Update:  A few have commented on how unnatural the gait looks and so I wanted to let it be known that the reference I used was of a large, overweight dog who has hip problems, and that's why it looks so strange.

Aw the poor baby XD (your reference <3 )
At least now if you ever have to animate a character with such problems you'll have a general idea! These things come up haha :)

Haha okay thank you, I guessed as much ;)

You're welcome.
I did. I have taken a year of Pre-animation but it was incredibly disappointing because there was literally no animating.

Wow, sounds like fun...
I think I might have spoken with you before about that actually haha, I remember someone saying that, unless someone had the same experience as you!

I don't know you personally but i really liked this animation ^.^ you have talent but maybe one thing you could make the hip/upper thigh move upper and forwarder the back legs look a bit unusual. But seriously it looks like a lot of work was done to get this done really nice dude.

Thank you, friend! :) For this animation I used a reference of a video of a dog who is overweight and has hip problems, so I probably shouldn't have used it. XD So I think that's why it looks stiff and unusual, but thank you for the pointers!

Hey, it aint perfect, but that'd be damn hard lol.
I admire how much dedication you have to do this all the time when it's a slow process and must get annoying at times lol. I don't know how to do animations on computers but I have flipnote on the dsi. Used to work hard on something for an hour or so, watch it and see it was crap, hate it for a month, try again. Now I haven't picked it up in... quite a long time ^^'
(of course it didn't help that when you moved the image and tried to colour it again the dots never matched up. Plus if I simply selected something then it would all get covered in dots, extremely irritating lol.)

I've only tired traditional animation once, and it was for a school project. I've never understood how animators manage to do it traditionally with better effects then digitally. XD

The rear legs are somehow lacking in life. They don't move realistically. I suggest watching the run cycle of the wolf model from Okami and seeing the differences.

The stride seems too short and stiff, almost forced. Not natural.

The reference I used was of my dog who has hip problems and is overweight, so it probably wasn't the best video to use. I think the rear doesn't move up and down enough, but I thought the legs were alright...

Mmmm, I see. Having a stiff reference would lead to a stiff animation. That explains everything. And it's mostly the motion of the hips that was off, not the knee and ankle joints.
