4 Legged Walk, Canter, Run

An exercise from a few weeks back. I have always like greyhounds for their sleek athleticism so I chose to animate one. I cautiously approached the initial walk, keeping the design as a skeletal frame, resulting in a very mechanical, fairly character-less walk cycle...

When it came to the run, having briefly toyed with animating a cat...

I returned to the greyhound. I designed the thing a little more and gave it more personality in the process. He seems to be developing into some sort of crime fighting dog.

Next I decided to animate a canter, and for this I went a stage further with the character design, creating a deformed beast inspired by a mangy hyena -
