Shydog Walk Cycle by GreekCeltic Shydog Walk Cycle by GreekCeltic
I couldn't find a category for animation that wasn't flash, haha. This was done in photoshop CS5.

I don't animate. I don't have the patience or desire for it, and I'm not really sure what got this started.

Yeeeeah.. :I Ignore the markings. I know they're not supposed to move like that. The body isn't fluid like I would have wanted, but for whatever reason I didn't spend as much time mapping out the movement of the entire body as I should have. This really isn't how Shydog moves in my head.
Still a thing though!

I have no intention of working on this anymore, XD it was just a pass time for the night.

For someone who doesn't have a desire for animation, this is very well done.

uhm... it would have worked better without the striped... it throughs the animation off a bit... also a few more frames would have made it waaaay more fluid ... and i suggest you darken down the legs in the back cause someone can have difficulties to differ them while watching being coloured in nearly the same saturation

either way its a great attempt on animation considering its so hard to do

This. Is. AWESOME. Especially that you had to move all the markings with the frames o.o

her tail markings look kinda like a slinky

Oh my dear goshhhh, this is so amazing. I love how fluid this is!
Also, I'm going to say that although all of your characters are really awesome (especially Gethin with his awesome claws), Shydog's got such a fantastic design. I've never been able to create a striped character that doesn't look ridiculous, but you pull it off so well with Shydog!

walking stripes must be difficult o.o

Very nice. For a pastime for the night, this is actually pretty darn good. The stripes along her tail could use a little more work (in terms of positioning, they move around a lot when she moves ;P ). Since you're not going to fiddle it any longer, I think it's best just to leave it at that. I also like how you included the Cat's Eye along her quills in the animation. Great touch.

Now, go for an animation transformation sequence from Cara to Shydog!! (Lol, I kid, I kid) That would just be a bugger to draw, for sure.

yaaaay walk cycles, despite being a common thing, they are always really interesting for me.Although is it just me or does the right hind foot only touch the ground for one frame and then float in the rest? I don't know, it could just be me hahaha. xD
Anyway, I just thought I'd point it out! But this is really great!
