Edit: Reading all the comments, I now see that the tail and rear need some work..I'll try to fix it. Thank you everyone for your comments and advice! Not replying at the moment, but I'm reading and appreciating every one!

/end edit

I have no life. There's nothing to do irl but draw. So I'll keep posting art at least I guess.

First. EVER. wolf walk animation i've ever made.

Last time I tried this, I cried because it didn't even look like it was walking.

Been venting alot today, and Got bored and said "screw it I want to animate"

So made this.

I made all the frames before even testing it out, and I freaked out when I saw the end result.
IT ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE A WOLF WALKING.

I'm so proud of this I'm going to finish it.

Again, this is my first, so of course there might be a few..mistakes..

Turning critiques on for this one because I'd love advice.


/enjoy.

art/animation (c) me

also, look how amazing two horizontal lines can be

MY ANIMATION DOESNT SHRINK FOR ONCE

The wolf look like he's saying "I know" and he seems to be sad about something.

I see what you mean with the rump there. But, butbutbut, it works so well with the ear movements! Wolves don't bring back their eyes everytime they make a step, tcha. But now... it looks as if he's limping! =D And he's gasping in pain at every step >w<

I've always loved walk/trot/whatever cycles, simply because you can just stare at them forever and ever. And I could just stare at this one forever and ever. xD

One thing I'd like to point out is that the wolf isn't walking, he's trotting. A walk is a four beat gait, while a trot is two beat, just like the one you've got here. :3 The legs move in diagonal pairs, but in a walk the legs move individually. I'm a bit of a nerd when it comes to the specifics, but here's a helpful website if you'd like to learn more about gaits: [link] It's talking about horses, but it's the same for most, if not all, four legged animals. c:

Thank you for commenting on this.
I was wondering if this would be classified as a trot or a walk xD;
Now I see it's a trot. thanks so much for bringing it up!

That looks really good! ^^ But, it is a little rough, and the back end does need some improvement. Though, I noticed something. The tail sticking out, like it does in a lot of your pictures, actually... xD But, it would look more natural if the tail was resting. A wolf only sticks it's tail out if it's showing dominance. |D

Wow I sound like a nerd. xD

Who knows... Maybe it's Damien walking up to Ivahna and being like; BITCH, STFU.

This is really good for your first animation. :D

The only things that I noticed is that the neck and head is kinda stiff. Maybe you could add a bit more movement in them next time. Also I think you could've added a bit more frames to it, so the last frame could better into the first first frame...if that makes sense. I don't know...to me when the last frame loops/jumps back to the first frame, it sort of creates a limp for the wolf. But overall, this is very good for your first as I said and with practice you can make even better ones :D

This looks amazing for a first try :> I think the tail shrinks and grows, put more motion to it- like, make it wag instead of going like what it's right now because it looks like as if the wolf has a transforming tail XD But otherwise this is great :3

All I noticed was that the butt (LOLISAIDBUTT) seems to shrink immensely on the last few frames, probably because the other leg is beginning to drop down. I think you just need to make it higher in the last few frames. Other than that, it's great, especially how smooth it is. C:
