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.

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 =)

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.

You are very welcome =) I'm glad to see my work is inspiring people to do better and try animation.

I also have a number of animation guides in my gallery on the principles of animation too. They're all based on what I learnt while I was studying animation at University so they're worth a look =p
