Because I can't just go through this break without drawing a horse to bother Phil. This may get painted at some point; not right now though. I've had more than enough of fighting with those legs for tonight (he's not actually in a specific gait, more just prancing-on-the-spot. I put the legs where they looked good - if I tried to give an eight-legged horse an actual gait I would have broken down crying). Thank goodness for Eadweard Muybridge and George Stubbs.
Believe it or not his body is actually too short! There
should be more space between the back-front leg and the front-back leg,
but he was looking like a dachshund horse so I decided to make him look less weird by shortening his middle.
Also, I'm coming back in September instead of the planned March. Course changes mean the Animation unit is now a year-round series of workshops.
