Quadrupeds are always challenging so it’s great to get as much insight as you can.

Have a look around

Animation Workflow: William Groebe of Tippett Studios shares Tips and Tricks for Animating Animals

A great little video about William Groebe‘s experience animating animals. He has been on the industry for quite some time and is a Animation Supervisor over at Tippett Studios. During part of his breakdown of all the variations and types of ways and styles to animate creatures and/or animals, I remembered my time at Rhythm and Hues. I would go from animating Carlos on Hop to realistic Penguins on Mr. Poppers Penguins and back and forth like that. I found that each film was challenging and allowed me to grow all the time as an animator. It’s like that at most VFX houses switching from one to another frequently so you really have to adapt quickly. We had a ton of real live footage like William talks about and get a chance to really study the moves of animals.
