I watched Disney's Tarzan movie for the first time in a long, long time. feeeeeeeeels~ Was super happy to spot my clean-up teacher's name in the credits <3
On a technical view: Holy S***!! ;A;

Inspired!



So have a leopard-y cat being cat-like. Fun noodly-excercise animations :D

Update: added a few more frames, tweaked the timing of the jump and landing. Tried to fix those horrible sliding back paws.

I love leopards, even if this is only leopard-y :D (as I said on another one of your videos!)

Me gusta como animaste el movimiento inicial y la anticipación del salto :) En cuanto al salto en sí, es demasiado rápido para el gatote XP está bien para animales más pequeños, tal vez si fuera un gatito haha CX En este caso, solo sería agregarle algunos cuadros más al salto y/o extender un poco la duración de los que ya tienes. Ya la caída sería algo parecido, dependiendo del estilo de "timing" que le hayas dado al salto le podrías extender un poco la duración a los cuadros para que la velocidad del movimiento correspondiera, y para el detalle tal vez se deslizaría hacia la izquierda por el peso del animal (aunque tomando en cuenta la inclinación del terreno, no sería mucho).

Pero para ser solo el boceto, diría que te quedó excelente, muy buen trabajo :D

Nice! The only critique i can make (and it's a pretty feeble one), is that the tail in the last frames should have some movement? It remains kinda static when it should be affected by the whiplash of the fall and further movement of the cat? But that is it.

For a "noodle", it's pretty damn nice!

Oh i saw this movie in a cinema in the States, brought a tiny otter plushie there, was so enthralled by the movie i chewed its whiskers (which were made of plastic) to gnarly stubs (we had to cut them of). Still one of my fav disney movies.

You're right about the tail. :stare: how did I, the person who loves whipping tails around, miss that??


Thank youuu!

Aw, poor otter whiskers! D8 they need those to feel for shellfish and stuff, you know!

I think I watched in the states, too. But it may have been Canada. Don't remember... What I most remember is a seat towards the back, kinda pressed against the wall, and the scene where Clayton dies freaking me out. I was all huddled against the wall, because this was the first time I'd ever seen a human villain die like that in an animated movie.

Oh noes! What have i done! ;A; Well, now she's disabled but i treat her well. :>

At first i didn't notice how he died, i thought he just fell and that was it. I was probably to focused on Tarzan's thighs to notice the shadow of the hanged man? Idk.

Ah, well, then it's ok. Have some adorable otter video links www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod… (baby sea otters, OMFG!) www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCtgKu… arthritic sea otter playing basketball!


I think the only reason I noticed it was because I had a good view of the entire screen. But yeah, that movie is sooo distracting! One of my animation teachers put it on as background noise last year, and I just stopped working and watched it 0.0

AGHFXS. So much cuteness! :love:

Huhu, yeah, bad call, that also happens to me though. I might open a chapter of a series or some random video of an animal and end up watching the entire thing! :1

FFF this is looking amazing :D I love how smooth the animation is, especially as the cat bunches up preparing to spring :D
The only thing I notice is that the leap is perhaps too short with respect to the mass of the animal, I reckon inertia should have carried the cat a little father to the left, near the border of the frame :D
But other than that, it's a brilliant animation as always, the movements are clear and spot-on, I love it! :la:
