the ground at the same time, then again with the left (frames 1 and 5) maybe the front paw should hold one more frame before lifting off?
I could be wrong, like I said, im busy learning it myself, ignore me lol :)

Thanks! Quadrupled walk cycles are terrible, this is my fourth try or so. I have no idea if there are any anatomical or other flaws, I just had to stop caring to be able to post anything .____.

I tried to make them move some way. I'm obsessed with ear movements in animations 8')
Thank you ^^

Thanks! I'm glad you think it's smooth, usually I feel like my animations have too few frames.

You should try it!
I have so many unfinished animations... I certainly should finish or remake them some day.

Definitely ._. it wasn't that big problem when I was younger and just didn't care but now... Sometimes getting serious about drawing is not so fun.

Very smooth and natural, for the whole dog. Excellent work! One query, and I'm not an expert on animation or dog anatomy, but are the feet correct for the far legs? To me, seeing the toes like that, they look a little turned inwards, especially when we see the pads when they are lifted as if they are slightly turned out.

Thanks! You're right, the paws are a bit off. I tend to draw them like that in still pictures so they don't look silly but in animation it's more like a bad habit. But let's just ignore them.

I have technically no idea how close or far from the correct anatomy my drawings are. I kind of stopped caring a while ago x')

Hitsi oikeesti, haluaisin niin jossain vaiheessa kokeilla tehdä jonkun kävelyanimaation<3 >:
Tää on ihan liian hieno, jää silleen väkisinkin kyyläämään tota.. Näkee kyllä että sulla on nää animaatiot hallussa!

Lyijykynällä, valopöydällä ja raatamisella x') tää oli varmaan neljäs tai viides yritys tehdä toimiva walk cycle, tosin siitä on aika kauan kun oon viimeks kokeillu.

Tilattiin jostain valokuvatarvikeliikkeestä netin kautta. Se on sellanen harmaa laatikko jossa on vaalee "näyttö" jonka alla on lamppu. Niitä on erilaisia mutta mulla on tän tyyppinen: [link]
Kannattaa kyllä hankkia jos tekee animaatioita tai tussaa kuvia eri paperille kun luonnos.
