I was reading a new book I bought called In the Company of Wolves, and there was a passage about how wolves moved. I thought it was a great explaination for those who'll want to try more walk cycles. It goes as follows:

The long-legged, loose-jointed trot of a moving wolf is as much a defining quality as the creature's teeth. A wolf traveling across the landscape bounces slightly. Its big, splaying paws glance off the earth and curl as they rise, and they seem to whip the body forward. The lithe backbone coils and releases like a spring, but the bend is almost unnoticeable, so fluid is the motion. The hind feet tread in line behind the forefeet, unlike dogs, whose hind feet slap down beside the forefeet. When a wolf is walking, its hind feet step right into the impressions left by the forefeet; the movement is spare and economical.

Yea i guess it would make sense that they walk like that cause they leave less tracks and they dont need to 'break' the ground again...

Theres alot of diffrences between wolves and dogs. Like if you watch a wolf trot or walk or run it looks diffrent as a dog would do it. A wolf`s eyes are very diffrent too,they have that wonderful stare,very expressive. When they run its kinda like a gallop. oh yeah,wolves have 42 teeth! :cheese:

I have uploaded a small video clip of a wolf walking to my photo site. http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4289269445 You have to download it though. It is a relitively small file(660kb) so it shouldn't take to long even on a 56k connection. Sorry that the picture is so small but it was before I figured out how to change the settings on my camera. I will try to get some better quality videos next weekend.

I need some input before I go and shoot any more video clips. I was looking through all of my video clips for any high quality wolf clips. I found one of my higher quality mpegs. The problem is that it is a 42 second clip and it is a 14+meg file. I am now in a position at the center where I can get some better shots and they would make good reference material for the animators. What I want to know is, does anyone know of a site that will host streaming video for free (not likely). Unless you have have high speed internet downloading a file that large from imagespace will take forever. My best friend has cable internet so uploading them is no problem, I just want to try to make things as easy for you guys as possible. :cheese:

yes, you can actually have some fun with how the wolves move. Since this production wants to bring back the tradition of some older animated films, I would recommend maybe like; proud alpha wolves walk very aloof with their feet lifting high in the air. etc.

In animation,(which I'm sure you all know) the way the character moves gives it's mood or even personality.

It is good to research realistic wolf gaits, trots, and runs, but with the animator's talent turn it into something colorful in it's cartoony world.

If you want a realistic reel of a wolf running, watch an episode of Wolf's Rain and watch the end credits. Thats pretty close to the actual thing.

just....what I think.

Pawnee, is it in a computer format? AVI or MOv, maybe?
