Dear God, what has my life come to at this point? Here I am learning all the trates of what could make me a good animator in the future.. and here I am working on a lousy loop of a fat pony character trying to walk on their hind legs because they're too big to walk on all 4's now. XD

Oh well. =p

Just a test really. This is also some experimenting with some of the principles of animation which we are covering at Uni at the moment. In this case, the principles here are;

- Squash and Stretch.
- Straight Ahead.
- Timing.

Just to show I am alive, and I am still using Flash and a tablet. Lawl. I dunno though, I may develop this a little more in time. For now though, time for rest.

Enjoy! =D

Made in Flash CS5.

Shouldn't it be walking on all 4s?

The pony is too big to walk around without their belly dragging along the ground, so they have to walk on their hind legs to move. =p

Well, I'd imagine it would be difficult to trot along with a belly that big. XD

Its got a nice sense of weight with the up and down motion of the stomach and the butt and have you read "The Animators Survival Kit" or watched the DVD box set of it by any chance?

I do have that book in my possession and I will agree it is a great read for someone studying animation. :) I did base reference to carrying the weight of a character from Richard William's diagrams to the best of my abilities to help make this look more realistic. (Well, realistic in the fat pony sence) ^^;

Yeah the book and DVD's are amazing and I thought the up and down motion on the belly look familiar :p

Thanks a bundle. I thought about trying to add in the follow through effect of her running and the head seemed one idea to go with. :)
