We had to do a walk cycle + any other type of cycle of our choice for my class, animation principles.
I chose a run cycle with a wolf running. The idea of actually showing a wolf being sketched out was done for 2 reasons.
1. It made the animation stand out from the rest of the class, as it was something no one else thought of ..so far.
2. I..uh...can't color very well, I can barely draw. So it was easier for me to keep the wolf as a "sketch" than do a proper outline and color it.
I even had to draw the wolf out frame by frame on paper and then trace over it with a tablet. So shameful. :(
It took over 6 hours to do this animation. But it was well worth it...sort of.
Results for this assignment came in today. My prof wants to see the "original" files. She doesn't believe I did it probably. I hate when I am underestimated. Bah!
