Another Run Cycle by Mekko-chan Another Run Cycle by Mekko-chan
*shamefully uploads a rough animation*
I'm being a paranoid little shit now, like, what if I don't improve in time for college crap.


I still have NO idea how to get rid of those anchor points...

As someone who's been through college, I know some people entering animation programs have never even tried animating. ;) Depending on where you go, a run cycle might be the Final for your first semester, I think you'll be fine! ^^ Keep practicing though, blow 'em out of the water!

Great one!
I'd love to see you animate some expressions. That sure would be nice to watch. :)

Well, I'm worried about my skill level on animating. I'm set on going to an animation/art college...
...But I'm getting that paranoid feeling that I won't be accepted because my skills just won't meet their standards.
Or something..

I know I'm going for an art college myself, but I'm not too concerned about my skill level.
I think you have a lot of natural talent, which is a good thing! The purpose of college is to teach you how to put them to good use.
I'm trying to work on some art pieces for my portfolio. I think if the artwork you upload to DA is already this awesome, creating some portfolio pieces that put in more effort will be more than enough to get yourself into a good art college :3
I'd pursue animating myself, but my animation skills suck, and here in the US all the animation here is 3D stuff, which I don't like. :/

I think all the animation over here is also 3D stuff. 8D
I'm doomed.

I wish I can do this...
It's pretty awesome 
May I ask... What program do you use?

I used a combination of Photoshop cs3 and Adobe Flash.

Psssst.
You can torrent crack versions of both if you can't pay for the legal one. :eyes:

Q^Q can't stop looking at it

i can't see what you mean by saying it's not moving properly o,o to me it looks really smooth and flowing
but i just looked for slomo vids on youtube and found some! :3 maybe they'll help you?

Omg thank you for these links--
I knew it. There's something wrong with it's flanks...And shoulders probably.
They're supposed to bob up and down slightly with their running movement...
Is that right? I don't know if I'm actually saying correct shit or what...

:3 you're very welcome!
yah probably the shoulder should move a litte more up and down
and if you watch the dogs in the vids closely, it loweres it's head as it stretches his front legs, the nose pointing more to the ground and then moving up again
gawd X_x hard to explain in english, but i hope you get my point
but the paws and the legs seem flawless to me :D
i just read that you're thinking about going to study animation C:
don't worry too much. you're going there to learn :3 that means you don't have to do perfect animations from the beginning. often universities which teach arts don't accept people who are already on a high level because they see you as a diamond which is already shaped and perfect, so they can't teach you more. they prefer to accept the ones where they can see the talent and the willingness to learn :D and you my dear are very talented!
i hope for the best :3 and i'll keep my fingers for you!

I still don't think everything is moving 'properly' though.
And now I'm wondering how the heck I'm supposed to clean this up. :iconsulkplz:

Well to me it does, I mean it looks like a dog running xD
I wouldn't know how to help honestly. I'm not very good at animations myself so I don't think my advice would be very good lol
