Did a quick gallop animation in photoshop that I quite liked, so I decided to use it for the up-coming trailer! Ace was interesting to animate...since he's so skinny and has such a sparse mane and tail! Not sure if that's apparent here, but I did TRY to animate him as close to model as I could Hope he looks somewhat Thoroughbred/y!
This is 'hopefully' going to be an animated segment from page five of issue 1:
It's not perfect...There are a few buggy things in his movement/his mane annoys the hell out of me...but I quite like it! X) So yeah...I know everyone loves to crit animation, and I appreciate the gesture, but unless it's something you don't think I can see myself/really important, please no crits?
It's a finished piece, and I'm not going to go back and change anything!
Animated in Flash CS5, with 13 frames on two's at 25 fps (26 frames in total!)
