A little part of my thesis that I did a year ago...

My thesis was about animating big cats, so I studied the most common movements of big cats and made some example animations of them. This is just a tiny part of all I did for it, but it shows the three most common movements of big cats: walk, trot and gallop. And how the gait changes between the different movements.

If you would like to get to know how those movements could be animated, I might be posting the animation sheets online somewhere. Dunno yet what would be the best way, so you can affect on my decision.. Comment below what would be the best way to publish the animation sheets ( blog, dA, .pdf, etc.)?

The animation sheets would include walk, trot, gallop, jump, lie down and getting up. And also some more or less interesting facts about how big cats move..

@00:16i feel like his head moves a LOT. might be just me, but i think it'd be hard to hunt when youre head is going all over the place like that. Just what i see :)

@00:16Oh yeah, you're definitely right. When tiger (or any other cat) is focused on the prey the head moves very little and is quite stiff. In this example I basically just united 3 different animations so they were not particularly made about hunting, and since I was running out of time finishing my thesis I didn't have time to perfect them... :P

But good notice anyway! :)
