... and another animated Scene, I keep doing running creatures cause that's the best training :XD:

Anyway, I wanted to animate Yang since ages, and I already have a fave image of him, so I used that one as base ;)

again, it's no frame-by-frame animation, it's done using the puppet Tool in AfterEffects and some more other effects and stuff added :)
First time that I added an animated reflection, also used a dog gallop dia as reference for the movement, hope it looks a bit more decent.

Just thought I share as the people seem to like those scenes, not really much happening there though ^^;

EDIT: well just ignore the head, it's looking like that because of the baseimage I used ( [link] ) not sure if I can change that, would need to draw the head completely new, it's hard to change those animations though...

EDIT 2: changed the HEAD and some other small parts, hope it looks better now ;)

An invalid argument.
Better examples exist.
Difficulty is only a limitation of an individual. Not a factor in the effort achieved.

If you think the person was so incapable to create a good animation then I would like to see you do a better job, if this is what is considered to be 'lazy' then you must know an awful lot to make that judgment.

It's easy to make animation when you just use the life like...

PUPPET TOOL!

Right, you think making an animation with a puppet tool is easy. Now you demonstrate and we'll compare the two animations.

Hey, could you post (maybe in scraps) the base file/layers you used before making it puppet? I'm just wondering how you started and what parts your separated before making this. From what I can see- each legg is a layer, the tail, and the body. Eyes are separate (or at least blinking) I assume?

I really like the flow you have on these and am trying to get a good puppet set up going for my characters as well. =3
keep up the good work!

Lizkay Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
As for the layers, I used one for each leg, the tail, three for the body (belly, head/neck, back) Eyes are part of the head
layer (precomposition-wise) ;)
the only base file I had for the puppet animation was an animated wave-line for the spine, and I looked at various dog/cat videos to see when
which leg has to touch the ground. (I marked the legs with numbers and a dot on the background marked the frame when this leg has to be on the ground and so on)
I am afraid I don't really have those things available anymore to upload (they where only help-lines and guides I removed after the animation was done ^^;)
hope that description could help you none the less :)

Initially it was a character of one of my old stories/comics that never got finished, but I loved this character so much that I let it live on ;)
he is supposed to be a gryphon hybrid, otter-like body with a newt-like fin

I would think that when he's extended, instead of having his head look down, he'd tilt his chin up to keep it at the same angle and stretch out his neck a little.

Also, his right forepaw should be turned away from the viewer more.

But otherwise this is awesome.
