Made with Cinema 4D.
I really like the place where it stops, it adds some life to it :3
Overall, it's beautifully done. Just a couple tweaks to really make it pop!
It's been fun watching the progress for this on tumblr!
As the dino moves, the inner claws on the feet do not make any movements at all. they constantly stay erect. Wouldn’t they move any? I don’t know of claw movements between birds, lizards, or dinosaurs, but I would assume they would falter at least a little when he comes to that stop.
When I run, I have a tendency to firmly hold my arms up against my sides so their not lose all over the place, so when I look at this little guy speed up, my mentality is would he also clench his hands closer?
I'm not an animal expert and I know you observe them more then I do, I’m just curious about if lizards or dinos would do such movements or not?
This walk is really great, walk cycles can be really difficult to make look correct. The movements of the head when it looks around definitely give it a sense of life and personality.
There are a few things I noticed that were a little off. I am by no means an animation expert, so you can totally ignore me if you want! First, the left foot sinks into the ground during the beginning of the walk (which might not matter I don't know). Secondly, as the left leg steps down it has a quick movement as it makes contact with the ground. Just like it's stepping down to fast. I not sure if I'm describing it well. At my school we call it a pop. Anyway, it's pretty subtle. The last thing is the head movement when it turns forward again. It seems like it leads with the back of its head then turns to face front, instead of doing a full swing with its head. Again, I'm probably not explaining well and maybe that's how birds move.
This is just my opinion on it and it's still a fantastic animation, I'm just being nitpicky. Also, sorry for the long comment.
belonging to this, wonderful job!
Did you render him completely from scratch or did you build him from a base model?
You have just inspired me to make an own model.
