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

You dont need flash =p I made this entirely with GIMP which is readily available to download and completely free! There is no limit to doing animation, everything is available to you if you have the initiative to work with what you have or can easily get. I even started out with paper and a crappy old webcam taped to my desk XD
