My first attempt at a cat running. :dummy: It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be, but that may just be because I had a good reference. I slowed it down a bit otherwise the .swf file will ghost the movements.

The head was tweened then traced over. Limbs were all drawn separately.
Flash CS4
4-10 hours

Okay, I guess that's fine.  To colour it you could use Paint or Photoshop or Gimp, or any colouring program really.

Maybe this will help: sta.sh/01kjoscxm4ud
If you download and unzip the file it has the individual frames for you to colour.  There are different formats that you wan choose from.

very fluent animation:)

There is one thing Im little confused about.
The left back leg is the lead leg ( it is put always ahead of the right one after the right leg makes contact with the ground) but the front left leg is hitting the ground before the front right leg does... shouldn't the front-right-leg make contact with the ground before front left leg? XD

Im not too familiar with cats running so I may be wrong. I have so far animated only galloping horses and canines for practice, but if my memory is correct cats share similar running pattern.


Wrong or not still nice and fluent animation:)

Aliuh Featured By Owner May 11, 2016
Thank you. :)

I had never noticed before.  You're right that with horses it's the other way, but for some reason the reference I used of my cat has her doing it the way I've done in the animation.  [Link]  I don't even know if that is the usual way cats run or not. XD

Hmm, you're not like other popular artists I see. It's very inspiring :D. I really like you so I'd like to directly ask you to join Auraclan, my clan in clansofashforest.deviantart.co…. We are falling behind the other clans and we are desperately running out of cats. 

We we are making a MCPE Roleplay server. 

You can be my deputy or medicine cat ^_^

Thank you. :)  I think you're the first to ever refer to me as popular. XD Thank you for that.
And thanks for the invitation! But I know nothing about warrior cats, and I don't roleplay.  What is the group for?  And would I be expected to roleplay? XD

SnowfireTheWarrior Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2016
There will be a McPe group (which I'm making) and it will have an ip thus people from all over the world can join ^_^. If you want to read the series, I have a link to a pdf which is the first book. Or~

you can watch this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XYgtS…


Heres episode 2 part 3 because the YouTube version is muted for copyright: www.dropbox.com/s/tdbuta4cvfzh…

Its the first 5 chapters of warriors spread in all 5 or so episodes. I'll give you a run-down. It's confusing the first time ^^'.



Prolog

Tigerclaw, Redtail (the deputy) and the rest of Thunderclan fights Riverclan for Sunningrocks. Tigerclaw is a vicious fighter but Redtail decides that the fight is too outnumbered and tells Thunderclan to retreat.


A house cat named Rusty has a dream about catching a mouse until he was woken by a siren-like sound Comming from the forest. He wakes up in his basket and looks around. After deciding he isn't tired, he has a quick bite of his food and stares out into the forest. Just as he was about to jump out into the forest, his best friend smudge stops him and tells him that the forest is a dangourus places filled with savage wild cats. Rusty ignores him and tried to hunt a mouse (like his dream) but hesitates too long and misses.

Watch the animation in full for the whole (few) chapters ^^



If you'd prefer the books, note me for a link to the first book

Sounds interesting.  Unfortunately I can't watch videos or download large files with my internet package. ^^;

I've always been curious of the series, but I have too many other books on the go at the moment.  I will definitely come back to it someday though.

As for the group, I don't think it's right for me.  But maybe I'll come back after I read them!

I have to ask, do you use tweens in your animations? ^^
Reply
:iconaliuh:
Aliuh Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2016
Thank you! :la:  That means a lot to me.

I do sometimes use tweens to trace over and delete after.  I never leave them in the animation though.  For this one, I believe I tweened the foot of the hind legs and the head, but nothing else. :)
