Lor run-glide cycle by DarkmaneTheWerewolf Lor run-glide cycle by DarkmaneTheWerewolf
A character in Cornelius' story (Which i haven't forgotten about!) and brother of Prestor, but rather than having another set of legs, Lor's middle pair develop into Wings as he is a Flopside Lizard rather than Flipside like Prestor.

What better way to have a break from doing animated commission work than doing more animation =p

Lor and Prestor's designs have finally been completed but not properly shown here. Is not perfect, the head and tail jumps slightly, theres a kink in the left wing, etc, but I just wanted to show a little on how Lor moves about (And that i haven't entirely abandonned Cornelius' Story ><)

34 frames, 25fps, doubles.

I also have a Youtube Channel: www.youtube.com/user/DarkmaneT…

Also, if you're an artist or animator yourself, consider joining the Channel Frederator Network, a massive community of friendly and helpful people in the field who have helped me to grow and monetise my Youtube Channel and helped me get to where I am today! Join the Channel Frederator Network

One day you will if you practice a lot =) there's nothing else for it. I never started off doing things like this. Animation is my job and that's how I got where I am and I still have a lot to learn too.

Question. I don't know if you do, but dragon wise, what do you use as a reference? I can draw dragons, but somehow, animation wise, I just can't get the wings right. I LOVE your style.

DarkmaneTheWerewolf Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2015  Professional General Artist
I usually use Bird and Human arm muscles for the structure of the wing and Bat or Albatross wings for the shape. Depends on the Dargon itself, but I like my dragons to have very defined and angularly shaped wings =p

As do I. I just really struggle trying to animate them flying, because I can't seem to understand how the wings work!

I notice that your preview images are moving, how can you do that? when I submit an animated gif, they ask for a preview image, which is always still....

:icondarkmanethewerewolf:
DarkmaneTheWerewolf Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2015  Professional General Artist
Still image preview can be any size but Animated preview images need to be 150x150 or less. Just make a small version of the gif =p

If you're interested in becoming an animator, be sure to check the guides i've made on the subject in my gallery's guides folder. They're all based on how I learnt while I was at university so please take a look.

How do you post animations on YouTube? Also oh my god you are amazing I look up to you so badly ;u;
Reply
:icondarkmanethewerewolf:
DarkmaneTheWerewolf Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2015  Professional General Artist
Full list of instructions are found on Youtubve here: support.google.com/youtube/top…

Basically, just make sure your animation is in a video format (Like .avi, .mov, .wmv, etc), moving image formats like .gif do not work. Log into your account, click the upload button at the top right side of the page and select or drag and drop your video into the space.

Be sure to check out the animation guides I have made in my Gallery's Guides folder or on my personal Youtube channel =)

Ah, I see =p Well for DeviART, you can do short animations in .gif format which is what i've done here. Most drawing software can do this, if you're unsure, just type .gif at the end of your filename manually and see if it accepts it XD If it does, it should walk you through the steps on whether you want it animated etc.

If you're looking to upload films in video format, you will need to apply to be a part of the film community: help.deviantart.com/842/

Be aware that films must be entirely your own creation and a minimum of 10 seconds long and cannot contain copyrighted sounds or music.
