Since I currently don't have a tablet, I've turned to practicing 3D animation to pass the time.


This is my first ever completed horse walk cycle in any medium. I know it's not perfect, or 'pro quality', but I'm satisfied with it for my first try :)

Used Eadweard Muybridge sequences and greenscreenanimals as reference.


I don't know what that shape on the front leg is. Probably something caused by the render settings


Animated in Maya 2013

Model downloaded from [link]


Extra-blah-stuff: I had to clean up the skin weights of the elbows, since every time I posed the front legs the chest collapsed in on itself and shrunk.

It's a rigged 3D model made specifically for animation, animated in a professional 3D animation program. I don't know what a pose tool is.

It's really good for the first attempt. Animation is about getting creative- not getting close to real !

Thanks!

Well, the industry I hope to go into requires them to get as close to real as possible, so I was actually aiming for realsism.

Hi !  Thanks for the reply.
 
      Are you learning animation professionally in an art school ? I like animating - just for  hobby. Will it be ok with you to share your project files- I mean whatever you are willing to share. I am experimenting and it'll be a good thing if I have project files for my study.
