I'm enjoying the start of the new Animals and Creatures course. I've already learnt all kinds of interesting things, but animating quadrupeds in a realistic manner is going to be a big challenge.
I'm sure people are interested to see what the new course consists of, so I'll do my best to post on semi-regular basis so you can watch my progress.
Week 1, we had to do a couple of still poses that were dynamic with nice lines of action, showing weight etc.
Week 2, we had to do vanilla walk cycle.
We're just starting Week 3 now, where we do an advanced walk.
I'm finding it a challenge getting to grips with the rig (for example in the pouncing pose, I couldn't get those front arms bent to match the photo), but I think I'm starting to get the hang of it.
Here are my poses - I'll post the walk cycle in the next couple of days.
Thanks for reading!
