I'll be making an Inu Shiba, because voltari obscur indirectly asked all of us to, and I am one of all of us (you are, too)
Also, because they're mighty cute

I was thinking about doing some crazy animation about jumping fire rings and biting crook asses and receiving medals, but instead I'll just simply do a walking cycle, and try to do it DAMN GOOD.

I'm gonna go with a St. Bernard on this one. Always loved their characteristic heads!



Not going to forget the famous brandy barrel either, of course.

Always wanted to make something funny and cartoonish for a challenge. I guess this might be a good time.

Here's a WIP:

Btw Nevercreature, that definitely looks awesome.

Obviously far from done, but I don't know if I have much more time as I will be away during the weekend...


Huh what? Why does this look completely retarded in my firefox? I thought this browser could handle 5/100 FPS... :?

I tried something but really don't like the result...



Any critic welcome

@Assyrius : Very nice, hope you'll finish it.
@Nevercreature : Love the colors, awesome.
@ A2J2TIWARI : I like the style, very funny and cartoon indeed.
@hapiel : Very nice idea, awesome

I don't know why, but I don't see the picture (Tried with Firefox and Opera...).
So, Here's the link to see the image :(


Edit : Problem solved, maybe might I go to sleep ^^

Not sure if this looks any better than the previous version.

But here's an UPDATE:

Here's an update of mine. I was thinking of making him lick his nose, but otherwise this will probably be the final version.



@kaze19th: I like what you're going for. You should probably put some frames in between to make it smoother.

@A2J2TIWARI: The cape moves nicely! The shading improves the piece, but I would get rid of the flashing on the ears.

This is the first challenge I've participated in. Because of my username I was thinking of making a poodle at first, but I decided on a bulldog instead.

I have next to no experience in animation so I'm just making it simple. I'm not entirely happy with it so I might make some small changes. Critique is welcome

I don't really like the bite animation :(
Should I just go with the first animation, or maybe try to redo the bite?

Well done so far :)
How about making the bounce less rythmic? Give him some rest in the top or bottom position! And maybe play with his tail :).
Also his right back paw makes him look a bit like a teddy bear
I like his eyes :)

Not satisfied by my old sprite, I am gonna submit it though. Here's another idea:

Probably gonna keep it in two colors.

I made a few subtle changes to my sprite and I also added a tail animation and changed the head bounce like Hapiel suggested.

It definitely looks a bit better now, although the tail looks a little choppy when it moves but I'll probably be too busy to fix it before the deadline.
It's not a very detailed animation but I did learn a little bit from it. :)
