run cycle  (8 frames) by mechanicalmasochist run cycle  (8 frames) by mechanicalmasochist
8 frame run cycle of my rat lynx fursona
no reference used.


Tried to use a soft colour palette , but ma'n spots are hard to animate haha.

her tail looks weird but whatever
her back legs could use a bit more oomf too.
______________________________________________
IF YOU ARE GOING TO CRITIQUE:

please don't just say, the tail looks stiff
or the head is off
because that is not helpful and not something i don't already know,
instead link me to a tutorial or example or something that will help .

I don't learn well from written but more visual ...so urm yes.

my first rodent run cycle so yay?

She gets away with running like this for she is part cat right? XD

Maso/flighty rat (c)me

i really like the consistency and the smooth movement but if i make an educated critique?
I have no intention of offending you.
when rats run their front paw do not meet up with their back paws so really when they run its more of really fast hops. and the back paws should be a great deal size larger then the front.
i hope this will help in any way, again no offense it looks really good, these are just pointers and tips for if you have plans on making another run cycle. and i understand the fact that she is part cat ><;

It looks like the frames are out of order, The legs meet, and then it sorta looks like she trips before she goes along, like one of the frames was flipped. Or at the least that one was duplicated. I might look at each frame individually near where the legs meet.

none of the frames are duplicates and all are drawn separate, are you sure its not lagging?
I mean are all 8 frames showing at the right time because I know animations can glitch like that. ^^;

I thought that could be it because you mentioned repeat frames ^^
but thanks anyway :3

Hmm, I personally think since her back legs are bigger than her front, she should have more of a hop to her step, :)

Amazing as always! (:

The only thing except those you mentioned would be.... The back leg closest to the viewer. When it flicks up, it should behave like the tail, and flop a little.


Gosh I'm terrible at explaining, can someone else who sees this say it more clearly?
