    Trying out animal like movements

    Ignore the bad foot placement, horrible gif quality and stiffness, I am completely aware of those. Anyway, I started animating animal type movements, so I started with a walking animation. What think about the walk? How to make the walk better? Bah.

    Since an animal has four legs they don't bob up and down like a human walks, they flow more and always have two limbs on the ground at all times.

    Yeah it needed a lot more flow. The way it moved looked really unnatural. Not bad though, I liked the background even though it looked gif raped.

    I donīt like how the animal walks.. Watch a dog while heīs walking, a dog woudnīt bob up and down so much.. Also an animal walks way slower and flowier!

    Aye, the flow could do with some work. Try studying some animal movements on Youtube or somewhere to help you. It might also be an idea to animate with onion skin at first until you get the hang of it.
    It's a nice idea though and would be excellent to see in an animation if you manage to pull it off.

    Did ANYONE on DD spend a lot of time animating with animals? Probably not..?

    @Lithium: The gif is ruined yes. The original looks WAY better.
