Have started on my next project of animating a quadruped creature focusing on body mechanics.
I have sourced some slow motion footage of a dog running. The footage has minimal camera movements and is aimed from the side so it allows me to look at the motion of the run in detail.
Currently i am thinking of trying to animate the creature chasing a ball and coming to a sliding stop.
this could be a interesting range of dynamic movement to try to experiment with.
For this project I will be using the Boxy Tiger rig supplied from Truong Rigs.
This is the footage I have chosen to use as background refference
