Long: Coming soon
Curly: Coming soon

Complete pack: Coming soon :D

Hey again!
The Tokota Run Cycle Template has been one of my most successful templates, I've decided to keep going! A few people said they would love to use the template, however they had no natural mane Tokos. So here's the first alternate manetype, Sphinx! Now that I've made this, making the half-man and short mane will be easier, so those should be right around the corner. Curly and long mane needs a bit special attention, but make sure to let me know if you're interested so I know which one I should do next. I understand Barbary types are super rare, so I probably will do that one last, but I will try to get it done for the sake of getting a complete set. 

Once I have finshed them all I'll make a "full set" available for purchase, where you can get all 8 types for the price of - I'm thinking 50% off? So 12$ for all 8 manetype-cycles. I wish deviantArt would let me add "expansion packs", so for those who already have the natural mane, you could by this for 1$ or something. I have no idea how I'd go about doing that though. For now I will just sell each cycle for 3$, so you can pick and pay for only the cycles/manetypes you use. 

Please let me know if you're one of the people holding off buying this because you'd rather wait for the full pack!
If there's enough of you, I could sort out some sort of pre-order system - this would ensure that I really make the whole pack :) I understand that people won't buy one manetype if they know they can get them all for cheaper later - but then again, if no one buys the templates as I make them, I'll just stop making them. I'm so sorry to make it all about money, but as I've just started a business, I can't justify spending a lot of time on things that don't give a payoff. v_v I really like working on Tokotas and Templates, so I'd totally LOVE for my work to also be economically justified! :U I hope you understand!

EDIT: Looks like quite a few of you would consider buying the pack! Great! I've decided to keep up production, and try to get all of them done! It'll take some time, but I want to finish them all before offering the complete pack for purchase. I'm aiming for july - but I'm not promising anything ._. Please go ahead and nag me about this frequently so I get it done sooner rather than later :'D 

:icontokotas: 

Tokotas are a closed species owned by the Tokota-group, and you need to get your Tokota character accepted by the group. I'd prefer it if you were a part of that group if you decide to use this for your Tokota character, but if you're crafty, feel free to re-purpose the line-art to make it into a big, "regular" wolf or even a grand danois? Once you've bought it, you can use it for anything :)

Also, just to be clear, if you've already bought the natural mane run cycle template, you're absolutely free to re-draw the lines of that and make your own Sphinx mane type. This is just an option for those who maybe don't have natural mane Tokos, or just want an easier job :) 


This cheap template can be used for pretty much anything!

Bullet; Yellow Reference sheets
Bullet; Yellow RPing
Bullet; Yellow Animation exercise
Bullet; Yellow Individual frames can be used in comics, series and such
Bullet; Yellow Reference
Bullet; Yellow Anything you can imagine! If you're in doubt, ask me! 

Do feel free to edit the template in any way you'd like, you could just colour it, or you could redraw the entire line-art to make it more your style, add hair, or change it's look however you'd like. It's yours to keep and do whatever you'd like to do with it!

Click here to buy the template with PayPal! (3$): sellfy.com/p/VZJ7/

This download comes as a Zipped folder, and contains the following:

Bullet; White 1 PSD file containing all frames as layers (arranged and ready for animating)

If you're not sure how to use this, perhaps this quick tutorial can be helpful: panasonja.blogspot.no/2013/04/…
Otherwise you can commission me to colour it for you! (20-40£, depending on the complexity of your character)


:bookdiva: Rules! :bookdiva:

:heart: You don't HAVE to credit me, but it would be super appreciated! Also if you let me know that you've used this template, I will add a link in this description so more people get to see it :)

See the awesome ways others have used the template! :la:

I might, after I've finished all the tokotas! It would be a whole new walk cycle though, so it would require some work. If enough people request it then I definitely will!

ohh, tokis :u 
Maybe I'll do it after I've finished all the variations - it'd have to be a whole new run cycle. How common are Tokis? Compared to maybe sphinx, or barbary? I'm still so new to Tokotas :'D 
RuneHarpy's avatar
RuneHarpyStudent General Artist
Well, Tokis are getting more and more common I think! It's quite nice to see all these stubby tokotas happening xD

Hey there! Do you have the sellfy thingy like the Normal mane does? I'm making an icon for my tok group and I thought I'd be cool if I used your animation. C:

Thanks for asking me, I totally forgot about doing that..! It's great if you want to use it as the groups icon! Nice :la:

I need to wait on buying one/any of these anyway, as I don't yet own a tokota.

Oh cool, thank you for letting me know! Good luck on getting a Tokota ^u^
Thlyatara's avatar
No problem, and thank you! I have an adoption form filed, but if that falls through my tribe leader is willing to give me a geno! So getting one is assured at least.

Ever think about doing a halfie? c:
Panimated's avatar
PanimatedProfessional Filmographer
I'll be doing all of the manetypes eventually! And since halfies are pretty similar to the normal/sphinx, I think that'll be the one I'll do next :meow:

Yay! I just recently got a halfie and I would love to use her for animation practice. <3
