Today's shark is the Epaulette Shark! :iconkermityayplz:

Hemiscyllium ocellatum

I've loved Epaulette Sharks since I first saw them in Blue Planet many, many years ago. For a love that great, something more than a sketch or a doodle was necessary. So have a (relatively) quick and simple cycle.

This animation is not made up, they actually do this. They're sharks that get walk cycles :B

Super simplified for animation purposes.

Toon Boom Harmony 10.0
8 drawings, 16 frames
24fps

They're tiny sharks. They're not a threat to humans :)

Great. We're all doomed. Sentenced to a death of adorable and deadly teeth. What fun.

There are several species of cat shark that also walk, but epaulette sharks typically walk/crawl more often. The coral cat shark and the bamboo cat shark are examples of other "walking" sharks.

Saw the video and I thought only a certain catfish could do that. I started laughing. Nice job, simple but good.

GAH that's fucking precious. Volumes stay consistent and I love the wavy motion in the tail! The back fin's bottom edge wiggles a bit, but that's the only issue I noticed. holy god I just wanna eat this thing up
