Update: clean version Merychippus Gallop cycle clean by nekonotaishou

Update: added noticeable bounce to the chest as the front legs hit the ground. Added a lot more squash to the front pasterns. Added ears. Tidied up the tail a bit.

Merychippus run cycle for "Palaeo-Horsies" short.
Not done with it yet; I think the forequarters need more weight and up/down motion, the head needs more energy, and the tail needs more overlap/offset. Also, it needs ears.
It's coming together, though :)


Animated in Toon Boom Harmony.
12 frames, on ones, 24fps.
Muybridge reference used.

The software was Toon Boom Harmony. This was animated using a wacom Cintiq computer, and Eadweard Muybridge's running horse sequences were used as reference. 12 frames, on ones, at 24fps.
