Here is another piece of animation I put together. Please comment on areas of improvement, this will be going on my new demo reel. I know the sound is fake but it won't be there on my demo reel I just don't like soundless video.

Hey, this is really good! :applause:

One thing I'm noticing is that the front hoof isn't rotating much. It seems to come off the ground flat footed and land flat footed, so maybe adding some more 'ankle rotation' will make it look more real. Here's a reference video to help you out a little bit. Watch it at about 1:00 and notice how the ankles rotate throughout the walk cycle...Monster Snapping Turtle (

i personally feel that the beast is moving too fast, it seems to be very light in weight and also the tail seems to have a behaviour of its own.

Ahh... I see what both of you are talking about. I really appreciate the feedback this will only make me a better animator. My friends are always like its great and thats it but I know I need improvement and this helps me see things that I didn't really notice at first. I will post the new update later this week. Thanks again

looking nice :) try checking to see if you can fit some anticipation for his roar - almost as if he's taking a deep breath. make the viewer feel his chest inhale before the epic rawerr.
