Looking back at this now after only four months, I realize how awkward the movements are. XD  Not a very good run cycle at all, is it...

Yes, Gradients. :)  They were far easier and quicker then colouring the legs in manually.

It will be for me, lol i never animated a horse in 2D form, so itll be a good start, my friend said it looked more like a canter, so maybe i can use it for a canter ref, is there a way i could download it? i tried downloading the file to it but it wouldnt let me and wont let me save it lol

Okay. XD You should be able to download it by right clicking the download button and selecting "Save link as..." or "Save Target as..."

The body position of the horse suggests that it is cantering or in the lope as I think it's called in America. However the legs hit the ground at four separate times typical of the gallop, this creates a four beat rhythm. The legs would need to stretch a little further and the neck stretched and lowered for the horse to be at a full gallop.
If the horse was to canter or lope then the legs would fall in a three beat rhythm with the one of the rear legs hitting the ground at the same time as the opposite front leg does. Other than that I really like how smooth the motion is. It all flows very nicely and neatly.

Hopefully this helps you ^^

So its something in between, then? XD  The reference I used was of a horse trudging through the snow, so it wasn't the best choice and probably is what gave it the odd movement.

Thank you! It does help. :)

Generally when horses gallop or run there necks are flat out when they stretch they're legs, it gives them more momentum, this looks more of a form the someone would train into they're horse. But that just my opinion. :)

It might be that it was trained.  I used a reference online that I've lost the link to, and the head didn't move much.  Something about my animation isn't quite right though, and that's probably it. XD Thanks.

Hmm...

It might be better if it moved a bit faster. This seems more like galloping speed, and if it was galloping it would/should be less smooth.

I slowed it down a bit because the file type ghosts the fast moving parts I find. It still does it at this speed even. DX

In fact, I think that ghosts could look a little more realistic, because are mind makes us see them in real life, too. Animations with ghosts wouldn't look all that bad and might actually show how fast the animal is really going.

Hmm. A good point.  I never really considered adding motion blur in an animation.  I'll have to try that! :) Thanks.

Well, if I understand correctly it's not all that bad. Wave your hand or something around and you'll see them in real life as well.

I see a bit of clipping on your jawline and your tail is positioned too low there, but overall the movement feels biological. :D Good job!

Thanks for pointing the jaw out to me so I can fix it, I had missed that. :) I have to say I agree about the tail, but its the best tail I've ever managed and I fear ruining it at this point. XD
