Wolf Movie Scene Redo

Surfing around the Wolf movie website, I came across one of their pencil tests where Silver lunges at an elk's leg. It interested me and I wanted to see how the same scene would appear if I redid it. Thus voila, a pseudo-Silver trying to hamstring a elk.
Original scene: [link]
Wolf movie website: [link]

Silver belongs to Silver Sky Studio.

EDIT: cleaned up slightly and leg movement adjusted.

I love your version :D it feels snappier (lol, pun, I mean snappy animation not Silver of course haha) which feels more appropriate to the scene of an elk hunt. I like the 'ouch' jerk of the elk with its leg.

That's so cool, great animations! I saw this one on YouTube I think. (But just as a heads up incase you didn't already know, the first link just starts yelling at you about how its bad to steal others art.)

Also if you saw it on Youtube, it's not supposed to be there. I never uploaded it to Youtube or gave anyone permission to use it.

This is more accurate than the real run! The original, Silver seemed almost too gentle. This is much better.^^

I don't like reporting people, but I thought it was best just doing it. :( You might not even care 'bout it, but still... It's such an awesome animation :)

Please look at 1:10

Wow, I really like how dynamic this one is. I feel it's definitely higher in difficulty to do this all in flash (or digitally).

I also like the original as well as it's more tugging on the leg.

Very nice! Such fluid movement, and the anatomy as really great! Like Kay Fedewa said, they need to have you on their team! I'm very eager to see the movie, it looks like it will be really good! :D

A real wolf would never attack from the back, they tend to avoid the strong, kicking, skull bashing hind legs. They would cut it off to the side and lunge for the neck while others herd it to the side

If you watch any documentary you'll see that they do attack the back legs, but they do it with extreme care and usually after they've tuckered their prey out a bit first by chasing it. They do do all that you say too though! :D

Actually no. One of the very first moves a pack does IS go for the hind legs to sever the main tendons so it can't run. Then they'll lunge at the back quarters and start eating it while the elk is still alive. No back legs, it can't go anywhere or try to protect itself. Wolves are the only predator that eat live read meat. They won't kill you then eat you... they'll eat you alive. You die from them devouring you. They're the only ones that do that. A bear will kill you first, a cougar will kill you first...not a wolf. They like to eat their prey alive.

Actually Sharpe19, lions also frequently eat their prey while it is still alive and so do many other predators! Most prey animals are probably actually dead though before a predator (including wolves) start eating. All of the big cats that crush their prey's throat/suffocate their prey (leopards and cheetahs for example,) probably also sometimes begin eating their prey while its heart is still beating. It would be a clumsy or inexperienced predator though that does this (minus lions, certain prides of which happily start chowing down on live elephant calves) while the animal is still conscious enough to kick because most predators (including wolves) just don't have the 'manpower' or weight to hold down a large, thrashing animal with sharp hooves and horns - prey animal species are not at all helpless. They are actually exceedingly dangerous and, case in point, far more people are killed by deer than by any of North America's carnivores! 

Luckily, prey animals who are unlucky enough to be consumed by any predator while still alive usually swiftly bleed to death or just aren't conscious while it happens. (Which is still a horrible way to go, I am not saying that it is not, nor am I justifying it, but humans do far more horrible things than the things that natural predators do to their prey - and far more frequently.) I've seen footage of young cats (again, leopards, cheetahs,) suffocating their prey, letting go to eat, realizing that their prey isn't dead and swiftly correcting their mistake. Please, do some research before making statements that a specific animal is the only one in the world to do something, because it most likely isn't true, such is the case here! :)

Wolves also don't naturally prey upon humans, so please do not write like they do - in doing so, you do an ecologically invaluable animal which is generally completely harmless to people a severe injustice. You are far more likely to die by being in a commercial aviation accident (the chances of which are far less than being struck by lightning) than be killed by a wolf... but I have heard many accounts of bears eating people (or trying to eat people) while they were still alive. (Bear attacks, while not as rare as wolf attacks are still rare enough luckily to also be statistically a nonissue. 'Playing dead' is not a good tactic for avoiding death by bear. It is always best to make yourself look big and scary while slowly backing away however if a bear really wants to eat you - again, super rare - then it's advised that you fight like a demon and employ pepper spray if you have it, because a predatory bear just isn't going to let go unless you prove that you're too tiresome to kill. Predators are universally inclined to save their energy by preferring easy prey!) Those people who have been killed by wolves are usually killed because of a misunderstanding on their part of wolf body language (captive wolves - this is actually the same reason why people usually get killed by domestic dogs,) or the wolf was lone and starving (we are far easier and less dangerous prey than elk) or in the rarest occasion, a human going too close to a den. I'd say that every animal has the right to defend its babies from a perceived threat! We would! As well, wild wolves take great pains to avoid us so ever seeing one is massively unlikely. They truly are the 'ghosts' of the forest! ;)

When it comes to North American predators, wolves are by far the least likely to kill you. Cougars are more likely to see us in a predatory way than wolves or bears and almost all of their attacks on humans (super rare) are indeed predatory. (But cougars will also protect themselves and their babies from a perceived threat, as will any animal!) Bears usually kill or hurt humans when they are caught by surprise by us. Predatory attacks by bears are far more infrequent. Polar bears are the most dangerous bears in North America as they are completely carnivorous and sometimes we just look a lot easier to chew on than a speedy arctic seal. (But death by polar bear is also rare!) Alligators have also been known to eat people as have sharks, however their attacks on humans are unsurprisingly - also rare! More people are killed by spiders, or other bugs or by cows than by our big predators - and actually, the most dangerous animal in North America isn't even a predator - it's the large-and-in-charge moose! More people are killed by moose (whether those moose be rutting bulls or super protective cows) than any other North American wild creature, however, the thing that kills the most people in North America isn't an animal at all, but riding/driving vehicles. The amount of people killed in vehicle accidents is astronomical compared to the number killed by wolves, bears, cougars, alligators, sharks or moose. Here's an infographic to give you an accurate picture of the situation -> www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/w… Note that wolves don't even make it onto the chart!
