Download if needed to see little Mary in motion :D
I dare to say this is my best animation so far, also the only good one I've ever made of this cutie little fox everybody loves so much uwu
I've wanted to put her in motion for a long while, yes I did, and today was the day I finally made it!
Yay me!
So I made a run cycle, I've got some refs and all and I'm sure it's still not perfect so if anyone has any critiques to make, go ahead!
Let's see, it's 24 fps, a total of 20 frames, made in Adobe Flash. In case you're wondering.
Here's a gif of the sketch, too, it's not important but I wanted to show [link]
So yes, do enjoy, critique, just tell me what you think owo <3

Mary+animation are by me, *ThatWildMary

Very impressive. Some of the fur is a bit jittery, though. To help with that I would suggest that you reduce the number of tufts near the neck and tail so you can concentrate on the larger movements, and that will help to smooth out the overall animation. Thus, you would keep the general tuft groups where they are, but make fewer /\/\/\/\ patterns in each group to make it easier to draw the frames, because the uneven differences in the fur direction are what's causing the jittery motion.

What you did extremely well was the leg positioning. It looks like a real animal running. Did you use skeletal lines before you started the outline sketch?

Not that I have any room to actually criticize you work or anything, because I can't draw to save my life. :XD:

Oh thank you, animating fur is hard, guess it would be better to keep it simple~
I used a pretty simple skeleton-like sketch in the beginning~ Still, one of her paws looks weird and I don't know why though, but yeah, there's always something to learn~~
But well, thank you for the critiques uwu

Único detalhe que me incomoda é a pata dianteira direita, que parece que dá um lag ou sei lá o que, o movimento dela não ficou muito ~smooth~, MAS fora isso o resto tá tinindo <3 Talvez se fossem um pouco menos fps o movimento ficaria mais realista, minha opinião. Mas djldfja;dfgjskf ficou tão bonito, eu fico assistindo por meia hora e afalhdf;jhkf
