Ahk-trot: Pencil Test by Ahkward Ahk-trot: Pencil Test by Ahkward
Pencil Test = Sort of a sketch version of an animation. Testing movement to make sure it's smooth.

Mine is not. ROFL WTF if happening to his tail. I need to tone that down. e___e A LOT. lol

It's been a while since I did a nice animation, about 3 years. I'm looking forward to doing more. XD Originally I do them in color so I can tell the back and front legs apart, thus the weird greys. However so it's easier for you to see, I made it greyscale.

I'll eventually finish it, but I have almost 40 frames to clean up now. -shot- and back to commissions now

So far so good, his legs are a bit stiff but doesn't look bad, I like ears. The longer I am watching him running this and that way it makes me laugh, have no actual idea why tho.

I agree his legs seem a bit stiff.seems to be the general consensus. May he looks silly because of the bouncy way he scurries across the page?

Haha! Nice first try! I recommend studying some real live animals and their joint position and how they trot n stuff. Good first attempt though! Hope I can make an animation sometime...

I watched a video or two while I was making this of a fox trotting in slow motion. This is simply the first pass of it. XD The front legs are a bit stiff and his tail has issues.

Ferrets usually walk like Ahk in this animation (or at least mine does)

I had no idea foxes walk like ferrets.

It just looks like it :P
of course ferrets have more of an arched back and tinier legs, so it's a little more choppy. 

Cute none the less x3

His front legs seem a bit stiff. But otherwise I love it, I don't know why but it just makes me smile xD Like Ahk has things to do and no time for my nonsense xD

I agree that they seem stiff. I'll look at some more references and clean it up for the second pencil test. Thanks!
