Sometimes it's really hard, but gotta silence that inner voice that says it's all shit and just power through with the idea to it's finish. Take what you learn into the next round..the legs are all messed up, but it's got some nice energy I think. Will try again next year :D


For some reason it feels like it's getting worse :P
I'd need to do some proper research to make it look good, but probably just going to get it done rather than perfect and move on.

UPDATE: Jodie the Savage riding Kaia!

Current Pass:
- there's a pop between the finish and start
- the body shrinks and stretches badly
- needs overall smoothening, but ok for a rough pass I think.

This was the pass before:
- I fixed the front legs so it looks more like she's leaping forward, instead of whatever was happening below :P

I mostly do my work in the mornings before work (just 1 hour), so not sure how this will work for animation...since I usually need about an hour to wake up :P, but starting with some rough key drawings:

Runcycle Designs

Simplified skeleton (I noticed I was wrong on the hindlegs of the dog):

Dog RunCycle Prep

Filled a handfull of drawings with dogs and this quick video ref study, now it's time to get started. The longer I put off starting something, the more likely it'll never get done :P

So I'm setting myself a task to animate a dog runcycle, preferably veing ridding by Hunter Jodie. Here's a rough set up:


Had a bit of a lazy week, couple of sketches in the sketchbook:

Not sure I can say this is a storyboard since I only use one camera set up. But it's nice to do something quick and simple. These are the rough board drawings, you can see I get kind of looser, the further I got into it. I also think the sizes shrink down quite dramatically but what the hey :D

The idea came from Jodie making fun of me of getting snacks at work, I try to sneak 'em by her, but she always sniffs em out, and then I need to share! Dave does NOT share cookies! :)

ITALY: Rough Scene Complete

Ready to move on to a new little project, just posting the completed scene (Rough Boards).

BOARDS: Italy Roughs

STUDY: Sequence Captain America Civil War

Setting up where multiple characters are seems quite difficult to do, this opening scene of Civil War is really cool how the 3 characters are introduced at the start of the film. I really noticed how they try to make every shot feel like somebody is being watched.
