Unicorn Slo-mo run- Rough by DarkmaneTheWerewolf Unicorn Slo-mo run- Rough by DarkmaneTheWerewolf
Usually, i'd do a horse run in 8 frames (Doubles) this slo mo run is 16 frames and therefore, half the speed.

This is just a rough animation test, i'll probably scrap it when i get a clean version up. All frames drawn in The GIMP.

for realism, you've got the gait wrong. you've got the front and back of the same side touching at the same time, when in reality, the opposite corners touch at the same time.

GIMP, Photoshop or After Effects. Most drawing software can do it for you.

oooo I love how it's pronking instead of just galloping or cantering. It really makes the near deer-like quality of unicorns realistic.

I just... I just LOVE how you animated him!

It's not quite horse-like, but a unique run of its own. Very fluid and very interesting. <3

I still can't animate anything on GIMP.........I use Sticky Notes:XD:

Do you know any websites/videos that would help me?

Mine? =p [link]

I really just use GIMP to draw out the frames because the animation plugin for it kinda sucks. They got plenty of tutorials on their site and i'm sure theres plenty of video tutorials on youtube.

MonkeyJam is what i use to quickly test the animations too. Thats pretty straight-forward, import pictures and click preview =p

Is it just lightly galloping? I'm gonna be critical, and I'm no expert! But from what you taught me! Aren't the legs a bit too in sync? The back and front legs? Would there some sort of delay in any of the pairs? I can see a slight delay but would there need to be a bigger gap? Just to show, as with animation you need to exaggerate!! That's just my thought!! Feel free to ignore it!

No, i agree, though i didnt intend for it to be a full gallop, it's a bit synced to be even a canter. It worked well as a canter when it was just 8 frames, just adding the frames inbetween messed it up i think :( but i dont see how it could have happenned.

Well, in a way, i guess i've taught you well, grasshopper!! =p

Are you saying I make a noise when I rub my leg on my side?? =P

And I still have your drawings of birds and stuff that you gave me, do you want them back??

Nah, you can keep them for future reference, unless you really dont want them.

Love the simplicity of this, they way you have kept the 'shape' drawing style through out the animation.

This was made entirely in The GIMP which is a completely free alternative to Photoshop.

With longer animated scenes and for tests, i use MonkeyJam which is also completely free (But buggy).

Oooh so pretty :D I love how it all comes together so nicely. Though it does look rather like it's flying during one part... but it's slow motion so that's probably to be expected :XD: Great animation :meow:

I've actually been more active in my art recently, despite lack of evidence on here... I just need to find time to scan stuff etc.
