Here's Flash's gallop WIP! To go alongside his guards, Vincent and 'Cross-galloping' Ace! 
Vincent Gallop - Size Test animation WIP by Wild-HeartsAce Gallop - Coloured by Wild-Hearts

He's trying out a new look with blue hair! I hoped to make Flash have a powerful looking gallop...not sure if I succeeded but I like it enough! These will be running on one's in the final piece (they currently run on two's so they're a little slower) Unto Delvin and Grane! (may do the good guys too....but I need to storyboard the thing properly first to see how to work out the scenes!) In which case, Darko's gallop will be similar to this! :)

Incase you're wondering, I'm making these for my Comic Trailer -- which is just a slow moving side project of mine around my class animations! ^^ TotH takes a back seat with all these assignments coming in unfortunately :faint: 

Flash was animated in flash....huurhurr

This animation is awesome! You did amazing :)
I can feel the pull of those muscles, and he gives off the impression of being very heavy; you wouldn't want him to step on you! :ohnoes:

Kudos to you for attempting this. I hear a horse is one of the hardest things in the world to draw, to say nothing of animate. There are so many parts moving at once, and you have to pay close attention because a horse expert will pick out an error in a heartbeat.

Thanks a lot Dear :aww: 
Animating horses is a huggee pain! But I guess it helps immensely if you draw them as much as I do! ;P 
I'd love to see Terence animated some day...;) 
Practice makes perfect, like they say. And if that ever happens, I'll start out small and simple.

If you want to give it a try someday, you have my permission. Since Terence is a unicorn, we can bend the rules of anatomy a little. His gait is a lot smoother and less bouncy than that of a horse. You could take a nap on his back if you wanted to; you'd only fall off if you rolled over too much.

He does have a very powerful gallop! It was the first thing I noticed. :)

He does look very powerful! But he'll get his one day >/
