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

Oh sweet Jesus. I just realized something.
First thing: I really love the animation and I just want to clarify the misunderstanding.
Ok, so. The discussion under my comment (the Ninchiru's).
This guy is both right and wrong. Horses have four gaits, walk, trot, canter and gallop. BUT, canter is called canter only in english!
I speak polish so I know what I'm saying. In polish walk is stęp, trot is kłus, canter is galop and gallop is cwał. The meanings don't match :P
Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm just trying to lower the pressure between you. okahy, im 100% wrong 'cuz i dont know if this matches with other languages T.T

Hm. Why does he have an 4 tact gallop? I meant all his hooves touch the ground at different times. Horses usually have a three tact gallop. Does that have a special reason? No offense. I'm just asking.

Well I have no idea what you're talking about to be honest... It's an animation, not real life. Plus horses have a 4 beat gallop... not what you said. :|

Of course it's an animation and it's very well done. Sorry if it sounded as if it would be bad. Wasn't meant like that.

Well, I just know horses which touch the ground in three beats. First one hind hoof, then one hind and one front hoof and then the second front hoof. After that all hooves are in the air a short time (In Germany is that called the hovering phase). All together we call that "3 tact/beat gallop". 
Sorry if that isn't good explained. I'm not as good with English ^^;

If you thought it was well done you wouldn't have commented telling me it's wrong. 

You're thinking of a canter, I'm sure.
As I said before, the gallop is a 4-beat movement!! www.equusite.com/articles/basi…

But if we're being picky, NONE of my art on this account is anatomically correct, so this comment is completely pointless.

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.

A bit like how they animated 'The last unicorn'? She has such a delicate gait! :)

I think it would look really powerful if you drew like, bits of grass being flung up. Then it would look like he's smashing his strength into the ground in an aggressive looking way, emphasising dat POWA

 c: just a suggestion, but it's good the way it is too

This looks very, very smooth! Amazing job on it! I certainly think you succeeded in making him have a powerful-looking gallop, the involvement of his neck and the reach of his legs really show it.
