WORK IN PROGRESS!
During class last week I randomly doodled a run cycle in my sketchbook and when I came home I fotographed it and tested it as an animation. Surprisingly it worked quite well so I decided to make it a run cycle animation for my character Maraya, obviously before she acquired that leg injury.
I used a slow motion video of a cat as reference material, mainly to fix the error in the order in which the paws hit the ground. Maraya is "left-handed" meaning her left frontpaw is the first to hit the ground.
I've still got a lot of stuff to fix about it, animate the face and add the hair and all that... but I wanted to share what I've got so far in hope you guys might spot mistakes where I've not noticed them so far
Feel free to critique but please do keep in mind it's still work in progress!
