Re-submitting it, because while DA managed to fix its film bug and process some of the afflicted films, mine was not among those. They said the only way to fix it is to re-upload it =_=
====================================================

Update! Re-submitting this because I recently discovered that
After Effect's standard framerate for importing TGA files is 30fps. No wonder the timing felt weird to me!
Anyway, I fixed that, and now present to you the actual final result of 15 weeks of work


Finished my horse short! :happycry:

That only took 15 long weeks X_x



It now has a title. It is the ancient Greek word for "horse" and the modern Greek word for "horse": Ἵππος άλογο
Horse evolution, get it?



Eohippus --> Merychippus --> Equus ferus przewalskii (Przewalski's Horse)

Eohippus Run cycle clean by nekonotaishouMerychippus Gallop cycle clean by nekonotaishouPrzewalski's Horse Gallop Cycle Clean by nekonotaishou


100% animated & composited using Toon Boom Harmony. The backgrounds were done in photoshop.



Many thanks to my sis for her help with the backgrounds!

wow i've been seing you working on this for a while now and it looks soo awesome o w o

Well dang, that's what I get for trying to be cool with a language I don't speak XuX What is the difference in usage between either word? Is there an archaic word for "horse" in Greek? I would love to know!

no worries ; 3 ;
well ippos is more commonly used to for vehicle engines which i aheppen to not know its naming in english but still mean the same as alogo 
it's like the name kunos (κυνος,κυων-κυνός)and σκυλος-skulos which stands for dog
it's the same thing tho the first one dates back from ancient greece ; v ;
not used as much as skulos but yeah :'D

Woah this is so great *_* I remember seeing the single runcycles, why didn't I see the final thing, too? shame on me! :D

I love how smooth the single animations are, working with 24fps is something I never tried, but I adore it when someone does it that well (:
The backgrounds work nicely with the horses, too! Very smooth and fitting.
Something I really adore though, I don't know why - is the bit when the Merychippus catches up speed and is faster than the "camera" in the end - it gives the whole thing something extra dynamic. (:
love it! everything fits well together.  :heart:

Oh, this is supposed to be about evolution? I thought it was, like, a horse running through its lifetime. Colt > Stallion > ...old horse.

:iconnekonotaishou:
nekonotaishou Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2014  Professional Filmographer
Ah, no no, it's about evolution. Horses don't have extra toes at any stage of their lives, and to my knowledge they don't change color that drastically.

salk32 Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2014
I didn't notice the toes, and I wasn't sure about the color (artistic license and all that).

Thanks. I have thought of it, and given the opportunity I would like to add shading on at least two of the three cycles. Also some of the backgrounds could use touch ups.
