MOTU - Battle Cat Run-Cycle - 2 by paulrich MOTU - Battle Cat Run-Cycle - 2 by paulrich
A new GIF of my fan-art Battle Cat's run cycle, with updated materials, tweaked helmet, and some physics added to the fur.

Created in Blender.

The animation feels a little awkward? Like it's too slow? Try speeding it up, run cycles are very fast. Also try referencing some big cat runs? This is from Muybridge's small cat sequence, isn't it? Try something like this www.gettyimages.com/detail/vid… with more weight and overall faster.

Also I cannot help but notice that you gave it very prominent genitals? Um, if this character is based on a cat, they wouldn't really be that visible www.merckvetmanual.com/cat-own…


The fur texture looks really nice, though! And the rig looks really flexible. Very nice job with the feet poses.

Thank you for the comments.

Yeah, I usually put a disclaimer in the comments about the genitalia.  It's technically a cat-like alien creature.  I'm aware his junk is a little more canine-like here.  My day job for the past 17 years has been heavily involved with dogs and cats, so I'm all too familiar.

As far as the speed goes...  it's just the GIF version of the animation.  I don't mind it running in a bit of slow-mo.  I hope to one day get to the point where I have decent simulated musculature underneath with proper physics and jiggle.

I didn't base it on the Muybridge thing, but the thing I did base it on might have been.  Thanks for sharing the link.  :-)
