Bounding Albatrion? rough by DarkmaneTheWerewolf Bounding Albatrion? rough by DarkmaneTheWerewolf
This is not a run cycle. Rather, a jump-cycle or bounding cycle of sorts.

I'm just trying to figure out the physics and motion involved in such a cycle for another project, hence the sine wave and such. I made it into a rough Albatrion for lols because it sorta started to look like his charge except it isn't because the charge is a proper run ><.

This didn't actually work as I planned for reasons i will not divulge so soon, but it looked sorta neat.

Just 10 frames, all done in GIMP including compositing.

Albatrion belongs to Capcom

Now that you mention lightning claws, I could see a slap-happy Zinogre/Jinouga doing this too. :D

Well, i do have animation principle guides on my gallery which link to my Youtube. They're all based on what i learnt at university and illustrate the techniques i developed too.

Nothing will turn you into an amazing animator overnight though, it does take a lot of practice, dedication and study.

More information about my commissions can be found here: [link]

They do cost money and require a Paypal. Make sure to check prices in your own currency first as my prices are all in British Pounds.

I do not do this sort of thing for free.

DarkmaneTheWerewolf Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2012  Professional General Artist
It is possible, but extremely difficult to do with a mouse. I personally use a Graphics Tablet or i draw it straight onto my Tablet PC. You could also consider drawing straight onto paper and scanning each frame onto your computer for compositing and editing.

MonkeyJam is a free pencil testing software that you can use to composite your animations.

Also check some animation principle guides i have in my gallery too. They are in a folder labeled Animation Video guides and contain links to the videos on Youtube.

Ah, the neck was a problem with the character itself and the motion i was imagining where it would charge and keep it's head pointed forwards ><

did you say at one point that you use 20-25 frames per second? Cus for me I have a weird habit of turning down my frames per second to like...8 to 15 X(.
Reply
:icondarkmanethewerewolf:
DarkmaneTheWerewolf Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012  Professional General Artist
It runs at 25fps (Which is normal for animated films in UK-Pal. US-ntsc is normally 30fps) But, i'm also working in doubles which theoretically means the frame rate is 12.5 per second so your range is probably ok, though i wouldn't go too close to that 8.

:iconallaphaidole:
Allaphaidole Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
oh shoot then Im doing something wrong then! X( you use flash right? do you skip some frames or space them out ? the last time I used a 24 frame frame rate the entire thing looked like it was on high speed or something. <.<
Reply
:icondarkmanethewerewolf:
DarkmaneTheWerewolf Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012  Professional General Artist
Nope, i use GIMP to draw on and test the animations using After Effects or MonkeyJam.

I work in doubles so the frames last for 2 slots. Though technically, the software still plays it at 25 fps, since i've doubled each frame, it is actually 12.5 fps in truth =p

huh, I didn't realize gimp had animation. my flash suiet has aftereffects but I dont know how that kind of thing works XD better late than never I suppose!lol Thanks for replying! hopefully changing the frames will fix my problem.

DarkmaneTheWerewolf Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012  Professional General Artist
Oh, no, it doesn't (well, by default it doesn't, you can get an animation plugin but it's not very good =(), i'm just drawing onto it as if i were drawing on layers of paper. Its also able to composite your layers into a gif though, so after i've drawn them out and tested or editted them in another program, i'll usually port them back and make the gif =p
