Hi! Animation is great. Front legs and paws are perfect. There is a bit of trouble with rear legs. First of all it looks as if it hurts steppign on them. Maybe, you could make paws a wee bit bigger to make them softly stomp as front? Secondly, shape of thighs is like that of a human. Even very fuzzy dogs don't have streight tights. There should be cavity on rear side just above thickest part of leg. And skin on this cavity holds strong so it doesn't stretch all the way from bum to knee. Hopefully, I managed explain clearly. It's nice stuff so you don't really have to improve it.
I really appreciate the fluidity of this. It moves through and loops wonderfully. On another note, I would like to disagree with NeoYojik. The movement and contact points adds a sense of weight for the viewer. Having a distinct style is also a great thing to have if you ever plan on submitting a reel to anyone or even a portfolio, it'll make you stand out and will show in better detail your evolution as an artist.
However, I think this piece can benefit from more movement of the neck and head, the rest of the body is constantly movement but the head and neck comes off as stiff, usually with canines there is at least a little head movement. But, if it is a small dog they can have little head movement, the bigger the canine, the bigger the movement though. This goes for all animals. The size can easily be better determined if a background is added.
I hope to see the finished project. This is a very stylized and lovely trot cycle so far.
Hmmmm. If you want critique, the upper body is too stiff. You've got great movement in the legs, but the rest just doesn't seem to follow right. Like, thee tire body moves "upwards" right at the same point altogether, but I think the hips should bump slightly as the back leg lifts off the ground? Sorry I'm bad at critique XD and I think you should give the neck and hair some more natural movement as well
LOL that's alright. I do want to revist this some time soon. my animations folder isnt much xD I wish I had more real animations to put in it vmv I'm thinking of doing simple gif animation commissions soon. Like run cycles and such.
Same, most of my finished animations are on YouTube because of dA's copyright laws with music and such though there's nothing I'm really proud of anymore haha
And that would be cool, people like animations XD I would do that too but if just put too much effort into it and either get bored or run out of time so for animations I stick to the little icons and loops I've already done
This is quite amazing only thing i have add, since i haven't seen anyone comment on it yet, is make the body a little longer cause to me, with such long legs they actually should be hitting each other. Other than that this is fantastic!! <3
I'm gonna write a tiny critique in a comment right here~
Overall, this is awesome!! I love how smooth it is, it's very well animated in general, hahah! I would recommend making the head move just a little. Like, not have it stay in the same place so much. U//o//U;; That's pretty much all i have to say, hahaha!
