See Spyro Run! by TheMeekWarrior See Spyro Run! by TheMeekWarrior
My first-ever run cycle animation! :la: Isn't it glorious?!
Not really. I didn't go for detail so much as the run cycle itself; I'm trying to get down natural movement.
So please enjoy. :dance:

EDIT 2/7 - Fixed a back foot stall and tail movement.

How long did it take and how did you do it? (Im clueless in animation,as my niche is welding and machining, but I know a lot about computers)

I only have 1 drawing up though.

It's not really. ^^; But thank you!!

This took me hours to do. Each frame was hand-drawn using transparency in GIMP.

It's really something you learn by yourself; just watch how an animal runs, if you have pets, or go on YouTube or even look at other artists' work. You draw each picture to go together to create a natural-looking run-cycle. :) And thank you!

I used GIMP and drew each frame individually by changing the opacity of the layers and saved it as a .gif file. Spyro's head was just a copy/paste after a while though, as you can see from his head subtly changing shape...
