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…

This is incredibly awesome! I love how smooth the animation is, the design is also badass.  But above all else, that glorious bit when the wings act like another set of limbs. That alone makes this 10x times better than it could've been xD

the fact that it has arms and wing arms makes it 4-armed... Kinda reminds me of Gore Magala from MH4U, amazing work :D

Love how his back legs don't even touch the ground when the wings take over and the extra overlapping on the tail is great

I don't like to say because it's not the program that makes the animation. I draw it frame by frame and that is more important than how fancy the software is.

Lor is a character in one of my stories. I don't have a full ref for him yet but he is a Flopside lizard, a flipped version of his brother Prestor who is a Flipside lizard =p

This is just exported as an animated gif in whatever software I was using at the time. Photoshop, GIMP and Sai all do it as most other related software will. Otherwise, you can get video editing software to do it too.

Thank you very much =)

As a working Freelance animator myself, I'm glad to see my work inspiring people like yourself. Please check out some of the video guides I have on Youtube (They are linked through various deviations in my tutorials and guides folder here: darkmanethewerewolf.deviantart… )

Everything there is based on what I learnt over the years and while studying at University so i hope they'll be helpful to you =)

FOUND THIS AGAIN. YUSSS :happybounce:

You have no idea how much this has inspired me, Darkmane :} I cannot really animate all that well, but every time I see a running dragon, I want the wings to do more than just float or hover above them. THis is the only one I've found so far that does what I think they should do XD

So, I wanted to leave a comment and say thank you :} This is epic and totally awesome and inspires me to try to animate, or at least draw what I see, now that i've got a visual.
